veteratorianvillainy said: Okay, so I've got a question that I really hadn't anticipated ever asking (partially because I haven't written a m/f pairing in, like, a decade), but where do y'all fall on bisexual characters? Like, if it's explicitly clear that the characters are interested in more than one gender, is it still unacceptable (for submission) for them to end up as a cis M/F pairing? If so, would one (or both) of them being in a non M/F pairing during the book allow for the cis M/F end pairing?

As long as it’s explicitly clear that it’s bi M/F, we’re cool with it (and I just updated our submission guidelines to make that clearer). We don’t do het cisgender M/F. Bi and trans* M/F fall under the LGBTQ umbrella, which is what we publish (though as of yet we do not have any bi M/F in our catalog).

That said, most customers who come to LT3 for books are not looking for M/F, even bisexual M/F. We’d be willing to consider such a story, but you might do better subbing a bisexual M/F to a press that publishes cisgender het M/F alongside their LGBTQ books (such as Loose-Id, Totally Bound, Carina, Samhain, etc.*)

- Sasha

*This is not an endorsement of these presses, just a short list of presses we’re aware of that do both cisgender het M/F and also LGBTQ. There are more out there, and obviously do your own research before submitting to any press. :-)
