Flesh to Flesh

Strebor Books/Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster, is accepting submissions for Flesh to Flesh (tentative title), a gay erotic anthology that will be edited by Lee Hayes and published in fall 2007 or early 2008. This anthology is an opportunity for up-and-coming writers to gain national exposure as the anthology will be available in all major bookstores.

Stories must be erotic and if you have no idea what my idea of erotica is, I suggest reading Chocolate Flava, edited by Zane. We are not looking for stories with weak, sugar-coated sex. Nor am I looking for stories that are nothing but fluff. There must be a storyline and characters
readers can get into. Stories cannot be degrading to either sex. In fact, they should empower the reader to discover sexual liberation.

Selected authors will be paid a one time fee of $100 and receive 5 complimentary copies of the anthology. Stories must be between 3,000 and 5,000 words. The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2006.

All submissions must be sent to:

Strebor Books International
PO Box 6505
Largo, MD 20792
