Coming Together

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

Call for Submissions

Coming Together
Editor: Alessia Brio
Deadline: Submissions are continuously open for erotic stories > 5000 words of any flavor. Themed anthology calls usually accept shorter works. See the submissions page for a list of currently and/or continuously open calls:

Payment: Contributors will receive a final "as published" PDF copy of the professionally edited ebook. Print copies are not comped. Additional payment is in karma.
Contract: Coming Together uses a very basic publication agreement that seeks non-exclusive rights to publish. A template can be viewed at: Together sample publishing agreement.pdf

Since its debut in 2005, Coming Together has donated tens of thousands of dollars to dozens of charities. It has published numerous single- and multi-author anthologies in both ebook and print as well as novella-length single titles. All the work is donated, as is all the revenue. Coming Together has garnered much critical acclaim, won many awards, and set the publishing industry standard for "doing good while being bad."
In 2010, Coming Together became an independent publisher, eliminating a middleman and vastly increasing the amount of each sale that is ultimately donated to charity. Its publications are available online at all major bookstores, and its print offerings can be special ordered via any offline bookstore.
In 2014, Coming Together became a 501(c)(3) tax exempt voluntary nonprofit association. Contributions of cash, stories, and items for fundraising auction are now tax deductible in the United States. Donation receipts will be provided upon request.
Want to get involved? Coming Together's publishing focus is on stories of 5,000 to 20,000 words to release as individual ebooks under one of its many charity lines. Erotic fiction is preferred, but submissions in any genre will be considered. Volunteer editors and marketers are also welcome. Please query using the form located at the following URL, and thanks for your interest in erotic altruism!

About the Editor:  Take one part Appalachian redneck, one part aging wet dream, and one part filthy-minded wordsmith. Mix well and serve with chocolate-covered cherries. There you have the one and only Alessia Brio. In addition to serving as Coming Together's editor, Alessia writes all colors and flavors of erotica, from heterosexual to ménage to same sex, and from twisted to humorous to deeply touching. (Sometimes, usually by accident, it even qualifies as romance.) Her work has earned her critical acclaim in the form of three EPPIEs for Erotica (fine flickering hungers, Coming Together: Against the Odds, and Coming Together: Into the Light), Romantic Times Top Pick (Coming Together: For the Cure), and two Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Erotica (Squeeze Play and Coming Together: With Pride) in addition to a plethora of glowing online reviews.

Ms. Brio lives in the mountains near Pittsburgh, where she masquerades as a soccer mom. The Internet is both her office and her playground, and she can be found online at via publishing label, Purple Prosaic, in addition to Twitter and Facebook.
