by STARbooks Press:
Deadline: April 01,
hoods, criminals, cops, guards, wardens and jailhouse lovers are alive
and well at Starbooks Press.
This book will be about those men who find themselves on the wrong side
of the law, who are locked in a cell with one or more hot men, and who
satisfy their needs the only way cellmates know how. Sometimes, a hot
guard or warden gets in on the action.
I am seeking well-written stories that are erotic, not pornographic. I
am interested in muscle men, twinks, everyday Joes, cops, guards and wardens,
along with other men who end up doing behind bars what they never would
have considered on the outside. These men end up in small town jails,
county lock-ups, state prisons and maximum security facilities. They spend
24 hours a day in the company of dangerous men and even the few who are
less dangerous. Whichever they are, they only seek a release for their
pent up sexual desires. I am seeking real stories in which sex derives
naturally and logically from the characters and from the story. I want
well-developed characters, plots, situations, settings, and internal consistency.
Humor is greatly appreciated as these characters are meant to have fun
and enjoy themselves. However, we do ask that you do not include extremely
violent rape, beating or murder scenes.
to query me about the thinking you may have about a story for this anthology

your work will speak for itself. If your query is accepted, I will be
in contact with you about submitting the complete work. The end product
should be no more than 8 pages of single spaced 12 pt. type. Be sure your
query has been proofed and edited. Sloppy submissions and poorly written
