I’m very excited to be taking part in a new gay romance box set about military men. (Especially considering military men won my recent poll on your favourite romance heroes!) Cat Grant is the editor, and she’s looked for a few good
men authors to contribute. Interested in writing about gay soldiers? Here’s the info from Cat below.
I’m putting together a self-published boxed set of M/M military man stories for release later this year. Right now there’s me, LA Witt, Keira Andrews and two other possible authors on board. Ideally, I’d like ten authors in the bundle.
In a nutshell, I’m looking for: Novella length stories – 15 – 25K. Contemporary preferred, the hotter the better. I’d like to have the bundle available in time for GayRomLit this October, which means I would need the completed stories (beta’ed, edited and ready for publication) in hand no later than August 15th. (I will, of course, copy-edit for consistency in grammar, spelling, etc., but the stories will have to be beta’ed and/or edited at the authors’ expense.)
The bundle will be available for a limited time only (October through next February or March). After that, we settle accounts, take the bundle off sale and all rights revert back to the individual authors.
The object here is not to make wads of cash, but gain greater exposure — ideally, to hit the NYT and/or USA Today lists. No guarantee it’ll happen, but that’s what we’re shooting for. I will be the editor/project manager on this bundle, and will publish it under my Cat Grant Books imprint on Amazon. (I will probably upload it to Nook, Kobo and iTunes through my Smashwords account as well.) I estimate the cost for cover art, formatting, etc., to be about $300-400, the cost of which will be split among all the participating authors (so if we get ten authors – $30-40 each).
