Story Length: 2,500 – 5,000
Ravenous Romance is looking for original, unpublished erotic romance stories featuring gay cops or firemen. Think of your typical sultry fireman or hunky state trooper, and put them in a wild escapade. Perhaps the deputy chief is training his new lieutenant on how to put something other than a gun in a holster. Or maybe it’s a story of a fireman rescuing the man of his dreams from a burning house and soon realizes there’s another fire he needs to put out. You get the point.
The cop and fireman fantasy is a classic. It’s for this reason we want stories that will reinvent the wheel, and offer our readers something raw and kinky.
Please make sure your story has a strong plot, lots of graphic sex and a happy ending (pun intended). All stories must center only on gay men and include only gay sex.
Submission Guidelines: Email your 200-500 word submissions to taylor.dirkRR@gmail.com as a double-spaced Word doc with “GUNS ‘N HOSES” in the subject line. Please include your name (and pseudonym if applicable), bio, mailing address, email, title of the piece and word count as part of your document. The footer of each page should include your name and page number.
Compensation: Ravenous Romance short story advance of a $25 flat fee for one time world rights. Deadline Feb 29, 2012.
