Call for Submissions: Secrets, Lies and Double Lies

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Secrets, Lies and Double Lives

From superheroes to secret submissives, closeted lesbians to corporate spies, we’re fascinated with false faces and the people who wear them. What are they hiding and why? What lengths will they go to to protect their secrets? What happens when they’re discovered or their two worlds collide?

Is he a shy and unassuming Clark Kent by day, hunky Superman by night? A Senator who enjoys an evening out in drag? A tough as nails female detective undercover as submissive? A pacifist dodging a draft by pretending to be a woman? A vampire working as a nurse for access to blood supplies? Contemporary, science fiction, paranormal, fantasy, historical, steampunk—you decide.
