Real life got in the way yesterday so the blog post was delayed. It’s probably still Monday in America though, so I consider it only a half failure!
Today we’re looking at the Bronzeville books anthology ‘Twisted Love’. They’re after fiction addressing complicated relationships:
Bronzeville is now open to submissions for an anthology called Twisted Love. Twisted Love will feature stories with unsettling and unconventional relationships. Give us stories of toxic relationships or lovers bound by crime or fetish. Think Soldier and Angel from Hap and Leonard, season 1.
They’re open until the end of November, looking for crime/spec fic./ya fiction unto 3,000 words, and paying 5c US/word. Note: just because a relationship is complicated doesn’t mean you have to be a dick:
We will not publish works that appear to promote hate towards people based on their religion, race, gender or orientation. While we may publish a story about racism, or that has sexism or bigotry as a component, there’s a line between writing about something and endorsing it. When necessary, we will hire a sensitivity editor to review content. “While we will consider stories that deal with sexual abuse, the acts should be alluded to but not detailed. We are not interested in publishing stories that would appeal to pedophiles or abusers.” – Sandra Ruttan
