Gay or Trans Fiction - Riptide Publishing

Riptide Publishing
Call For Submissions

Secrets of the Sea

In keeping with Riptide’s nautical theme, we're looking for gay and trans speculative fiction to launch our Seven Seas line and celebrate our one-year anniversary.

Seduce us with mermaids or selkies. Suck us in with sirens. Trap us in the Bermuda Triangle and terrify us with ghost ships, or maybe take us on a tour of the lost city of Atlantis. Give us sailors, pirates, adventurers, coastguards, fishermen, tourists, or scientists. Take us on a sweeping trip across the seven seas or make us claustrophobic on an off-shore oil rig. Sail us off the edge of the map to where the dragons be (yar!). Whatever you do, show us the myths of the ocean.

Length: 25,000 to 35,000 words -OR- 50,000+ words

Genres: Paranormal, horror, historical, contemporary, near-future. Fantasy is a possibility, but be prepared to wow us.
