Mischief Corner Books wants LGBTQ+ sci-fi romance novels and novellas for its Lost in the Stars book line. The editors write:
Space ships. Alternative realities with faster than light travel. Time machines. Worm holes. A world thriving after a nuclear holocaust. Our Lost in the Stars line is our beacon for the future, where science fiction gives us hope and a way forward in turbulent times. Innovation. Technology. The Stars. All of them give us hope for a better tomorrow. Sometimes, though, there are those who would want to strip us of everything we fought for. Our heroes push on despite the odds and overcome the obstacles laid out before them to obtain their desires and each other.

About Submission Calls
I post paying submission calls every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I focus on fiction calls, but occasionally post paying opportunities for creative nonfiction and poetry.
Browse more submission calls or tips for writers. You can sort calls by payment rate: token, semi-professional, professional, or royalties. To get a weekly roundup of all my posts for writers, sign up here.
I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with characters from underrepresented groups, including queer/LGBTQIA characters. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies, or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
