Today I submitted my first manuscript under my alternate pen name of Allie A Burrow, so I guess my dalliance into the erotic romance is now 'official'. All because of this submission call from Breathless Press:Serviced Anthology: Our Serviced anthology is an ongoing submission call. Stories must be under 10k, have a heat rating of at least 3, and be original stories. There is no other theme besides having something to do with the army, military, navy, or air force as well as being romantic/erotic in nature. We will be doing two a year, one with a focus on m/m stories, the other on m/f stories. The anthology will consist of 10 stories each with M/F published Mar 8th, 2013.
At first, I thought nothing of it, but then my own editor at Breathless posted on Facebook to say they were short on submissions for the anthology and it got me thinking... wondering... could I actually step outside my comfort zone and write a suitable story? Once the challenge was set in my mind, almost like a dare, I knew I had to give it a go.
And I did it!
For One Night Only is a short story, coming in at 8,175 words and so confident am I that it will be published--if not as part of the Serviced anthology from Breathless Press, then with another publisher like Secret Cravings--I have gone ahead and purchased the domain 'allieaburrow.com'. Here's hoping it doesn't backfire on me, eh?
Now the anxious wait begins...
Any news will be posted here on my website and you can also keep up with all the latest updates via my Facebook page and my website.
Keep those fingers crossed for me!
