Call for Submissions: M/M Steampunk Anthology


UPDATE 5/10! SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED! THANKS!

Mind you, this won't be the cover. I'm excited that I get the chance to edit a whole steampunk anthology! I love going to the cons and seeing the enthusiasm for the works, so maybe this will be a good match.

Call: M/M and Menage Steampunk Anthology, Title TBA
Edited by: Leigh Ellwood
Projected release date: late 2010
Format: eBook (with possible print release)
Publisher: Phaze Books
Payment: $50 for one-time electronic and print rights, plus copies

Hey, all you steampunk enthusiasts, grab your goggles and get to writing! Phaze Books is planning an M/M (and bi-M menage) steampunk collection for eBook publication in 2010. If you have a yen for 19th century history with a touch of good humor and technological innovation (and a whole lot of manlove!), we hope you'll send us your hottest steampunk erotic romance of 10K - 20K words. If you're not sure about the genre, check out this Wikipedia entry for steampunk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk) to get an idea of the style of stories we're looking for. Think H.G. Wells or Wild Wild West, then turn up the steam factor with an incredible M/M or MMF/MMM match-up!

This call is open indefinitely until the spots are filled. Contributors will offer one-time electronic and print rights to their works and receive a one-time payment of $50 and contributors copies (eBook and/or print, if the book goes to print).

To submit to this anthology, please follow the Phaze Books structural guidelines at http://www.phaze.com/submissions.html and attach your RTF submission to Leigh Ellwood, c/o Phaze Books at submissions @ phaze (dot) com. Please use STEAMPUNK ANTHOLOGY is your subject header.

Launched in November, 2004, Phaze Books has offered a wide selection of erotic romance and women's erotica in eBook and print formats. We are proud to have a number of best-selling and rising stars of romance in our catalog, as well as a Romantic Times Top Pick, an EPPIE winner, and several EPPIE nominees.
