Entangled Publishing Call For Submissions: Geeks Unite!

How cool is this? Entangled Publishing put out a call on December 3, 2011, for geek-centric stories (including science fiction romance):

Forget the meek—the geek shall inherit the earth, and it’s their turn to find out just how much love bytes. We love seeing beauty and brains combined, whether geeks are dealing with the tiresome rigors of tech support, arguing Star Wars vs. Star Trek, brewing coffee in beakers, pwning the opposing faction in an MMORPG, or single-handedly bringing down an unstoppable robot army. No longer shall geeks be pushed to the bottom of the social ladder. The geek revolution is now, and we want to hear their stories.

Entangled publishing seeks submissions for a 2012 geek collection on the Ever After line. Submissions must:

Be 20,000 to 40,000 words in length.
Contain strong romantic elements.
Involve a geek as a primary character, anything from a programmer to a starship engineer.

All heat levels will be accepted, but erotic elements must not be the main focus of the story.

Slowly but surely, non-erotic science fiction romance will have a place in this market!

Hurry, authors--the deadline to submit is January 15, 2012. See the post at Entangled's site for complete details. (Thanks to author Diane Dooley for the news).

Joyfully yours,
