Sub Op

Scheduled to launch in November 2015, NineStar Press would like to see submissions of "LGBTQA romance fiction, literary novels, and erotica shorts.

For romance
Length: 12-120k words.
Heat: Sweet (no sex or “fade-to-black”) through to fully erotic.
Content: The story must have an LGBTQA romance running through it. Both HEA and HFN accepted.
Genre: Currently seeking works in the following genres—contemporary, paranormal, romantic suspense, sci-fi & fantasy, horror/thriller, crime, BDSM, historical, cowboy/western, New Adult/college.

For erotica
Length: 5-12k words.
Heat: Super hot. Scorching.
Content: Must be focused on LGBTQA characters. Romance isn’t necessary. Lust/sexual tension definitely is. Strong payoff.
Genre: All genres and kinks considered other than those listed in the “what we don’t accept” section below.

For literary novels
Length: 45-120k words.
Heat: If applicable, sex scenes of any heat level are fine, provided they serve the story.
Content: Must have an LGBTQA main character. Romance plots aren’t necessary. We’re particularly interested in well-crafted stories about trans, ace, aro, nonbinary, and genderfluid characters.
Genre: All considered.

Standalones, series & serials all considered across the board. Serials must have a defined ending in each instalment. Previously published or self-published books are considered. Authors with orphaned books after the folding of a publishing company are encouraged to submit. You must own all rights to the story.

What we don’t accept
Pedophilia
Necrophilia (doesn’t apply to vamps, zombies and any other kind of “undead”—they’re a-okay with us!)
Incest (step relations are considered)
Bestiality (doesn’t apply to shifters or most sci-fi & fantasy creatures with human forms)

Special Call for Seasonal Stories!
In addition to our regular submissions request, we’re also currently on the lookout for seasonal stories for the holidays/winter release period. These stories must have a winter or Christmas/holiday theme. Any genre, any category, and within the word count length parameters stipulated in our general guidelines.
