The Women Who Love to Love Gay Romance
Editor: Ryan Field

Deadline: May 1, 2013
Payment & Rights: One time flat fee of $25.00. Rights sought are non exclusive one-time anthology rights

It’s no secret there are more than a few straight women who love to read gay romances, and the audience seems to be growing. I’m looking for the most heartfelt stories about the women who love to love, and read, gay romance on the planet. The call is open to everyone, men and women, straight and gay. New writers are encouraged to submit, and readers who always wanted to write fiction are even more encouraged to submit. Established authors are welcome as well. But new writers don’t get hung up on grammar and writing because all that can be edited. I’m looking more for great stories about fantasies the women who love to love gay romance have always dreamed about telling. Pen names are fine, and absolute discretion is also something I will respect and take very seriously.

The focus of each story should be at least about one woman (could be more than one) who finds herself involved in a situation either related to gay romance or connected to gay men…or the woman could find herself in a situation where she’s actually part of a gay romance. Think fantasy; think about what you’ve always wanted to do while reading a gay romance and write your own story about it. And don’t hold back. There are no rules this time. It’s fiction, it’s fantasy, it’s escapism in the truest form. It could be a short story based on a favorite fanfic novel. Or it could be fanfic based on something you’ve read and loved. It could be steamy and sexy or emotional and tender. The erotic part is up to you. Or it could be a short story based on a private fantasy you’ve always had about gay men but never had the chance to talk about openly. The only request is that it should be original and never published before.

This is a chance for everyone who has ever read gay romance to do what they’ve always wanted to do with a gay romance. The storylines are infinite and because it’s pure fantasy there’s no wrong way to do it. Don’t worry about what you think I want. Worry more about what you have always wanted to do. If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to seduce a gay man, then write about it and submit it. Contributors will be paid a one time flat fee of $25.00. Word count could range from 3,000 words to 7,000 words, but don’t hold me to that. If a story is 2,500 words and I love it, I’m including it.

If you’ve never been published it’s a good chance to start building publishing credits. If you’ve always dreamed about getting published at least once, and you’re not interested in a writing career, this might be perfect for you to see your name in print just once.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at: And put “The Women Who Love to Love Gay Romance” in the subject line of the e-mail. If you don’t hear back from me within a week, e-mail me again in case the first one went to spam or I missed it.

Deadline date for this is May 1, 2013. And I’m looking at a summer 2013 digital only release date.
