Call For Submissions
Publisher: Torquere Press
Deadline: February15, 2015
There’s something about mythology from all cultures that captures everyone’s imaginations, so snuggle up by the fire and tell us a mythological tale — with a Torquere twist! For our Mythologically Torqued 2015 anthology, we’re looking for fully realized, romantic LGBT mythological tale interpretations. Make us laugh, make us cry, or surprise us and make us glow with happy endings!
Please send your 3000 -10,000 word submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with ” Mythologically Torqued” and your story title in the subject field. Please see our general submissions guidelines for formatting etc. Deadline for submission is February 15, 2015; all submissions will be held and reviewed after the deadline.
If the completed anthology reaches a minimum word count of 60K, the book may go to print. In that case, payment is a $35 flat fee for first time electronic and print rights for three years, as well as an electronic and print copy of the book. Print rights are reserved for six months. If the print rights are not optioned, all print rights revert to the author.
We’ll also be releasing the story on its own in ebook format. Royalties for the single title electronic version will be 45% net on books sold through Torquere Books and 35% net on books sold through our distributors, again for a period of three years.
