Open Submissions: Serial Fiction Line

Fairy Tales submissions

LT3 is actively seeking LGBTQ submissions for our popular serial fiction line. LT3’s serial fiction runs 4-6 stories at a time, with biweekly updates (2-3 stories update on week 1 and the other 2-3 stories update on week 2, ad nauseum). In particular, we’re looking for stories that:

  • Are at least 35,000 (ideally 50,000) word range, but no longer than 200,000 words long. (Note: fairy tale serials can be shorter; we are looking for 10k-50k length for fairy tales.)
  • Be suited to being broken down to 4,000-5,000 word sections.
  • Be extremely engaging. Serials run for months at a time and should keep the reader interested for those months.
  • Be complete. LT3 does not run incomplete stories as serials.

Stories can be any genre and any flavor of LGBTQ. Once a title finishes its serial run, it’s moved to the LT3 Book Market to be sold as an ebook (and paperback if long enough).

So what do you get for serial stories? Well, for general serial stories, you get…

  • 10% of gross subscription sales from while your serial is running. (LT3 has over 500 regular serial subscribers.)
  • Regular ebook and paperback royalties when your book is moved to the LT3 Book Market. (40% royalty through LT3, 35% through third-party distributors, 20% for paperbacks)

Fairy tale serials are slightly different, as we accept shorter stories and compile them together to sell them as an anthology once we compile enough for a print volume. (See: Fairytales Slashed.) If you’re running a fairy tale serial with us, you get:

  • One-time payment of $100
  • 5% of gross subscription sales while your fairy tale is running.
  • Author copies of the ebook and paperback versions of the anthology your book is included in.

Interested? Check out LT3’s submission page for all details, and if you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

Print Sales

To clear out stock with older covers, LT3 is offering the paperback versions of The Missing Butterfly by Megan Derr and Stolen Hearts by Sasha L. Miller for 50% off. Supplies are limited, so get your copies while you can!

Swords, Sorcery, and Sundry

A wizard, a soldier, and an assassin walk into a bar…

Soldier Ashe would like to enjoy her evening, and not have it ruined by trouble. Assassin Niklas wishes they had both minded their own business and not made his bad night worse.

The bar they accidentally burn down is only the beginning, and they quickly learn that if they are to survive their penchant for trouble, teamwork will get them farther than standing alone.

Deadline Approaching: Damsels In Distress

Damsels In Distress

The deadline for LT3’s lesbian collection call, Damsels in Distress is May 31, 2014! Get your F/F (or F/F/F, etc.) stories in before the end of May!

Damsels in Distress — An F/F Collection — How does a damsel handle a dangerous situation? That depends on the damsel. Some use swords. Others words. Some will fight their way, and others seduce. Some stand their ground and others judge it more prudent to run. The one thing they don’t do is sit around and wait for someone else to solve their problems and claim them as a prize. Less Than Three Press invites you to submit stories of women who can find their own way out of trouble.

Now Available! Won’t Back Down

Won't Back Down

MMA. Jousting Knights. Dueling swordsman. Gladiators. They do it for the money, for the love, and the necessity. They aren’t afraid of bruises, blood, and broken bones. Less Than Three Press presents a collection of stories about people who won’t back down even when the whole world seems stacked against them.

Heart’s Tournament by Mell Eight—Torn apart by the guilds vying for control of the city, twin brothers Keel and Saar must learn to fight, and win, if they hope to reunite—but winning might be exactly what tears them apart forever.

Note: This story contains twincest.

Champion by Andrea Speed—Kell is the first Human heavyweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting League of the Unified Worlds, where Humans are considered the lowest of the low. His presence could make a difference for his race, especially with his lover contending for featherweight champion—if they survive.

Canis Project by Kish Swanson—There is no one Liam loves more than his twin brother Alex. In the eyes of society, they probably love each other too much, but that’s never stopped them. When Alex is brutally taken, however, it does stop the police from investigating. Then a stranger offers Liam a chance for revenge against the genetically-engineered monsters who murdered his brother…

Note: This story contains twincest.

Experiment Number Six by Mina MacLeod—When his mission goes sideways, sniper Jason Slate wakes up in a strange hospital, drugged out of his mind, and captive of a shrewd terrorist organization. He’s rescued by the military and placed in the care of Eric Archer, a warrant officer charged with helping him recover. But did the terrorists lose Jason… or let him go?

Knight & Novice by Cassandra Pierce—Renulf’s tedious days of copying manuscripts is interrupted by two unlikely visitors to the Sanctuary: a rampaging, troll-like thief, and the knight who slays him. In thanks for his assistance, Lord Bazel is invited to stay at the Sanctuary for a few days. But when night falls, he asks Renulf to secretly translate a strange manuscript…

Fight to Finish by Diana Sheridan—Maltroos has always been proud to be a Pledger and fight against other swordsmen for the amusement of the king. But he clings to the promise of his secret lover, Prince Saxtry, who vows that one day he will abolish the brutal duels. Then the king announces a Grand Competition—and that all fights will be to the death.

Rule Breaker by Archer Kay Leah—Gren has a very simple list of rules: no attachments, no loyalty, he’ll fight for anyone willing to pay. His only exception to the rule is Tracel, a healer who is also his casual lover. When she is taken hostage, however, Gren realizes he may have broken his rules, and he’ll have to break a few more to get her back.

A Little Magic by Annabelle Kitch—When Thrim is taken to the south, he believes he can sink no lower. The slavers took his dignity, the guards took his book of magic and the arena will take his life. Then an unexpected friendship earns Thrim a new enemy, who uses Thrim’s own magic to shrink him to the size of a rat and leave him even more helpless.

A Good Man by Caitlin Ricci—When Emory loses his job he’s afraid of what his boyfriend will think. A friend at the gym offers a solution: go one round in an upcoming fight and he’ll give Emory a job training the guys. But Emory hasn’t been in the ring for years, and getting back into fighting won’t make his boyfriend any happier than the lost job.

Gladiatrix by S.S. Skye—When Daelan is sold to the kingdom to pay off her father’s debts, she knows she is bound for the Games—and not likely to last long. When she arrives, however, she unexpectedly finds she has a patron who seems determined that Daelan come out of the Games alive…

Feint of Heart by Freddie Milano—For the past six years, Cal has been trying to gain the attention of Sir Taren Veretti outside of training sessions, but Taren refuses to see him as anything but a squire. He’s forced to set aside his amorous goals, however, when he stumbles across a plot that could ruin Veretti and everything they’ve worked for.

Chasing Coyote by August Aimes—Jove has been chasing his quarry for more than a year, but infamous thief and magic worker Coyote always manages to stay one step ahead—until suddenly he isn’t, and Jove is way more tangled up than he ever wanted, in ways he never expected…

Won't Back Down

MMA. Jousting Knights. Dueling swordsman. Gladiators. They do it for the money, for the love, and the necessity. They aren’t afraid of bruises, blood, and broken bones. Less Than Three Press presents a collection of stories about people who won’t back down even when the whole world seems stacked against them.

Heart’s Tournament by Mell Eight—Torn apart by the guilds vying for control of the city, twin brothers Keel and Saar must learn to fight, and win, if they hope to reunite—but winning might be exactly what tears them apart forever.

Note: This story contains twincest.

Champion by Andrea Speed—Kell is the first Human heavyweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting League of the Unified Worlds, where Humans are considered the lowest of the low. His presence could make a difference for his race, especially with his lover contending for featherweight champion—if they survive.

Canis Project by Kish Swanson—There is no one Liam loves more than his twin brother Alex. In the eyes of society, they probably love each other too much, but that’s never stopped them. When Alex is brutally taken, however, it does stop the police from investigating. Then a stranger offers Liam a chance for revenge against the genetically-engineered monsters who murdered his brother…

Note: This story contains twincest.

Experiment Number Six by Mina MacLeod—When his mission goes sideways, sniper Jason Slate wakes up in a strange hospital, drugged out of his mind, and captive of a shrewd terrorist organization. He’s rescued by the military and placed in the care of Eric Archer, a warrant officer charged with helping him recover. But did the terrorists lose Jason… or let him go?

Knight & Novice by Cassandra Pierce—Renulf’s tedious days of copying manuscripts is interrupted by two unlikely visitors to the Sanctuary: a rampaging, troll-like thief, and the knight who slays him. In thanks for his assistance, Lord Bazel is invited to stay at the Sanctuary for a few days. But when night falls, he asks Renulf to secretly translate a strange manuscript…

Fight to Finish by Diana Sheridan—Maltroos has always been proud to be a Pledger and fight against other swordsmen for the amusement of the king. But he clings to the promise of his secret lover, Prince Saxtry, who vows that one day he will abolish the brutal duels. Then the king announces a Grand Competition—and that all fights will be to the death.

Rule Breaker by Archer Kay Leah—Gren has a very simple list of rules: no attachments, no loyalty, he’ll fight for anyone willing to pay. His only exception to the rule is Tracel, a healer who is also his casual lover. When she is taken hostage, however, Gren realizes he may have broken his rules, and he’ll have to break a few more to get her back.

A Little Magic by Annabelle Kitch—When Thrim is taken to the south, he believes he can sink no lower. The slavers took his dignity, the guards took his book of magic and the arena will take his life. Then an unexpected friendship earns Thrim a new enemy, who uses Thrim’s own magic to shrink him to the size of a rat and leave him even more helpless.

A Good Man by Caitlin Ricci—When Emory loses his job he’s afraid of what his boyfriend will think. A friend at the gym offers a solution: go one round in an upcoming fight and he’ll give Emory a job training the guys. But Emory hasn’t been in the ring for years, and getting back into fighting won’t make his boyfriend any happier than the lost job.

Gladiatrix by S.S. Skye—When Daelan is sold to the kingdom to pay off her father’s debts, she knows she is bound for the Games—and not likely to last long. When she arrives, however, she unexpectedly finds she has a patron who seems determined that Daelan come out of the Games alive…

Feint of Heart by Freddie Milano—For the past six years, Cal has been trying to gain the attention of Sir Taren Veretti outside of training sessions, but Taren refuses to see him as anything but a squire. He’s forced to set aside his amorous goals, however, when he stumbles across a plot that could ruin Veretti and everything they’ve worked for.

Honour audiobook

Honour by A.F. Henley

Recently docked after a voyage abroad, Emmett wants only to find a warm bed and good food, for himself and the cabin boy he’s taken into his care. Those plans are impeded, however, by an altercation in the streets—with a man he realizes too late is England’s heir to the throne, Prince Andrewe.

When the encounter unexpectedly leads to a position in the royal household attending the prince, Emmett is not certain what to think. On one hand, it’s a reliable income and ensures the safety of his charge. On the other, it’s neither the life Emmett knows, nor an environment that he’s comfortable in. Left to learn his lessons the hard way, Emmett spends his days contending with a spoiled, infuriating prince who leaves him in a constant tangle of emotions.

Then he begins to hear whispers of treason and must make a choice: defend Prince Andrewe, or betray him.

After all, what else is there for him to worry about? Aside from his hair and his clothes, not much. He’s hot, and rest assured no one knows it better than him. He’s also used to getting what he wants—until he meets Felipe Navarro.

Fee Navarro has everything he needs: a great IT job, a nice apartment, and all the high-tech toys his geeky heart could ever want. He doesn’t do casual, and he knows guys like Ash are nothing but. Ash may burn hot for Fee, but Fee isn’t willing to take a chance on a vain, little party boy with too many tats and an oversized ego. He wants someone to share his life with, and he won’t settle for anything less. Too bad Ash has never been the type to give up easily.

His resentment must be set aside, however, when evil is found lurking far too close to the castle—an evil that has many pieces, controlled by someone they cannot find and who always seems one step ahead of them. Someone who seems to think that demons are little more than toys …

With Pride is Book 2 of the Princes of the Blood series. Book 1, Of Last Resort, is also on sale for 28% off until 8:00 p.m Eastern Time on April 15.

Body Option by Talya Andor

Body Option

For five years, Grant Badu has been part of a solid fighting team with the Gemini Suit called Trefoil Argent. Together, they fly and fight so effectively, their combat record so impressive, that they’ve become informally known as the Infallible Duo.

When a case containing classified military innovations is stolen and shot down in the foothills of disputed border territory, Grant and Argent are tapped for its swift recovery. But the mission requires pilot Argent to take on the one cybernetic option he’s been avoiding, for reasons even Grant doesn’t know.

Nessie dreams of escaping her sheltered life to become a mechanical engineer with mechas. But wanting and doing are two very different things, and outer confidence hides inner fears—until she meets Joy.

Fire and Soul by Siobhan Crosslin

Fire and Soul

As children, Temsha and his twin brother were kidnapped, their parents murdered, and forced to become sky force pilots for the notorious Lord Jheghda. Their younger brother was sold off to become an anam, a companion and power source for pilots, and if they are lucky they get to see him every three years.

After he nearly kills their latest anam, Temsha is at his limit. He is tired of being a slave, tired of worrying constantly about the brother he has not seen for six years, and tired of burning out anams. When they are assigned a new anam, Temsha tries to resist getting close, because one more loss will be the one that breaks him.

Note: While there is no incest, the brothers do share a lover.

During a raid on the Diamondbacks, a notorious and dangerous gang tearing up the city, everything goes sideways and it’s Gabe who comes out the worse for it. Furious, devastated, Dave is determined to have revenge on the men who nearly killed Gabe.

After a horrific accident during a mecha showcase event, Tarle is shunned by the robotics community and forced into hiding. Unable to abandon mecha entirely, he starts building a new robot in secret.

Starr is a porn star. He’s used to the open admiration of his fans and the derision of his detractors, but the bombing of his house is more than he can take. Desperate to escape, he runs away to a dead-end town at the edge of space, where he is taken in by Tarle.

Hiding away together, they find, is far more appealing than going it alone, but no one can hide forever, especially when there are people determined to find them.

On a return trip to Earth, Peter collapses from illness right as he touches down, the unwitting victim of the illegal actions of a scientist who was part of the Phobos Initiative.

Though the gamble succeeds, one of the leviathans vanishes with a valuable human, straining an already tenuous alliance. Her caretaker Nils needs to find her as quickly as possible to redeem himself before his superiors.

Then the treaty is stolen, and time is rapidly running out, and it will take all the ingenuity Axel can muster to prevent a war.

When he is dragged to a party by his brother, he comes face to face with the man who pioneered mechanical animation: Leon Gregory de la Marche VI, Marquis de la Marche. And he is not at all what Andrea expected.

After a horrific accident during a mecha showcase event, Tarle is shunned by the robotics community and forced into hiding. Unable to abandon mecha entirely, he starts building a new robot in secret.

Starr is a porn star. He’s used to the open admiration of his fans and the derision of his detractors, but the bombing of his house is more than he can take. Desperate to escape, he runs away to a dead-end town at the edge of space, where he is taken in by Tarle.
