2018/2019 Submissions Calls (LGBTQ Romance Stories)

Missed Connections

Deadline: March 31, 2019
      We are looking for queer romance and erotic romance stories about missed connections. Maybe your character wrote down someone’s phone number wrong and now has to try to find him or her. Or a sudden romance blooms when your character misses a connecting flight or has to take a later train and finds Mr. or Ms. Right? Perhaps someone types in the wrong email address and, intrigued, the recipient replies?

Fun in the Sun

Deadline: April 30, 2019
      We are looking for queer romance and erotic romance stories set during the sultry summer months. We want your characters to fall in love with each other ... and with nature. At the beach or the mountains, at the lake or an amusement park -- it’s up to you! Warm weather usually leads to fewer clothes and maybe fewer inhibitions? Applying sunscreen to your own body is no fun, but asking someone else to get those hard to reach places can result in more than the sun heating things up.
