Writer's Call; Steampunk m/m stories
Edited by Anne Regan
Dreamspinner Press is seeking romantic short stories with steampunk themes.
Possible examples: Ulysses makes mechanical flowers that bloom to try to catch the eye of the quiet, bookish man who lives next door. Shop owner Abe fell in love with inventor Adolph from afar, but what does he have to offer? Nobleman August holds himself above love until he meets commoner Charlie, a man he can’t have. Bart and Coleson want a family and adopt an orphan who has an uncommon talent.
Editor’s Note: Because of the packaged nature of the anthology, all stories need to stand alone. No sequels to or spin-offs of previously published works, please.
Submission Deadline: July 1, 2013
Publication Date: October 2013
Single-book anthology story length: 3,500 - 12,000 words
Manuscripts shorter or longer will be considered but will have to be extraordinary.
