Boxer Falls: a gaytime drama

What goes up always comes down.

Peek behind the fly of Boxer Falls, and see what mischief lurks in the quiet streets and secluded spots of a small New England town with a queer reputation. Around here, the family closets hold more than skeletons and the fights are strictly gloves-off. With folks this gorgeous, the feuds are bound to get ugly.

When the wealthy Cotten family decides to turn their country estate into a luxurious resort, the residents of Boxer Falls face an influx of affluent tourists who rub their sleepy little town in the worst ways. Lust, greed, betrayal, and ambition might just yank the town to its knees.

Tune in each week to get the latest on scorching affairs, family dysfunction, and secret desire.

Episode Format:

Boxer Falls is a weekly web serial in the mode of a romantic soap opera. Your episode of Boxer Falls should:

  • Feature a minimum of 4 of our recurring characters and the theme of the Goodreads Book of the month.

  • Reflect the classic four C’s of soapdom: character, continuity, credibility, conflict.

  • Be between 2000 to 5000 words. Think high drama, visual punch, and “in media res” for this. Several short, dynamic scenes will work better than one HUGE rambler.

  • Respect the facts established in prior episodes. If you have something drastic in mind, please talk to us first so we can make sure it fits into the season’s arc.

  • Honor standard romance industry exclusions: No sexual contact with anyone under 18. No bestiality or necrophilia.  No eroticized excrement, rape, torture, or murder.

  • Be formatted without indents, and HTML coded for paragraphs, italics, bold and underline for Goodreads . We can take care of this if you’d like.

  • End on a “Stay tuned!” cliffhanger & a few teasing questions to bring them back next week.
