Call For Submissions

Cruising: Gay Erotic Stories
Editor: Shane Allison
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: November 15, 2010 (earlier submissions preferred)
Payment: $60/story and 2 copies of the book on publication

Earlier submissions are truly welcome as I work on the books on a rolling basis so there’s more space at the beginning than near the end, though all stories submitted by the deadline will be considered. Cruising is open to gay male authors only for this anthology. I’m not accepting reprints.

Hot flings at a dirty truck stop. Homemade glory holes in the stall walls of a college toilet. Fun and fornication at an infamous park. Steamy bathhouse trysts and other tales of public eroticism is what Editor Shane Allison seeks for his new anthology tentatively entitled Cruising. This is the anthology I have dreamed of doing for years. There’s nothing that gets the adrenaline flowing and the muscle throbbing like public sex. I have written several stories on this theme and now I would like to gather stories by authors of like mind who love sex in the public arena as much as I do. I am looking for hot plots and even hotter character development. Don’t shy away from new erotic territory. Creativity and diversity of story lines are key. This book is geared toward a gay male audience. Kink, sex toys, exotic locations/scenarios welcome as long as there is an element of erotica. True life experiences are HIGHLY welcome.

How to submit: Send double spaced Times or Times New Roman 12 point black font Word document with pages numbered (RTF) of 1,500 to 5,000 words. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (regular double spacing, do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). US grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required. Include your legal name (and pseudonym if applicable), mailing address, and 50 word or less bio in the third person to cruisingsexantho@gmail.com. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you’d like to be credited as. I will get back to you by December 2010. Publisher has final approval over manuscript.

Deadline: November 15th, 2010

    If I don’t hear back, should I assume I’ve been rejected?
