Circlet Press is seeking sexy speculative fiction of the short short (micro) variety. What is speculative fiction? Examples of it include: science fiction, fantasy, utopias, dystopian, superhero, experimental, and occasionally supernatural though we prefer to keep our horror microfictions to the month of October.
We are looking for short literary erotic works to be featured on our website. We encourage diversity in our fiction. All gender pairings and orientations are welcome so long as everything is clearly consensual. Erotic microfictions should be between 250-1000 words and original works that are not available elsewhere. Please no fan fiction. Authors retain all rights and payment is $5 per story.
Multiple submissions are okay. Send submissions to email@example.com either in the body of the email or as a Word doc. Please include a short bio.
Seeking erotica stories in all genres that will hook the reader in with a fresh approach.
We’re currently looking for strong stories in the following genres:
- Urban Fantasy,
- Action Adventure,
Our books have always been targeted to women so your story must resonate with a female readership.
We are looking for over the top hot, but the story must be plot driven, the relationships believable. Ideally we ask for a HEA (Happy Ever After), but will consider a HFN (Happy For Now), if the story is a part of a series.
Our website – www.mmure.com – is a soon-to-launch site with female-focused erotic stories, podcasts, and art. The focus of the site is to curate inclusive, empowering, creative erotica for our viewers. We publish erotic works to our online website and welcome submissions of a diverse range of categories. All types of erotica are encouraged, although we will not accept anything of an overly violent, incestuous, or illegal nature.
How do I submit a story or artwork?
Email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name as the author/artist that you would like to be listed. That’s it!
Diverse books, stories, authors. Buzzwords in the writing community on Twitter and everywhere else these days. Agents, publishers, writers. So many people are talking about diversity.
But when you walk into a bookstore, or scan through Amazon or Smashwords, how many diverse books are you actually seeing put out by big presses? A few. Hopefully, more are coming.
Multifarious Press is an idea born from the desire to put diverse titles into the hands of people who want them.
MFP is committed to all forms of diversity. We want to build a list of titles in all sub-genres of diverse representation, especially own voices stories. We want the real voices, the ones who are going to resonate with others like you.
We want the stories that you had to write because you couldn’t find enough of them to read.
There are so many diverse authors, stories and readers out there, just waiting. Fantastic books that are getting shelved or worse, deleted; and diverse authors who are giving up their dreams because traditional publishing is incredibly slow on the uptake of diversity. Indie self-publishing is an incredibly successful business model for some diverse creators, but it isn’t for everyone. That’s why we’re here.
Publishing IS moving in the right direction, but one of the benefits an indie small-press has over larger ones is that we can get the books out faster and often, with better quality.
Take a look around the site, please make time to read the open letter, and if we can help get your story to the hands of readers who need it, follow our submissions process.
