Torquere Press Chasers

Chasers is a new line featuring a series of 3 or more stories, 10-20K long. So, if you have characters you want to revisit for more than one story, but isn't a traditional novel, this is the line for you.

Here are the specifics:

The stories must be gay or lesbian, must contain romance or erotic romance, and there must be at least 3 stories.

Genre fiction - paranormal, western, etc. - is welcomed.

Stories must fall in the 10-20K word count range.

Stories must be a series, not three random stories.

Upon submission, one story must be completed, the second story should be well-begun (2-3,000 words), and the third needs a synopsis.

This is a one-strike and you're out line. If you pitch us a Chaser and then do not deliver the manuscripts, you not be allowed to sub to the line again. No exceptions.

This is a royalty-paying line (30% on house-site sales, 20% on distributors sales) and we'll be contracting for 2 years electronic rights.

Each complete series will be eligible to be considered for our print line.

Send all submissions to submissions@torquerepress.com, as either a word file or rtf attachment, including in the body of the e-mail a cover letter giving a brief synopsis of the story and your contact information. Please see our general submission guidelines for our formatting and content suggestions. Feel free to query us at the above address with any questions.

Submission guidelines can be found here.
