Call For Submissions

Like a Rolling Stone: Erotic Tales of Rock and Roll Fantasy (and science fiction)
Publisher: Circlet Press
Editor: H.B. Kurtzwilde
Deadline: December 1, 2013
Payment & Rights: First rights for inclusion in the ebook anthology for $25

Circlet Press seeks short stories for the latest in our anthology series of erotic science fiction & fantasy ebooks. Like a Rolling Stone will combine three of our favorite things in one book: rock and roll, erotica, and sf/f. And since sex and rock and roll already go hand in hand, that shouldn't be too difficult, eh?

Whether at the height of stardom or the deepest pits of ramen-only survival, the rock band stands as living gods, no matter the time period or pantheon. Can art and passion forge a family, or will those fires burn out everything that was good and right when the song first sounded? Every age needs heroes, and every hero needs his song. Like a Rolling Stone seeks to collect the stories of those who have knelt at the altar of rock, and found their calling.

In a junked out spaceship, the legend lives on. Deep in the heart of the elven forest, a rebel plays. Somewhere between the cyber static, a sound emerges to save a soul. A steam engine churns power to a mad invention, and melody never before heard by man cries out as a new age is born. The rock and roll adventure lives in every world, but all adventurers know it's dangerous to go alone.

MORE DETAILS ON SUBMITTING:

Length: Our preferred length is approximately 3500 to 7500 words, but we will consider the range from 2000 to 10,000 words.

How to submit: Send plain text, .rtf, or .doc via email to the submissions address of KurtzwildeEditor@gmail.com

About the editor: H.B. Kurtzwilde is the Lambda-award nominated author of Chocolatiers of the High Winds, along with many other fantastical and futuristic fictions.

Only email submissions are accepted. Submissions sent to other addresses/other editors at Circlet Press will not be considered. Standard manuscript formatting rules apply even though sending as an attachment (MS Word .doc or .rtf preferred). Please note that this means your name, address, and email contact must appear on the manuscript itself and not simply in your email message. (If you're not sure what a standard short story submission format should look like, Google is your friend.)

No simultaneous submissions (that is, don't also send your story elsewhere at the same time, and don't send it to multiple Circlet editors, either), and no multiple submissions to the same book. One story per author per anthology, thanks.

All stories must include explicit sexuality and erotic focus. Romantic content is welcome, but in a short story remember to keep the details on the action and its effects on the main character's internal point of view. We favor a strong, singular narrative voice (no 'head hopping' or swapping between different character's points of view within a scene). For more details on our editorial preferences, see the general submission guidelines on circlet.com. We highly recommend reading the guidelines, especially the "do not send" list, to increase your chances of sending us something we'll love. Try to avoid cliches. Fresh and direct language is preferred to overly euphemistic. Sex-positive, please, no rape/nonconsensuality/necrophilia or other purposefully gross topics. We do not publish horror.

Originals only, no reprints. We purchase first rights for inclusion in the ebook anthology for $25, with the additional rights to a print edition later which would also be paid $25 if a print edition happens. Authors retain the rights to the individual stories; Circlet exercises rights to the anthology as a whole.
