That's only stated on the book submission guidelines, so for the anthoogies maybe one could query. Maybe for books they want to be easily (and cheaply) able to communicate with the writers by phone and land mail?

Or maybe they want to keep the competition down. A glance at the blurb for one of their books may give a hint of the quality of writing needed to reach their "prize" of inclusion in their publications:

a congealing mix of passion, brokenness and hope. The result is an empowered woman purely expressing from all aspects of her being.

Well, it's on their About page as well as right at the top of the anthology submission page.

Thanks, E, I'd missed that restriction. I'll note it on the market call.

Though, given that they don't even give authors a contrib copy, I don't think they'll be terribly high on anyone's submission list.

So that's what's become of "Nicole Foster." That nom was used by a succession of Alyson editors; Angela Brown was the one i worked with several times. She was fine then, but went briefly to Cleis and reputedly screwed up an antho, not taking care of some contracts or payments, so that the publisher had to straighten things out. That's why they didn't do any lesbian anthos besides BLE and BLR for a while.

Since Alyson is no more, I suppose someone might as well use the "Nicole Foster" byline. I don't know who had it after Angela, when Alyson Books mover to NY and she quit to stay in San Francisco.

I never had any problem with "Nicole", and I wouldn't want to discourage anyone from submitting to this if you have something all ready to send by next Monday (Jan. 10.) I don't really know why I'm going on about all this, except it never hurts to have all possible information and proceed accordingly.

It's good to have that info, Sacch.

My interpretion (being the cynic I am) is that someone is aware Nicole Foster is a generic editor nom of no particular identity, but the name has creds attached to it, so a complete novice has adopted it in order to appear as if she has a rep behind her.
