This call came to me from super-cool editor Niel Plakcy, with an invitation to share with other erotica writers. That's you, right? Don't you write uber-hot, sexy-romantic gay fiction? Sure you do! Here's the call:
Call for Submissions: Active Duty - Fiery Gay Military Erotica
Call this book “The Joy of Military Sex” – with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the military is changing, and there’s no more need for gay servicemen to stay in the closet. The editor of Hard Hats, Beach Bums and The Handsome Prince is looking for erotically-charged stories that reflect the new openness among military personnel.
There’s no more need for furtive encounters in restrooms, no more angst about the loss of a career for a single indiscretion. Instead, consider the supply clerk who displays a rainbow flag discreetly on his desk. The lieutenant who can now march in a pride parade in his dress whites. The drill sergeant who no longer has to tolerate anti-gay epithets.
What’s sex like when jarheads, bird colonels and platoon daddies don’t have to hide any more? When medics, jet jockys, and PFCs can be proud of their military service? Unleash those torrid fantasies and turn them into hot stories!
