Submission call: Dreamspinner Press wants male-male BDSM romances Submit anytime; pays royalties

Male-male and gay romance publisher Dreamspinner Press is accepting manuscripts for its contemporary BDSM book line. The editors write:

Dreamspinner Press is looking for writers who excel at weaving love stories filled with multidimensional characters, steamy chemistry, and erotic romance. Submissions can fall into one of two classifications.

  • Light elements of BDSM including kink, toys, and bondage that entice, tantalize, and tease. These are playful, romance-driven stories that will tie readers up in anticipation and sensation.
  • Stronger depictions of the BDSM lifestyle and all the ups and downs that come with it. These characters crave seduction, passion, and play both in and out of bed. We are looking for realistic representations of BDSM and the D/s world you create.
