Forwarded with Permission:Call for Submissions: 2009 Firemen Series: Hearts Afire
Phase two of the Call for Hearts Afire submissions is now open!
What is it about Firemen that gets our mojo burning? Is it their hard bodies, taut muscles, and unending strength and courage? Their willingness to risk their lives for us and our loved ones? Or the super sexy way they handle their hoses? How about all of the above?
Liquid Silver Books is publishing a 12-book duet series throughout 2009. Each month we will publish a Fireman duet consisting of two novellas and two authors.
This series is open to any genre, but must have a firefighter as a central character, male or female. We will be accepting submissions in both our Liquid and Molten heat levels, and each duet will be compiled of novellas within the same heat level.

Previously published works or works currently part of a series will not be considered. All submissions must be exclusive to Liquid Silver Books; if we decline your submission; you are free to submit elsewhere. A total of 24 novellas will be accepted for this series.

Length: 20k – 30K
Genre: Any, must feature firefighters.
* Liquid Silver - We are looking for the build up of passion, the explosion of a sexual relationship between a man and woman and not just a story with one sex scene after another. We are looking for the traditional "happy ever after" and the commitment of the man and woman involved. We want to see strong stories, stories which could stand on their own if the sex was omitted. However, by the addition of explicit sex throughout the book, the entire work then takes on a titillating aura from beginning to end. The sex must carry the story along and not just be included as though it was an afterthought in order to submit it.
* Molten Silver - Liquid Silver Books is known for publishing classy, hot, distinctive erotic romances. In our Molten Line, our stories rise to a hotter, steamier level. We're looking for the naughty, the boundary-pushing, the "holy crap, that was awesome." Stories that include BDSM, multiple partners, same-sex loving, anal play, or anything else that tickles your fancy. Just make sure to give us a happily ever after (or, happy for now) ending.
Please refer to our submission guidelines
