LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings
I don’t do a lot of writing to prompts. Partly because I have so many stories already percolating inside me that I’d have to live to be 200 to write them all; partly, because my muse seldom cooperates. So when I saw a submission call requesting a specific sub-genre, my first thought was “that would be nice, but…”
Apparently, my muse also liked the idea of a paranormal/mythological FF story because once I figured out a few basic points, the story practically began writing itself.
(Side Note: my muse has been named Raven for a long time due to their love of—and capacity for distraction by—shiny things, but it’s a little weird to call them that right now, since the editor I’ve been working with lately is Raevyn. And yes, my Raven has a flair for the dramatic. ;))
A couple of years ago I started research for a story featuring a mythological creature from Japanese folklore. Before I got too far down that path, someone else in the MM Romance genre released a book with a similar premise. Even though our books would have been completely different in execution, Raven’s feathers got ruffled and they decided to focus on something else.
When I saw the call I thought a side-story from my paranormal world would fit nicely. My usual MO when starting something new is to ask a lot of “What if?” questions about whatever scrap of idea I have. So I did that, but out of nowhere (*lol* yes, Raven, from you) I thought: what if I wrote that story I’d abandoned, only with two women instead of two men? And what if, instead of an Erotic Romance, it was short and hot~maybe Erotica? That would make it a completely different story, yes? So that’s what I’m doing.
Any writers out there who are interested in writing FF (Bisexual/Lesbian) short fiction might want to check out the submission call here. I can’t wait to read the anthology!
