Queer romance press JMS Books wants LGBTQ+ romances in all subgenres for its Date Night book collection. The editors write:

We are looking for queer romance and erotic romance stories about dating. Whether it’s a first date with a Tinder hookup or a regular evening out for a couple in a committed relationship, take your reader along for the ride! Is the date the traditional dinner and a movie? Or maybe a moonlight walk followed by a picnic? Or maybe the date is less traditional, such as an afternoon spent scuba diving? Wherever your characters go, will the date end with a chaste kiss on the doorstep, or will there be an invitation to come in?
