Call for Submissions — Love Wins (LGBT marriage stories)


Love Wins (LGBT Erotic Romance Stories)

Deadline: December 31, 2016
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. They will have the same covers as the stories released in this series last year.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. Last year our Love Wins series was very successful, but we know many authors missed out due to limited space on our release schedule. This year, we’re opening the series to anyone interested in submitting.

To celebrate the recent advances made in LGBT rights throughout the world, we’re looking for stories of men and women who finally get the chance to formally declare their love for each other. These stories need to focus on a wedding ceremony of some sort, but we’ll leave the details up to you.

TMaybe your couple has been together for fifty years and can now tie the knot, but one of them is getting cold feet. Or perhaps two men meet at someone else’s wedding and end up at their own. How about a bridesmaid who meets the girl of her dreams at the bridal shop when she goes for a fitting for her best friend’s wedding? Or maybe the wedding singer hits the perfect note with the caterer after the reception.

Whatever your scenario, make it sweet and sexy! Stories may include characters from other titles you’ve previously published with JMS Books.
