Stranded: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology

Editor: Delilah Devlin
Deadline: November 15, 2018

STRANDED is open to all authors.

Editor/Author Delilah Devlin (me!) is looking for stories for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled STRANDED:  A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY.

Why write a short story for this collection? Well, it’s certainly not about making a lot of money, so why do it at all? I have several thoughts…

Writing a short story for a call for submissions is a chance to flex your writing muscle! It can be a chance to experiment with a genre you’ve never written. If you’ve never written a story in first person but don’t want to begin by writing an entire novel using it, start short! For myself, I’ve written stories in new genres or with fresh themes that ended up being so much fun to write they’ve spawned entire series.

You have a deadline! I don’t know about you, but I have trouble keeping my butt in the chair without one!

It’s a promotional opportunity! If selected, you’ll be joined by 12-15 other authors for the launch, sharing your audiences and, hopefully, picking up new readers along the way. Having your story in the collection is another chance to be “seen.”

And remember, you retain the rights to your story, so you can republish it for individual sale or give it away to attract subscribers to your newsletter. You might even decide there’s more story to tell and expand it into a novel!

Here’s what I’m looking for…

STRANDED: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY will include stories that satisfy the reader who craves stories about women who find themselves in extremely challenging circumstances—vulnerable to the elements and/or to their rescuers! But don’t create damsels in distress who don’t have an inner core of resolve to save themselves. Heroines must be strong characters, otherwise, how will they attract and capture the love of a strong alpha hero?

I’m eager to work on my next delectable anthology—this one filled with stories about women who find themselves—STRANDED. Your heroine could be a castaway on a desert island, have her car break down in the mountains, be stranded in the ocean while snorkelling, crash land in the jungle or on an uninhabited planet… Don’t limit your imagination to these ideas! Have fun with the concept.

I’m open to any subgenre of erotic romance you want to write. I’ll accept contemporary, historical, science fiction, or paranormal stories, and I 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) the woman is in jeopardy, 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 or helpmate a roguish man—because, hey, I’m looking for men who behave badly.

The anthology will be sold at a low price—my 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.

I’m seeking hot and inventive stories from authors with unique voices, and above all, I’m 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. I want original stories.

How to submit: Prepare your 2,500 to 5,500 words story in a double-spaced, Arial, 12 point, black font, Word document (.doc or .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 a 50-words or less bio, written in the third person, and send to boyswhobehavebadlystranded@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. I will respond no later than December 30, 2018 with decisions.

Payment will be $25.00 USD ninety days after publication at the end of that month.

Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1

I’m extending the short story call for submissions for Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, with a few additions. If you’ve already submitted, your story is still being considered and you’ll still hear back from me by August 1, 2019, per your confirmation email.

I’ll consider all original bondage erotica stories meeting the guidelines below, but what I’d especially like to see for this second round of submissions are stories which incorporating one or more of these elements:

  • Sexy stories with an engaging beginning, middle and end where bondage is a part of the story, but the plot doesn’t revolve around bondage
  • Stories featuring established or long-term couples or multi-partner relationships
  • Stories about people who regularly engage in bondage
  • Stories featuring different types of bondage specific furniture
  • Stories featuring unusual or unofficial bondage items (items besides bondage rope, bondage tape, handcuffs, etc.)
  • Stories involving specific bondage types/positions (such as shibari, spreadeagle, rope harness, etc.)
  • Stories in a wide range of settings, especially ones readers wouldn’t expect bondage to take place in
  • Stories with playful motivations for bondage
  • Stories involving both bondage and sex toys
  • Stories from the point of view of characters of color (ownvoices stories get top priority)
  • Stories from the point of view of characters ages 50+
  • Stories set outside the United States, especially that explore a specific culture
  • Stories that approach the meaning of bondage in new ways

The more unique your story is in all aspects (setting, plot, characters, motivations, language), the more likely it is to be accepted.

Call for Submissions
Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
To be published by Cleis Press in late 2019
Deadline: August 15, 2018, 11:59 pm EST

For Best Bondage Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, Rachel Kramer Bussel is looking for your hottest, most creative unpublished 2,000-4,000 word bondage erotica stories (no poetry). Word count covers the text of the story, excluding title, byline and bio. This anthology will include characters of different races, ages, backgrounds and bondage experience levels, plus a wide range of motivations, techniques, implements, and scenarios engaging in a bondage or restraint scenario at some point in the story. I want characters ranging from newbies to seasoned bondage players and everything in between. I want first person, second person and third person stories. I want bondage in bedrooms, at play parties, at offices, in public, in secret. Bondage should be a central focus of the erotic element of the story but the plot does not have to hinge on bondage. For an idea of the types of stories I prefer, see Best Bondage Erotica 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. While reading them is not required for submission to this anthology, I generally will not repeat highly specific bondage implements that appeared in any of those volumes. Stories that do not contain any form of bondage or restraint will not be considered.

The final book will include stories focused on both the physical and mental aspects of bondage. Bondage plus other elements of BDSM or sexual activity is welcome (spanking, tickling, exhibitionism, voyeurism, intercourse, oral sex, teasing, etc.). The more creative the bondage, the better, but any type of bondage will work as long as the story is arousing and draws me in from the first word and keeps me riveted. The main reason I reject stories for a themed anthology is that tales are too similar to each other, so avoid clichéd plotlines and dialogue. Authors I’ve never published before are especially encouraged to submit to this anthology. Characters of all genders/sexual orientations welcome. No poetry. All characters must be over 18 for the entirety of the story.

No incest or bestiality. Note that I won’t be able to give final answers to submissions until August 1, 2019. If you need a response sooner, please do not submit to this anthology.

All stories should have a compelling beginning, middle and end. Make every word count and advance the story you want to tell. Consider each sentence and as: Does it serve a purpose? Is it advancing your story? If not, cut it. Make me care about your characters and get invested in their passions. Please see Best Bondage Erotica 2011-2015 for examples of the types of stories I’ve published.

Only unpublished stories will be accepted; this means no part of the story can have been published or posted previously anywhere, in print, online, in apps, on blogs, on bulletin boards or private groups, in newsletters, via email or anywhere else and cannot be published or posted in any form prior to the book’s publication in late 2019.

Rights (see below): non-exclusive right to publish your story in this anthology in print, ebook, and audiobook form. Authors will retain copyright to their stories. See contract terms below. If you cannot agree to these contract terms, do not submit work to this anthology.

ONLY SUBMIT ONE FINAL, THOROUGHLY PROOFREAD, GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT VERSION OF EACH STORY. Since I will be reading and considering stories as they come in, only the initial story submission will be considered; subsequent versions of the same story will NOT be considered, so please keep this in mind and make sure the submission you send contains exactly the story title, author name and text you would like to see published in the book. If I am interested in a revised version of your story, I will contact you.

How to submit: I will consider a maximum of two stories per author. Submit each story as a separate attachment using an email address that you check regularly. Submit only 2,000-4,000 original, unpublished stories that are not being considered elsewhere. Stories under 2,000 words or over 4,000 words will be automatically rejected. I want only original work that has never been published in whole or in part in any format, including online, apps, blogs, newsletters, social media, print or any other outlet. Must use U.S. spelling and grammar (double curly/smart [NOT straight] quotation marks around dialogue, etc.). Submit to bestbondageseries@gmail.com by attaching a Word .doc or .docx file, double spaced, Times New Roman Black font and titled BBE1 LastName StoryTitle (LastName=last name of your author name/name you want published). At the top of the first page, include legal name, pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address, phone number (only to be used for urgent communication about your story). You must include your 50 word-or-under third person professional biography either on the first page of your story or in the body of your email. This must be the exact bio you’d want published in the book. URLs in bios should be listed in the first sentence in this format only:

Rachel Kramer Bussel (rachelkramerbussel.com) writes fiction and non-fiction.

All stories must have a title and author name included at the top of the first page with the submission (no untitled stories). Indent half an inch at the start of each paragraph. Use only double spacing for the entire file; do not add extra lines between paragraphs or use any other irregular spacing. If you cannot use Word, submit as both an RTF and include the full submission in the body of an email, including title, story text, bio, name and pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address and phone number. MAKE SURE TO THOROUGHLY PROOFREAD YOUR STORY BEFORE SUBMITTING IT. All stories that are between 2,000-4,000 words and submitted by August 15, 2018 will be considered.

I will confirm that I have received your submission within one week. I will respond to all submissions by August 1, 2019 at the latest. If you have not heard back from me by August 1, 2019 feel free to follow up at that time.

RULE 34 Weird and Wonderful Fetish Erotica Volume 2

#internet rule 34. Top Definition. Rule 34. Generally accepted internet rule that states that pornography or sexually related material exists for any conceivable subject.

Zak Jane Keir is putting together a second volume of erotica celebrating the niche, the unusual and the thoroughly strange. Have a fetish for sneezing, farting, thunderstorms? Find a man wearing socks with sandals irresistible? Write a story about it and send it in. Last year’s collection included tales of erotic encounters involving arson, photocopiers, cake frosting, church bells, a dominant dentist, a life-size skeleton… and tripe. Let your imagination loose and see if you can outdo the previous authors.

While stories may be bittersweet and neither HEA nor HFN is mandatory, keep it sex-positive please; no kink-shaming.

Pairings – absolutely any, including person/object rather than person/partner. Straight, gay, group, open to offers…
Heat level – up to you.
Settings – contemporary/realistic preferred but historical/paranormal/sci-fi will be considered.

Warning: weird doesn’t mean illegal. Absolutely no underage participants/bestiality/actual necrophilia and no stories of abuse of living creatures not in a position to consent (paranormal, etc, is OK for things like vampires/werewolves/aliens)

Usual Sexy Little Pages restrictions apply – no paedophilia, no necrophilia, no incest or pseudo-incest, gratuitous violence, bestiality or fan fiction. More details on this are available on the submissions page (https://www.sexylittlepages.com/submissions/) or in the FAQs (https://www.sexylittlepages.com/faqs/).

Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 5

To be published by Cleis Press in December 2019
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Make sure to read and follow the guidelines in full. Guidelines may be updated over the course of the open submission period. The call for submissions section of bweoftheyear.com will always contain the most up-to-date version of these guidelines. For occasional BWE submission tips, follow @BWEoftheyear on Twitter and bestwomenserotica on Instagram.

This anthology is open to women, gender nonconforming, genderqueer and nonbinary authors only; if you do not fall into any of these categories, please do not submit to this anthology.

As in prior volumes, I want your best, boldest, hottest, most creative and diverse 2,000-4,500 word erotica stories. All stories must have a clear beginning, middle and end, with engaging characters and plotlines. Stories featuring creative plotlines have the best chances of being accepted. Unless the storytelling is exceptional, in most cases, plotlines and scenarios featured in prior Best Women’s Erotica of the Year volumes will not be included in this volume. Please note that final decisions will be made by September 30, 2019; if you cannot wait until then to hear back about your story, do not submit to this anthology. Contract terms (rights) stated below are non-negotiable, so please make sure they are acceptable to you before submitting.

Protagonists will range from single to coupled, of varying sexual orientations, races, ages (all characters must be 18+ for the entirety of the story), religions, fetishes, jobs, interests, locations and life experiences. First, second and third person narratives are all welcome.

The theme of this anthology is “Outrageous” and all published stories will touch on this theme (most without explicitly using the word “outrageous” in the story). I strongly encourage you to take that theme and run with it, keeping in mind that what’s “outrageous” to one character will be humdrum to another. The final book will feature a variety of characters exploring their own personal versions of outrageousness. While stories of sexual adventure and excess are extremely welcome, I’m also looking for stories that surprise the reader regarding the idea of outrageousness. Stories that don’t connect to the theme of outrageousness in some way will be rejected.

For stories featuring characters from marginalized groups, ownvoices stories are strongly preferred; if yours is an ownvoices story, you are welcome to mention that in your cover letter. This information will be kept confidential. If you’re not familiar with the term, see the creator’s definition of ownvoices here.

Stories in the final book will range from humorous and playful to intense and soulful to down and dirty, and will reflect a similar sexual, racial and age diversity as the stories in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4. Story submissions must be unpublished (never published, in whole or in part, anywhere, online or offline). No scat or incest, although age play will be considered as long as it’s clear in the context of the story that the characters are engaging in roleplay. No poetry will be considered.

In a nutshell: I want stories that blow my mind, that grab my attention and don’t let go, that say something new and exciting about sex and sexuality, that will appeal to longtime erotica readers and new readers of the genre. Make every word count. As you edit your story before submitting it, I encourage you to make sure each sentence serves a purpose and is advancing the story you’re telling.

I want stories that will make readers stop everything they’re doing and eagerly read every last word to find out what happens to your characters. I gravitate toward unique, creative, memorable characters, settings and scenarios. I will consider sci fi, fantasy, paranormal and historical stories, although contemporary stories will comprise the majority of the book. For an idea of the types of stories I like, see Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, 2 and 3. If you submitted a story to Volume 1, 2, 3 or 4 that was rejected, you may resubmit it, but in most cases, a new story stands a far better chance of acceptance.

In the interest of publishing the largest number of authors possible, writers whose work appears in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, 2, 3 or 4 edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel will NOT be considered for this volume, but contributors to previous Best Women’s Erotica collections by prior editors are welcome to submit work.

How to submit: Submit only 2,000-4,500 original, unpublished stories that are not being considered elsewhere. Word count applies to the text of your story, excluding story title and author name. Maximum two submissions per author. Stories CANNOT be under consideration elsewhere at any point prior to the book’s publication date in December 2018. I want only original work that has never been published online, in print or in any format at all, including personal or other types of blogs. All characters must be 18 or over for the entirety of the story. U.S. grammar (spelling, double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required.

Submit to bweoftheyear@gmail.com with “BWE 5 Submission: Story Title” in the subject line by attaching a Word .doc or .docx file titled BWE 5 Story Title Last Name, using Times New Roman Black font. At the top of the first page, include legal name, pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address, phone (only to be used for urgent communication about your story) AND 50 word-or-under third person professional biography to be published in the book. Make sure you use an email address that you check on a regular basis (at least once a week). If you include a URL in your bio, it should be included in the first sentence in this format:

Mmure

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 hello@mmure.com and include your name as the author/artist that you would like to be listed. That’s it!

Multifarious Press

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.

Thank you.
-Kaelan, Founder of Multifarious Press
