Please tell editors/publishers you read their guidelines on the
Erotica Readers & Writers Association Website

Call For Submissions

City Nights Series
Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing
Ongoing series, there is no deadline

Read other books in the series to see what we're looking for. Then . . .

• Pick a city somewhere in the world that hasn't been taken. You may wish to contact the managing editor to put a hold on your chosen city.

• Write a contemporary erotic romance that takes place within a 12-24 hour time frame.

•       Novella length only (aim for 25K)


Do not write the full story before submitting.

To submit: Write the first 5K words (to end of scene), then send it to us with your full, detailed synopsis, which includes the end of the story.

If we like what we see, we'll offer you a *promisory* -- That is, we'll ask you to complete the full story within 60 days, and providing the final manuscript is as good as the submission, then a contract could be forthcoming.

Follow the rest of the standard guidelines for submission, as outlined below.

• All stories must be contemporary erotic romance -- not erotica and not traditional romance. No 'f**k stories' and no sweet romance.

• Your story *must* have character development and be well-plotted, etc. Story is key, but ramp up the sex. (50-50 guideline) We want a 4 heat factor: Hot with lots of sex, some language OK, some kink OK, toys OK . . . if you're unsure, ask!

• YES -- Good character development, good plot, strong author voice, sex indoor or outdoor OK, love and an HEA not required, but HFN is required (happy for now) . . . think romance with more of sex.

• NO -- Heavy BDSM (no punching/hitting/slapping, no welts, no blood, no extreme pain, etc) . . . if you're unsure, ask. Please refer to our general no-nos on our standard submission guidelines: pedophilia, bestiality, incest, rape, necrophilia, urolagnia, erotic asphyxiation, race/gender intolerance, etc. You get the drift.

• Each book title will begin One Night In . . . example: One Night in Boise, One Night in Paris, One Night in Rome, etc.

• We are currently publishing one book per month.

• Note -- This is an ongoing series so there is no deadline to work by. Treat this submission like a standard submission but under these guidelines.
