DEADLINE: October 15, 2013

JMS Books LLC is a small press specializing in LGBT romance ranging from sweet to erotic. We have over 90 authors publishing with us and our YA imprint, Queerteen Press. We release 4 e-books a week and 3-4 print books a month.

We are currently open to submissions, and are particularly interested in holiday stories to be released in December 2013.

We pay 50% net royalties on sales through all distribution channels. Our contracts are for an initial period of 2 years. A sample contract is available upon request.

We do not accept reprints or previously published content (including self-published stories). We do not consider multiple or simultaneous submissions.



* Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgender fiction
* Between 10,000 and 55,000 words
* Containing a romantic plot
* Revolving around a winter holiday (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, Yule, etc)

Stories may be any subgenre (contemporary, fantasy, paranormal, etc). Erotic content is encouraged but not required; however, we aren’t looking for stroke stories. Stories MUST BE a romance at heart.

We are not looking for young adult holiday stories at this time.



Send the first 2,000 words and a full synopsis to with “Holiday Submission” and the title of your story in the subject line.

We will respond to your email in less than 2 business days. If we like the story and request the full manuscript, our turnaround time is less than 1 week.
