TOUCH THE STARS is looking for sweet to super sexy stories about love in science fiction settings. Whether they be earth based, near future or in the far reaches of space and time, tell us how love transcends, and conquers any obstacle.
We’re looking for stories of love, passion and intimacy. They can be any heat level but please, nothing non-consensual, no incest (that INCLUDES STEPBROTHERS!), no minors and no bestiality. Also anything “toilet” oriented is very likely to be rejected. You know what we’re talking about.
We love romance, so if your pairing can find HEA or HFN we’ll be delighted. But that doesn’t mean a little tragedy or bittersweet longing won’t fit. We just want EMOTION with our sex.
All relationships are welcome, MF, MM, FF, MFM, FMF, FFF and beyond and gender fluidity, as well as alien gender expressions are welcome. Aliens must be sentient and adults in their species.
Your story can be contemporary or futuristic. We welcome any setting and especially encourage authors writing about non-Anglo or non-white cultures to submit.
The editor for TOUCH THE STARS is to be announced. We hope to publish in late 2015. Submission deadline is September 30, 2015.
Submit your stories to anthology (at) coveryourdreams (dot) net with the subject heading “Touch the Stars”.
Stories between 2000 and 10000 words accepted. DOUBLE SPACE YOUR ENTRY. Include your name, pen-name if any, email address, country of residence and your word count. Please edit carefully before submitting and include a one or two sentence summary.
There will be no payment but good karma, experience and publicity – sorry, this is for charity! The charity for this Anthology is to be announced.
Authors will retain rights to their stories but be asked to not publish elsewhere for six months from publication of the anthology. Previously published stories that author retain rights to are welcome, but please let us know.
Published and unpublished authors are welcome. Authors from under represented groups and/or writing about under-represented characters are especially encouraged to submit.
