Stories of Intergalactic and Fantastical Hoochies wanted for Anthology

Yep, you heard it right.  An anthology about the “World’s Oldest Profession” is looking for submissions.  Stories need to have a genre twist to them—science fiction, fantasy, something that makes them a bit different.  The anthology is “Ladies of Trade Town” and the Press is a good one.  

 

For more info, go HERE   According to the Website:

The stories selected for this anthology will build on that varied background to tell well-crafted tales of the women and men – and other sentient beings – who “ply the trade” in a variety of times and settings. I’m looking for original science fiction, fantasy, and related genre short stories that entertain and play to the imagination of the reader. Show me something I haven’t seen, read, or written. (For examples of that last, see “Lady Blaze” in Roby James’ Warrior Wisewoman 2  and the title cut of the filk CD that gives this volume its name.) Humor, characters of all orientations and gender-identities, and new writers all welcome.

Despite the theme, I am *not* looking for porn, erotica, or gore-soaked horror. Absolutely no child abuse, incest, or non-consensual situations. Also not looking for poetry, fanfic or proselytizing either for or against the theme.Vekma

STORY LENGTH:: between 3,000 – 10,000 words. Mostly looking for stories in the 5,000 – 6,000 word range, but I’d like to have a few stories on the upper and lower ends in the mix. The upper limit is firm for unsolicited stories.

PAYMENT: $0.02 a word on acceptance of completed anthology manuscript by the Publisher, as an advance against pro-rata share of the royalties after earnout, plus one contributor copy.

READING PERIOD: Opens January 5, 2010, closes June 9, 2010. Manuscripts received before or after this period will be discarded unread, unless prior arrangements have been made otherwise.

    having much experience in this field, I’ll try to see if I can put something out there for you to read.

    Haha. Not me, not me. Send to the Website above—“Ladies of Trade Town”….they’ll love the “been there, done that” feeling.
