About

Big Damn Heroines is a celebration of the plus-sized woman. Specifically, the plus-sized woman kicking ass. The media perception of the heroine is invariably thin, but women come in all shapes and sizes. This anthology aims to show that bigger women can be more than comic relief or the dumpy best friend. They can be a force to be reckoned with all on their own. And if they happen to find Mr./Ms. Right—or Mr./Ms. Right Now—along the way, that's just a bonus. We're looking for stories starring plus-sized heroines. Genre can be fantasy, urban fantasy, sci-fi, ____punk (steam-, diesel-, cyber-, etc), paranormal, or horror. The heroine must overcome some challenge, enemy, or obstacle by her own means, whether that be physical ability, mental acuity, or cunning guile. Some erotic content is required, but a well-plotted tale with a satisfying ending is paramount.
