CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Coming Home (Gay Erotic Romance Stories)
Deadline: February 28, 2017
Payment: 50% net royalties paid quarterly
Contract: 2 years exclusive, renewable
NOTE: This isn’t an anthology; the stories will be released as individual ebooks with unique covers.
There’s nothing quite like coming home to the people who love you. We’re looking for M/M romance and erotic romance novellas and novels with a homecoming theme. No, not the school dance — we want stories in which the main character returns home after an absence and finds true love waiting for him.
Maybe he’s like a prodigal son who left under bad terms. Or perhaps he left seeking something just out of reach, only to find what he’s always wanted closer than he thought. Is he coming home after making a name for himself out in the world? Or crawling back in defeat? Maybe tragedy (death of a family member) brings him home but tragedy is turned to joy with the help of a special someone.
Whatever his reasons, he heads home to claim — or discover — true love was right in front of him all along. These stories must be about men returning home and falling in love, whether with someone from their pasts or with someone new. Show us who, or what, brings him home again and what kind of welcome he receives.
- Stories must be between 12,000 words or longer
- Stories must contain a romance — any heat level, from sweet to erotic
- Romance must be MM or MMM ONLY
