CALL: Torquere Anthologies Open in 2010

Some authors love anthologies, some hate them. From a marketing perspective, publishing in an anthology is a good strategic move for a newer author. Aside from the guaranteed money, you're going to get your work into the hands of a reader who might not have bought your story as a standalone. Building audience is the name of the game early in your career.

Ménage anthologies sell especially well through distributors (amazon.com, for example) and so also get your work out to readers beyond the regulars who buy directly from the Torquere site.



Mine
Sometimes there can be no question about it: you're owned. And that possessive little growl from your own personal vampire or werewolf is the sexiest thing on the planet. Mine is a paranormal e-anthology about this most exclusive of bonds, edited by Shawn Clements. We're looking for m/m stories that sizzle, 3,000 to 8,000 words. Payment is a flat fee of $35.00 for first-time electronic rights. No reprints, please. Deadline for submission is June 15, 2010, with publication projected for October. Please submit the story, along with a synopsis, your contact information, and author biography, to submissions@torquerepress.com with Mine in the subject line.


Taken
Fangs. Claws. Ghostly shadows in the night. Taken is about the mysterious compulsion of the paranormal as it plays out in a m/m/f ménage. An unearthly white lady who bewitches two handsome knights? A hapless mortal who finds himself the captive of the Faerie king and queen? Whatever the situation, you can guarantee the characters will be taken with each other. We want loving relationships and happy endings, though all sensual heat levels are welcome. Preferred length is 8,000 – 12,000 words.
