Deadline: March 31, 2016
The Love of an Omega is open to all authors. Those new to JMS Books are encouraged to submit. Reprints will not be accepted unless they are not currently in print and the author holds exclusive rights to republish.
We’re looking for stories featuring the passionate alpha/omega dynamic between gay men. The stories may involve shifters (werewolves, cats, bears, etc.), or the characters may remain in human form, but they must express the hierarchical elements of an alpha/omega relationship. Betas and gammas may also appear, but the focus must be on the alpha/omega bond. MPreg is acceptable.
If you are unfamiliar this trope, please refer to the Wiki article located at Fanlore.org. NOTE: All submitted stories must be original fiction with original characters and cannot be fan fiction or derivative fiction of any fandom of any kind.
