Slash Books -- "In Uniform" -- Short Story Fiction
Slash Books Call For Submissions - "In Uniform"
(Almost) nothing is sexier than a person in uniform!
Slash Books is looking for short stories (500 - 20K words) that explore the gay or lesbian relationships of people in uniform - any uniform. Firefighters, police, french maids... all of these are valuable fodder for our target authors. We want to learn all about the many ways people in uniform find love!
Your story should focus on the relationship and its evolution. While sex is a part of a healthy relationship, we're looking for plot and characterization, not simple PWP. Intriguing characters and interesting situations are the ticket to success here. Be creative! All genres (humour, action, angst, etc) welcome.
The chosen stories will be published in print and e-book form, and all authors will be compensated based on story length as well as per item sold. Each author will also get up to three printed copies of the full anthology free of charge.
Deadline for pitches: August 1 2009
Deadline for submissions: September 15 2009
Estimated publication date: October 15 2009.
