Purple Horn Press
http://www.purplehornpress.com
Genres:  Sci fi, fantasy, paranormal, horror. We are a romance publisher, and stories must feature a dominant romantic plot as a central element of the story.
Orientation/Relationships: We have an acknowledged gay/bi male focus. That means most of our stories are going to be M/M or M/M/M. But as an LGBT press, there’s an alphabet soup that covers way more than simple gay/bi male. Make it a good story, make it a queer story. If you don’t submit it, we can’t consider it.

  1. One, I would appreciate it if you’d spell it out Less Than Three Press. That’s how it’s written on the website.

    Two, we accept all genres. Contemporary, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Paranormal, etc. All heat levels. All pairing types except cis-het.

    I’m not sure why it doesn’t list paranormal, given we have that category on the website. And we’ve never, to my knowledge, put a limit on the kind of sci-fi we accept.

    Thank you,
    Megan

    • Thanks, Megan – just updated the info. I think one of your writers told us about LT3 – so that may be where the info came from. :)

  2. I have self-published my sci-fi trilogy which has a compelling aspect of gender contemplation for the reader. Having self-published, have I disqualified my books for consideration by publishing houses?
