Call For Submissions

Editor: Delilah Devlin
Deadline: April 15, 2017

PIRATES is open to all authors.

Editor/Author Delilah Devlin is looking for stories for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled PIRATES: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY.

PIRATES: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY will seek stories that satisfy the reader who craves adventures on the high seas or outer space! Following the successful releases of CONQUESTS and ROGUES, Delilah’s ready to get to work on her next delectable anthology—this one filled with stories about roguish pirates. They can be traditional, Regency-era historical pirates or have some fun. She will consider pirates in space, pirates in the China sea, Pirates in the Gulf of Hormuz! She will accept contemporary, historical, science fiction or paranormal, and she won’t be picky about whether the stories are hetero, LGBT, ménage... Basically, you, the author, can go anywhere your imagination takes you so long as 1) pirates are involved, and 2) the story is a romance, and 3) you have a bad boy somewhere in the pages! Should you write that LGBT story, consider making the couple’s adversary a roguish pirate.

The anthology will be sold at a low price—Delilah’s intent is exposure for you and your writing. The more readers reached, the better! You will retain the rights to your story, so that at a later date you can republish your stories individually.

She’s seeking hot and inventive stories from authors with unique voices, and above all, she’s looking to be seduced by tales filled with vivid imagery and passion.

Published authors with an established world may use that setting for their original short story.

This is erotic romance, so don’t hold back on the heat. Stories can be vanilla or filled with kink, but don’t miss describing the romantic connection between strong-willed individuals learning to trust and love one another. A deep sensuality should linger in every word. Keep in mind there must be a romantic element with a happy-for-now or happy-ever-after ending. Strong plots, engaging characters, and unique twists are the ultimate goal. Please no reprints. Delilah is seeking original stories.

How to submit: Prepare your 2,500 to 5,000 words story in a double-spaced, Arial, 12 point, black font Word document (.doc, NOT.docx) OR rich text format (.rtf), with pages numbered. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (regular double spacing; do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). U.S. grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) is required.

In your document at the top left of the first page, include your legal name (and pseudonym, if applicable), mailing address, email address, and 50 words or less bio, written in the third person, and send to boysbehavingbadlypirates@gmail.com. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you’d like to be credited as. Authors may submit up to 2 stories. Delilah will respond no later than July 2017 with decisions.

Payment will be $50.00 USD ninety days after publication.
