This blog is mostly what I get up to outside of my work at LT3, though you'll see mentions of that from time to time.

NEW IN AUDIOBOOK: DREAMER AND A SHADOW OF A DREAM

You can now pick up Dreamer by Julia Alaric and A Shadow of a Dream by Isabella Carter in audio!

Dreamer by Julia Alaric:

Jonah considers himself the most boring person in existence. Even his dreams are boring; the most exciting dream he’s ever had involved folding laundry. But then, in the middle of a dream about eating cereal, everything changes. A faint memory of an unseen visitor, impressions that vanish upon waking, become dreams that leave Jonah exhausted, afraid, and determined to figure out who is turning his boring dreams into a terrifying game of cat and mouse…

A Shadow of a Dream by Isabella Carter:

Solving a murder is never an easy matter, even when circumstances are ideal. For Basil, circumstances are far from ideal. The murder is far more complicated than at first it seems, and before he can even begin to solve it Basil must contend with a council that refuses to listen to him, a partner he despises, and a thief who is a temptation that Basil cannot seem to resist…

Open Calls for Submission

Hey everyone!

I’m an LGBT writer in the LGBT fiction community. I know there are tons of aspiring writers out there who have LGBT characters. There are also so many LGBT people out there who want a book written with an LGBT protagonist which doesn’t revolve around the fact they’re LGBT, who are tired of all those overdone tropes about coming out and being accepted.

Here are some LGBT publishers that have open calls for submission:

Dreamspinner Press

Harmony Ink Press

Less Than Three Press

Torquere Press

Storm Moon Press

Riptide Publishing

New and aspiring authors, here’s a short list of LGBT publishers who are looking for stories in any genre, not just contemporary or romance.

Happy writing (and reading)

SIGNAL BOOST with a slight caveat -

I’m not really huge on publishing & the rights thereof, but Storm Moon Press says “Authors will receive a single payment for their story based on length at a rate of $0.0075 per word. No other royalties will be paid.” for 10k-20k word stories - in other words, will pay you $75-150 with no royalties.

Compare this to other publishers on this list - Riptide pays 40% royalties for its books, Dreamspinner a $200-1000 advance plus royalties,  Harmony Ink pays $500-1,000 plus royalties.

The other two, Torquere Press pays royalties the first time and might pay a flat fee as well the next time they publish you, and from what I can tell LT3/<3 pays something like royalties or maybe a $100-200 flat fee. 

Be sure to do your research when submitting something! And decide for yourself what you’re looking for in being published - most of these are small press publishers that probably don’t have that big of a budget. But you have rights as an author too.

To clarify, LT3 pays royalties as follows:  

- 40% of the cover price on ebook sales through our Book Market

- 35% of the gross we receive from 3rd-party vendors (Amazon, All Romance, Kobo, etc)

- 20% of the cover price for all print sales.

- 5 - 10% of the gross subscription sales if the book is part of LT3’s Serial Subscription.

The $100 - $200 flat fee is paid out for short stories that are part of an anthology.

And like the show-off he is, he can’t resist another go - one taste of the silver screen is never enough. On August 23rd the new Doctor will begin his new adventures on BBC One and in cinemas all over the world. Movie-land beware - Capaldi is coming to get you!” [x]

I’ve been itching to share this for a while now. My last project was Cinderella, and since there’s already one version of Cinderella for Far Faria, I decided to do a Filipino version version just to mix it up.

This scene was improvised, so ludacris’ reaction is genuine and dwayne didn’t have a line after tyrese said his.
