Deadline: 31 August 2012
JMS Books LLC is seeking submissions of short personal essays from gay writers on the subject of "the other man" for an upcoming anthology entitled The Other Man: 22 Writers Uncover the Truth about Sex, Deception, Love, and Betrayal.
Submissions should be non-fiction, previously unpublished, written in the first-person POV, and between 3,000 and 5,000 words in length. Shorter essays of exceptional merit will be considered. Essays should focus on the theme of "the other man" -- either being the other man, suffering the other man, or having their lives affected in some way by infidelity. The other man experience can also be a positive one that, in some way, makes a committed relationship even stronger after he passes through.
All types of stories are welcome, from light-hearted to serious. Authors selected to appear in the anthology will receive $100 for their submission as well as 1 free copy of the final book in both electronic and print formats. A portion of all profits (75%) will be donated to the IT GETS BETTER charity.
Established authors and newcomers alike are welcome.
Send completed essay and short bio (150 words) to the editor, Paul Alan Fahey, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Electronic submissions only. Final decisions will be made by the editor no later than November 2012. Publication is slated for May 2013 in both e-book and print formats.
Editor: Paul Alan Fahey
