Open Calls



Unto Tomorrow


What does the future hold? It's a question we want you to answer. These stories should have a modern day traveler who journeys to the future by way of a device. The device or mode of travel may be of the author's creation, but should have a detailed explanation, myth or legend attached to it. The plot must uphold the 'reason' for the traveler's journey whether or not they journey to the near future or distant future time.

  • Stories must have strong elements of futuristic/spec-fic fiction. They may include any plot from science fiction, fantasy, utopian/dystopian fiction, apocalyptic to post apocalyptic/new world order. These stories should include a fully developed plot with fully fleshed characters. The characters need not be likable, but must give the reader good cause to root for them. The device or vehicle may work both ways (journey to future then back to present), but it should be understood that a positive ending/HEA is preferred.
  • These stories may be any length from super-short to saga.
  • Stories for consideration can be either Mainline or Heat Line, but must follow our general submission guidelines. They can be either general fiction or romance. If romance, they may be any heat level.

  • Super-short and short stories must be submitted no later than December 30, 2009 for consideration in the 2010 print anthology. Novella lengths and above are considered for print publication in accordance with our 'mission statement'.


Legacy 2150

Our signature line of hard science fiction stories, they may explore any science fiction plot but should apply themselves to the guidelines of 'hard' science fiction. Fully developed worlds, spaceships, aliens, and fully-fleshed main characters with intriguing sci-fi plots that do not shy away from social issues, morality plays and all other aspects that make 'hard' sci-fi what it is should appear in the story. These are not watered down science fiction but all that made science fiction great.

  • Stories must include the elements of true hard science fiction. Detail to world building, whether a space ship or a distant planet is imperative. The plot must be attached to all intrinsic elements including the world, the characters, and the antagonist. Gadgets, gizmos and 'alien speak' should be well developed and have ready explanation if necessary.
  • Story length should be novelette length and up.
  • Stories for consideration can be either Mainline or Heat Line, but must follow our general submission guidelines. They can be either general fiction or romance. If romance, they may be any heat level.

Revenge is Sweet

A one night stand can be a good thing if it's with the right person. This line is explicitly designed for characters on the rebound and does revolve around that tiny bit of vengeance every lover scorned wishes to extract from a former lover/boyfriend/husband. These stories need not be just a 'one night stand', but they should stick firm to that instance of vengeance and the resolution of getting back on the proverbial 'horse that kicked' them.

  • Stories must have an integral aspect of revenge though it can be downplayed and diluted. The focus is on the injured party in these stories and how a chance meeting with a stranger can help them resolve emotional issues.
  • Story length super-short, short or novella length.
  • Stories for this line are in the Heat Line, and must follow the submission guidelines. They should be Carnal or Extreme. They may take place in any time period including historical or futuristic. An HEA or HEA for now is preferred.

A Letter from our Editor in Chief

Hello All,

Let me first welcome you to our blog, thank you for your time and ask for your patience as we roll toward our March 1st opening. You’d think over a year in development would have prepared my staff and I for just about anything – LOL. There’s always a tweak here and a tweedle there that pops up when you least expect it.

I wish I could say my experience in the publishing industry has been glamorous. It hasn’t. Exciting, yes. Hard work, you bet. Fulfilling, always. From my start with Asimov’s magazine to my work as an independently contracted editor, I’ve been all over the map. There were years when I wrote nothing but magazine articles, worked on a couple of ghost writing projects and sat around waiting for the mail. We all can’t be New York Time’s best sellers, and I was more than happy to just skip along, picking up work where I could and handling the projects that came my way.

Eirelander itself sprang from a frustration I acquired when I made the move to e-publishing. I do consider it the future of this industry, but when I actually became an e-published author, I naively expected it to resemble New York. I expected my work to be edited within an inch of its life, the cover art to have pertinence to the story and to work with professionals at all stages of the publishing process.

My first e-published novel, Northern Skye, went under contract with New Concepts Publishing nearly four years ago. Imagine my stunned dismay when my editor didn’t edit the story. I chalked that up to the ‘live and learn’ process. My second story with them, Night Beauty, was treated with similar respect. Since then, like my unglamorous years with New York, I’ve been all over the map.

My adventures in e-publisher have been varied and provided an overview of the field. One publisher folded. My experience with Cobblestone, Forbidden Publications, Whiskey Creek, and Whiskey Creek Torrid, has been a mixed bag with both positive and negative results. Ironically, the problems I did experience hearkened back to my own start in the magical world of publishing: the need for a well-edited story.

I went from one publisher to the other, and met several editors who could be great at their jobs if they were as invested in the story as I was, as invested in the story as I had been when I worked as an independent editor. I think this is where e-publishing lets an author down. A good novel takes months or longer to write. An author sacrifices time and puts heart and soul into each book. There’s no instant gratification here. If the author’s energy isn’t matched with an equal commitment by the publishing company, the result is a less-than-stellar release. Many an author has been disappointed by shoddy editing. Many a reader has tossed aside a book that could have been spectacular if only the editor cared as deeply as the author.

This got me thinking. The idea for Eirelander first popped up two years ago. Back then my life was running full-steam. Busy with ghost writing projects and working on contracts, while simultaneously running a mentoring group for aspiring authors and raising a family, my life was overflowing. Recent changes in my life gave me more time to breathe, to think, and to plan. The time had arrived to bring the dream of Eirelander to fruition. Where the tradition of old-style publishing met the innovative technology of the 21st Century.

The dream of every author is to see her or his book released. The commitment of Eirelander Publishing is to make those dreams come true.

Now, as we kick open the doors and let the sunshine in, I wanted to personally welcome you, and thank you all for your interest.

Remember, I’m always open to comments, questions or suggestions. Feel free to drop me a note at

Sincere regards,


Editor in Chief, Eirelander Publishing

The Seanchai

Pronounced *shanachie* or in our Editor in Chief's world, shenacheeay.

The seanchai were an important part of Ireland's history. These great tellers of the old tales involving history and lore dates back thousand of years. Unlike the scalea, who are modern storytellers and deal with contemporary or non-traditional themes, the seanchai were a revered part of the culture. They were revered for their talent and respected for the tradition.

They were welcomed into the rural farming homes during the long winters. Following this custom, Eirelander welcomes both its authors and readers.

Please, feel free to sit down and spend some time.

Sincere regards,

The Eirelander Staff
