*sigh* Because I’m not really happy unless I am working myself to death, you know?
So, I had an idea today of the project that I want to do after I finish The Fauxpocalypse Project. I have a working title of As The Miller Told His Tale: Stories of love and magic by men.
It kind of came together in my head as a consequence of a couple of good discussions about love and sex that I took part in over the weekend, plus seeing on my Facebook feed two calls for submissions for collections of genre fiction from women authors and an ad for a completed collection of genre fiction by women authors.
It occurred to me that I can’t recall ever seeing a collection that was specifically of fiction by men, and it also occurred to me that I can’t recall seeing much written in the Paranormal/Fantasy Romance genre by men.
So after I have wrapped up Fauxpocalypse I’ll see if I can put out a call for romantic short stories featuring magic written by men and see what happens. It may completely fail to thrive, I don’t know. But I figure it’s worth a shot.
I will probably be looking at mid-September to open it up for submissions–the rest of this month and a good chunk of August my free time has already been spoken for, and then work goes nuts as the
little monsters students return to campus.
Anyway, I wanted to see what people thought of the idea. Is this something that men would want to be a part of? Is it something that readers of any sex would want to read?
