Still Hungry for your Love
OK, as predicted, zombies never die. As we await season 4 of Walking Dead, and the opening of World War Z, it’s time for more zombie loving.
So I am putting out the call for stories for Still Hungry for your Love, the second volume of my zombie romance anthology. This is a pansexual anthology, so all genders and sexualities are welcome!
Zombie love knows no boundaries. I’m looking for stories of love amongst the undead, between zombies and the living, and (we hope) many stories about the hot, alpha male and female zombie killers. These stories can take place in the zombie apocalypse, alternative reality, the future or on another planet. You can cross genres (zombie steampunk?) and even sexual proclivities (not sure I can even imagine zombie BDSM). But, hey, let’s be creative. and rip that envelope!
But seriously, folks. The zombie metaphor is rich. You know – we’re all really zombies; our jobs make us zombies; zombies are a reflection of the mindless horde that is America, rotting on its own abundance.
And the socio/political/scientific elements of the zombie mythos are still ripe for exploration. What’s it like to be king of the Zombies? Would zombie TV be any different? What exactly would it be like to be a zombie in love? Or to love a zombie?
So, hit me with your best shot.
Short stories should run between 1500 and 5000 words, and novellas between 20,000 and 30,000 words. Deadline August 31.
This will be an October title published by Riverdale Avenue Book in both ebook and print. Writers will receive a pro rata share of royalties paid quarterly.
PLEASE NOTE: Because of the nature of this anthology, the emphasis in these stories should be on the “romance” and not necessarily the “erotic.” But let’s see what you can do.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you are working on a story.
