Special Call for Submissions

We're still looking for stories for our upcoming steampunk anth. In the meantime author AJ Bray has a project with Phaze Books for next year:

Call: Straight, GLBT, Vanilla, and Kinky stories of Disabled Sensuality
Edited by: A.J. Bray
Title: TouchAble
Format: E-book, possibly print
Publisher: Phaze Books
Projected release date: mid-June 2010

Passion knows no boundaries. Nothing, not even disability, can bar the way to a hot, sexual interlude if the moment is right, ­and that's what I aim to showcase in the upcoming anthology, TouchAble.

I'm seeking literate, well-written stories of an erotic nature with a central character that has a disability. Wanted are pieces that empower and demonstrate the sensual abilities of those who are mobility, visually, speech, or hearing impaired. Not desired are stories that fetishize or
marginalize individuals in the disabled community or that contain the standard taboos (incest, bestiality, non-consensual sex, snuff, bloodplay, underage sex (even in flashbacks), or anything involving toilet functions).

Special preference will be given to tales crafted by writers with a disability from their own perspective. This is your chance to tell the world what you love, how you love, and who you love.
Deadline: 1 February 2010

Editor receives one-time electronic and print rights to works, and contributor receives a one-time payment of $50 after publication for selected stories, plus one contributor's copy per format (e-book initially, and paperback if chosen for print publication)

To submit stories with fewer than 12,000 words, send them in RTF format to touchablebook (at) gmail (dot) com.
