Working Title: Nemesis
Premise: Sometimes great loves begin with great fury. These are such tales of passion and partnership that ignite somewhere closer to hate. Warriors on opposite ends of a battlefield align to oppose a greater evil. Sworn enemies become bound brothers for the greater good. Whatever it is that puts them at odds, it’s no match to the power of what binds them together.
Genres: Keep it speculative. Romance on some level is preferred, but not required—passion, emotion, fierce bonds are what we are looking for.
We’re also hoping to see a lot more #OwnVoices pieces, female authors, LGBTQA+ stories, but all are welcome to submit!
