Less Than Three Press (LT3), a small publisher of LGBTQ romance novels and anthologies, is seeking stories for a future anthology called, “A Fool for You–LGBTQIA–Clowns.”
The editor wants stories surrounding the theme of tricksters: Pick pocketers. Magicians. Motley fools. Enchanters. Demons. Even gods.
Stories of tricksters flourish in every culture, sometimes as jesters, sometimes as mischievous manipulators too deceiving for anyone’s good. They are always scheming, sometimes for good, sometimes for mischief, sometimes just to see what ensues.
Submit stories of tricksters and all the shenanigans they can contrive–and what transpires when they meet their match. Stories must end happily ever after (HEA) or happy for now (HFN). The editor is also open to sub-genres, including science fiction, mystery, contemporary, steampunk, and so on.
Word length: 10K-20K words per story.
Payment: $200 per story, plus contributor’s copies.
Deadline: March 31, 2017. Read submission guidelines at the publisher’s website.
