December will be a slow month on the publication front at Ladylit, so to make up for that we are proud and excited to announce the following call for submissions. Our Publisher Caroline Manchoulas is teaming up with her wife Harper Bliss to produce an anthology themed around summer holiday romance, set to come out in summer 2015. Do submit!
Summer Love: Lesbian Stories of Holiday Romance (working title)

We are looking for stories of lesbian love during the summer holiday. This could be a short holiday fling somewhere far away from home, or a moment of summer heat passion between a long lasting couple, or anything in between.
We welcome erotic content, but romance has to be the focus of the story.
Please note the usual no-nos apply: no incest / underage sex / rape / necrophilia / bestiality / scat. No poetry please.
Preferred length: 3000 – 6000 words
Unpublished stories only.
US English. Please submit a double-spaced Microsoft Word document, using a 12-point serif font, such as Georgia or Times New Roman. One inch margins. If using a pen name, include both real and pen name on the manuscript.
Send your story as a .doc or .rtf file attachment to submissions at ladylit dot com. Please include Summer Love and your story title in the subject line.
In the body of the email please include your legal name, pseudonym and a short bio.
Established authors welcomed, newcomers encouraged. We look forward to reading your work.
