JMS Books Special Submissions Calls

November 12, 2015

JMS Books LLC Special Submissions Calls

Deadline: Ongoing through July 31, 2016
Payment: Standard contract terms (50% net royalties from all channels)

We are looking for LGBT romance and erotic romance stories for three new lines. These will be released at least once a month on a rolling schedule as manuscripts are accepted.


There’s no denying it — daddies are hot! We aren’t talking bears here; we’re looking for stories about dads with young kids who need a husband to make them complete. Or maybe he doesn’t think Mr. Right wants someone who comes with a diaper bag and sippy cups in tow. Maybe the man of his dreams turns out to be his new male nanny? However your father figure finds true love, we want to read about it! Show us how Daddy Dearest introduces his new boyfriend to his children. Will they be able somehow to form a family?


When your life’s on the line, who has your back? For policemen, FBI agents, detectives, and firemen, etc., there is no one they trust more than their buddy, their partner, the one person on whom they depend. What happens when that partnership deepens into something more? Show us — take it beyond the mean streets and flashing lights, into the bedroom or the darkened alleyway. What happens in the long hours of a stakeout? Or late at night in a shared hotel room while on assignment? These men might project a strong, tough guy image to the world, but how tender can be with each other?


Animals can be a great judge of character, and sometimes they know before we do whether or not someone is perfect for us. We want stories about man’s best friend playing matchmaker — not just dogs, but cats, horses, goats, birds, any kind of animal that might help break the ice between two lonely hearts looking for love. Or maybe they weren’t looking, but Fluffy or Fido knows better. A rider’s horse throws a shoe every time a sexy farrier is visiting the stable. A cat gets stuck in a tree, and his owner falls for the hunky fireman who shows up to rescue him. A stray dog on the side of the highway brings together a concerned motorist and a state policeman. How are these men drawn together because of their love of animals?


Individual stories in each line will have a unique cover with a similar theme to tie them together. Stories over 40,000 words that sell more than 50 copies in electronic format will also be released in paperback.

For each line:

  • Stories must be between 20,000 to 60,000 words
  • Stories must contain a romance — any heat level, from sweet to erotic
  • Romantic relationship must be MM, MMM, or MMF
  • Stories must have a HEA or HFN ending
  • Stories can be any sub-genre (contemporary, historical, paranormal, futuristic, etc.)
  • Adult stories only (no YA)


All stories submitted must adhere to the general guidelines found on our website here. We do not consider multiple or simultaneous submissions.

Send your submission to with the name of the line and the title of your story in the subject line.

Heat Wave: Wildwood is now available!

August 23, 2015

My latest lesbian romance writing as J.T. Marie, Heat Wave: Wildwood, is now available!

When Tara receives a wedding invitation from a cousin she hasn’t seen in years, she knows it’s nothing more than a bid for a gift or money. But Amanda lives in Wildwood, New Jersey, where Tara used to spend her summers as a child, and a much-needed vacation down the shore sounds like the perfect way to finish off a hectic summer.

Every hotel in the tourist trap is booked, though, so Tara’s Aunt Marlene invites her to stay with them the week of the wedding. But Wildwood isn’t quite the island paradise she remembers from her youth, and both her relatives would rather get drunk than have fun on the boardwalk. Plus Marlene is determined to set Tara up with a coworker of hers even though Tara isn’t interested — in men or in romance.

The vacation is beginning to look like a bust until the night of Amanda’s bachelorette party, when Tara meets Delaney, a pretty bartender with fiery curls and a personality to match. Suddenly the summer heat isn’t the only thing making her sweat. Can Tara salvage what’s left of her time in Wildwood with Delaney’s help? Or will family obligations keep her from following her heart?

Heat Wave: Richmond is now available!

July 31, 2015

My latest story, Heat Wave: Richmond, is now available!

Danny Masterson is finally getting a place all his own, and he couldn’t be more excited. Since college he’s lived with his best buddy Rob, but when Rob’s pregnant girlfriend moved in, Danny knew it was time to move out. His new apartment has all the amenities, and the sexy neighbor living downstairs named Kyle only sweetens the deal.

But a heat wave hits when Rob helps Danny move in, and the apartment’s A/C isn’t working right. Maintenance won’t come out because Danny isn’t listed as a tenant yet, so he’s stuck sweating it out over the long, Fourth of July weekend.

Kyle invites Danny to stay downstairs in his apartment in air conditioned bliss, but he has a pretty roommate named Nadia who may or may not be his girlfriend. Danny thinks Kyle might be interested in him, but so far Kyle hasn’t said or done anything to move things forward between them. Will things ever heat up between them? Or is Danny going to end up getting burned?
