Naughty Nights Press is seeking short erotic stories, M/M or M/M/M, 2500-5000 words, for the wonderfully provocative and stimulating Gay Male Fiction Anthology, The Boys Club.
We are looking for hot, thigh-trembling, sweat-glistening-on-the-body stories, with two or more virile men, showing their love and/or lust for each other in intimate relationships.
Preference to stories where the setting is in unusual places – without bedroom/couch scenes – a park bench, city bus…something where they could be discovered at anytime! We are looking for romantic suspense, fantasy or twisted endings or even paranormal gay male erotic stories.
Anything different from the usual mainstream (boy meets boy HEA) will be considered but it MUST contain intense sexual scenes and where all characters reach a climatic HEA or HFN ending.
All stories are to be well written, drawing the reader in and making them feel as though they are there; touching, exploring, and tasting every little image and emotion.
All characters must be 18 or over.
Please ensure that all submissions are followed in the manner detailed below. For multiple submissions please send each in its own individual email with separate cover information, synopsis, word count etc.
