Legendary, an anthology of urban legend romance, is open to submissions today. To celebrate we thought you might like a peek at what is on editor Laura Harvey’s wishlist 🙂
I love Things That Go Bump In The Night, and I can’t wait for some new re-tellings of classic thrillers! For the “urban legends” component, I love a good psychological scare over a slasher, so I’m looking for stories truer to their just-don’t-open-that-DOOR! legendary natures than their oh-my-gawd-it’s-a-chainsaw! counterparts. I love the dark and gothic, so finding something Lovecraftian in my inbox would be delightful! However, I’m also open to innovative re-imaginings: why not a fantasy, steampunk, or science fiction setting? Bloody Mary in space, with all those reflective surfaces? Man With A Hook on an airship? As long as there’s a recognizable urban legend at play, I’m game!I like my romances smart, strong, and sexy. Hefty doses of snark are a plus. Romantic leads can be dark, broody, angsty alphas (though I also have a soft spot for nerds), but it better be clear that their love interest isn’t to be trifled with. Those who adopt an “I’ll protect you, little lady” attitude should get knifed in an alley. All heat levels accepted, though I’d love to see some kink. M/F, M/M, F/F, and multiple pairings accepted.
