[MARKET] Samhain Publishing

With permission from my super duper editor over at Samhain publishing, Sasha Knight, I'm forwarding this open call for submissions to you guys and gals. All the details are below and good luck to those of you who submit!

Coming in Summer 2007, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S STEAM, Samhain's RED HOT summer-themed short stories.

What are the rules of these summer-themed short stories? They must be RED HOT erotic romances. Steamy. Sexy. HOT! I'm looking for M/F, M/M, M/F/M and any other multiple combinations thereof. They MUST be a romance--they have to have a happily ever after. And, they must take place in the summer. I want sun, sand, sex. (Well, not necessarily the sand--use your imagination!)

Any genre will do. If you want to write a futuristic space opera that takes place on a planet with five suns, go for it! Historical? That'll work, too!

We're not limiting the number of submissions we publish. Each book will be judged on its own merits, quality of story and originality.

Our current plan is to publish the stories separately in digital, over the course of several weeks, and then group them accordingly for print. If you are interested in participating in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S STEAM, this is what you'll need to send:

* A completed story, 12-15k in length, following the above-listed theme requirements.

* A one-page synopsis.

* Only original, never-before-been published stories will be consideredfor A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S STEAM.

Submissions are due by January 31, 2007. Because this is a special project, Sasha Knight will be editing all the stories. Submissions should be sent to Sasha @ Samhainpublishing .com or sashaknightandday @ PLEASE put SUMMER SHORT STORY SUBMISSION in the subject line.
