WAYWARD INK PUBLISHING is seeking romantic M/M short stories

for our THREE’S NOT A CROWD anthology.

Why would anyone think three was a crowd?

No. No. No. No. No.

Three is a triangle…

and did you know it’s the strongest geometrical shape?

All the best things come in threes…

Muskateers, Primary colors, three-ringed circuses, stooges, blind mice, little pigs. The list goes on.

Of course they say trouble comes in three too…

but we won’t go there… or will we?

**giggle** There’s three sheets to the wind.

And **sigh** there’s three piece suits.

And trust us, it’s no coincidence that there are three ingredients in a BLT.

Or only three elements to the game Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Want to get physical??? Well, there’s…

three-legged races… (what were you thinking?)

Political? Of the people, by the people, for the people.

Or creepy? Hear no evil. Speak no evil. See no evil.

Why, three has so much going for it we don’t even need to mention a…

1………… / 2………… / 3………… sandwich

(substitute your own dream guys)

And of course, there’s: On your Mark. Get Set. And go!

So GO! Go write a short story for THREE’S NOT A CROWD

Here’s the nuts and bolts:

Story length:  3000 and 15,000 words

(Manuscripts longer/shorter will be considered, but they will have to be mind-blowing!)

M/M Romance Submission Calls: Torquere Press

Torquere Press

OPEN CALLS FOR ANTHOLOGIES

Our anthology calls are a great place to get your feet wet with a short story, or to explore a theme without committing to a full novella or novel. For all anthology calls, we’re looking for fully realized, romantic LGBT stories about the chosen monthly theme. Make us laugh, make us cry, or surprise us and make us glow with happy endings!

Please send your 10,000 – 20,000 word submissions to submissions@torquerepress.com with the title of the theme (ie: Torqued Tales) and your story title in the subject field. Please see our general submissions guidelines for formatting etc. Each theme has a title and due date listed on the individual call.

 

OCTOBER 2014 — ETERNALLY DARK — DEADLINE JULY 15

All vampires are creatures of darkness, but these have a twist: they’re forced to endure an existence of literal, as well as spiritual, darkness. Blind vamps use all of their other senses, including their sixth sense, to find both lovers and prey. Our Eternally Dark anthology will feature fully realized, romantic, stories about blind vampires. Deadline for submission is July 15, 2014.

 

NOVEMBER 2014 — PUNK’D — DEADLINE AUGUST 15

Whether we’re taking high tea in a dirigible over London, chasing exotic werebeasts through the jungles of Darkest Africa, or pitting Continental mechanical know-how against the New World’s sharp-shootin’ cowboys — steampunk, gaslamp, and clockpunk stories really crank our gears! The Punk’d anthology will feature fully realized, romantic gay (m/m) stories about life and love in the steampunk (and related) genres. Deadline for submission is August 15, 2014.

 

DECEMBER 2014 — SANTA’S LITTLE KINKSTERS — DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 15

We’re hoping to fill our stockings this holiday season with stories as kinky as the curls in Santa’s beard. Does the heat of a good spanking keep the winter chills at bay? Does practice tying up a sub help when it comes time to put garlands on the tree or ribbon on presents? Do the reindeer sometimes misbehave just so they can get a lick of the whip — and what do those elves do while Santa’s out delivering toys, anyway? Send us your fully realized, romantic m/m stories of holiday kink  for our Santa’s Little Kinksters anthology. Deadline for submission is September 15, 2014.

 

LESSONS IN LOVE CHARITY SIP BLITZ — DEADLINE JULY 1

http://www.pointfoundation.org/

We’re looking for fully realized GLBTQ stories that relate to academics, school, university and learning. We’re a romance publisher, so give us a good love story, on that will make the reader fall in love with the characters and root for them.

While we are accepting Prizm young adult submissions on this call, we are representing an organization that caters to students, and we need to make sure our content is age-appropriate. Feel free to surprise us with non-traditional students, alternative learning, and teachers or students of more than just English, Math and Science!

All submissions must be received by July 1, 2014 for a mid-September release. Earlier is better. Word count can range from 3000-8000 words. Longer will be considered, but please query first to help us accommodate our editing schedule! Please see our general submission guidelines for formatting requirements.
