Freya’s Bower looking for m/m stories
I got this from one of my egroups:
Freya’s Bower invites you to submit your short stories with mm content for an all mm anthology. Any genre story: fantasy, western, contemporary, science fiction,horror, historical. We’d like to have a nice mix of genres for this anth.
Stories should be between 6,000 to 10,000 words, but we will consider manuscripts a little shorter or a little longer. For submission guidelines as to what Freya’s Bower will accept as story content, please visit

All submissions must include:
1. your full name, a pseudonym if used,
2. a brief synopsis, subject or genre,
3. the story attached
4. ‘Submission to mm anthology’ must be in the subject line,
5. Mail submissions and/or direct queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions for the anthology closes December31, 2007. Deadline may be extended.
I’ve extensively edited 90% proof and sent it off. That was the story which was rejected with the nice rejection letter quoted in ‘Sweet rejection’. After re-doing it according to all the advice, it now has no run on sentences, and is 2,000 words shorter. I don’t like it as much any more, though. If it doesn’t get through this one, I think I’ll retire it as a bad job and just write something new instead 🙂
