Halloween Flash Fiction

Circlet Press is seeking erotic horror flash fiction to be posted on our website during the month of October. As with all Circlet work the sex must be consensual and all gender pairings are welcome. Please no stories set at Halloween parties. We encourage you to think outside the box. The stories do not have to be set on Halloween. We are simply looking to combine the elements of horror with the elements of erotica. Send a chill down our spine while simultaneously turning us on. Humor is alright too so long as it fits with the theme.

Stories must be under 1500 words and the deadline is October 1st. Payment is $5 per story and multiple submissions are okay. 

Please send submissions as either a Word doc or in the body of an email to jwsubs13@gmail.com

Kintsugi – Powerful Stories of Healing Trauma

This is SinCyr’s first nonfiction open call! For this collection, we’ve decided to call it Kintsugi, named after the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or other fine materials. The idea is to take something shattered or cracked and turn it into a piece even more beautiful than before.

What we’re looking for:

Personal stories about healing trauma. For some of you, writing this piece may be your first step to healing. For others, you may have come through great amounts of abuse and found your agency and joy. These stories will vary because abuse varies. How it affects us varies. Because the company is focused on shifting rape culture, body shaming, toxic masculinity and so forth, the stories should fit somewhere into these categories.

Were you sexually abused? Body shamed? Harassed and bullied for your sexuality or gender? The victim of abused power? Did the abuse cause difficulty in maintaining healthy relationships? How has the abuse affected you sexually and how have you healed? Found your joy? Or are you taking that first step to healing right now by writing for this collection?

Transformation is beautiful. Sharing your story is powerful.

Here are some vital details to remember when writing for and submitting to this collection:

  • These stories should focus on healing from abuse. Sharing abuse is necessary to illustrate what you’ve overcome, but we’d like the focus to be on the healing and not the trauma itself. If this is your first step to healing, you might share how you came to accept what happened or what you plan to do to move forward now that you’ve shared and started down the path of healing.
  • For liability reasons, please don’t call out specific people for their abuse. Keep it vaguer. We can’t print anything that calls out someone in too much detail. This includes mental health, as it’s not ethical to print other’s mental illness details. There is also the option of pen names or Jane Doe One, John Doe Five, etc…
  • Polished stories only. Make sure your story is clean. Follow the submission guidelines for formatting.

Submission Guidelines:

  • 12pt font, Times New Roman
  • Double Spaced, no extra line between paragraphs
  • Do not hit the “tab” key to indent paragraphs. Use Word’s margins/ruler to indent.
  • Send in Word doc or rtf. Word is preferred.

Word count: 1000-5000 words
One story submission per person.
Submission Deadline: October 31, 2017

Editor: Sienna Saint-Cyr

Send submissions to sincyr.submissions@gmail.com with the subject line KINTSUGI: your title.

Payment – 60% of net royalties split between authors.

“Shifting rape culture one sexy story at a time.”

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

Cleis Press: Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 4

Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
To be published by Cleis Press in December 2018

Make sure to read and follow the guidelines in full. Guidelines may be updated over the course of the open submission period. Bweoftheyear.com will always contain the most up-to-date version of these guidelines. For occasional BWE submission tips, follow @BWEoftheyear on Twitter.
 
This anthology is open to women authors only, as the series has been since its inception (genderqueer and nonbinary authors are also welcome to submit as well). As in prior volumes, I want your best, boldest, hottest, most creative and diverse 2,000-4,000 word erotica stories, written by and starring a wide range of women, from single to coupled, living in big cities and small towns anywhere in the world, of varying sexual orientations, races, ages (all characters must be 18+ for the entirety of the story), fetishes, jobs, interests and life experiences. First, second and third person narratives are all welcome. The two main themes of this anthology will be Outsiders and Risk, as detailed below. Stories lacking one of those themes will be considered, but will comprise only a small portion of the final anthology.
 
For this volume, I’m especially interested in the themes of outsiders and risk, though those words don’t need to be used explicitly in the story but should be conveyed by the plot. In terms of outsiders, that could include any woman who feels like an outsider, whether from her relationship, her family, her community, her workplace, her country, etc. Perhaps she is right to feel like an outside, because she’s ostracized or left out; perhaps she would be welcomed but still feels like an outsider. Whatever the case, I want to read about how her outsider status is affected by her sexuality, and vice versa. Perhaps she is a refugee arriving in a new country, a virgin whose friends are all sexual libertines, a woman who’s made to feel her desires are untoward or unnatural, etc.
 
In terms of risk, I want to read about women who put everything on the line in pursuit of love and lust, who take dramatic, daring risks that will make readers marvel at their passion. Maybe she quits her job, or dares to make waves in a long-term relationship. Maybe she pursues someone everyone’s told her is wrong for her, but she does it anyway. How is taking a risk sexy for her? What is she sacrificing, and why is she doing it? I want to read about women who are natural risk takers as well as those who are innately risk averse but are compelled to go against their instincts and take a risk anyway. I don’t want clichéd plotlines or generic characters; stories should be utterly unique, captivating and arousing. Stories can reflect current events, but shouldn’t be so specific that they will be out of date. Stories should be timeless enough to appeal to readers now as well as in ten, twenty or thirty years. Keep in mind that stories will not overlap in plotlines, so the more individual and memorable yours is, the more likely it is to be accepted.
 
I’m especially interested in hearing from and about: stories by authors based outside the United States (and stories set outside the United States), stories starring women of color (ownvoices preferred), stories starring transgender women (ownvoices preferred), stories featuring women in their forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties or nineties, romantic erotica (they don’t necessarily need to have a traditional “happily ever after,” but happy endings are extremely welcome too), stories involving more than two people, stories in unusual settings, erotica touching on current events (though the story should be one readers ten or twenty years from now will also appreciate), stories with a feminist outlook (that may or may not have the word “feminism” or “feminist” in the text but convey a feminist worldview), BDSM stories, especially ones outside of the Master or Mistress dynamic, and stories starring women with creative, memorable fetishes.
 
Stories in the final book will range from humorous and playful to intense and soulful, and will reflect a similar sexual, racial and age diversity as the stories in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volumes 1 and 2. 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 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. 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 and 2. If you submitted a story to Volume 1, 2 or 3 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 a wide range of authors, those whose work appears in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 1, 2 or 3 will not be considered for this volume, but contributors to previous Best Women’s Erotica collections are welcome to submit work.

Cleis Press: Erotic Teasers anthology (working title)

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

Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel is looking for original, unpublished and highly creative erotic short stories around the theme of teasing for an anthology to be published by Cleis Press. This anthology will contain 15-17 varied stories that involve everything from edging to prolonged foreplay, sense deprivation (blindfolds, earplugs, etc.), tickling and other forms of erotic teasing. Feel free to use your imagination with this theme. Every story in the book will approach the theme of teasing differently, so variety is key.
I don’t want any clichéd story lines or shopworn characters; I want unique and engaging plots that involve couples and couplings about characters of different sexual orientations, genders, ages, races and sexual experience levels who are exploring this arousing type of sexual play. The majority of the book will feature contemporary settings, but I will also consider historical and futuristic/paranormal/sci-fi tales. All sexual acts must be clearly consensual by all parties.
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. 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 want to read about characters who push the envelope, who challenge themselves and their lovers, who are daring and wicked and kinky, who have fun with their erotic adventures, whether they are the one doing the teasing or being teased. I’m not looking for simplistic sex scenes, but rather stories with heart and soul, stories that readers will remember long after they turn the final pages, and stories that will likely inspire readers in their own erotic adventures.

  • Stories must be between 3,500-4,500 words and never previously published anywhere, in whole or in part, online or offline.
  • Stories submitted below 3,500 words or above 4,500 words will be automatically rejected.
  • All characters must be 18+ through the story.
  • No incest or scat.

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 exact contract terms below.

How to submit:

Submission Deadline: October 1, 2017

ONLY SUBMIT ONE FINAL, THOROUGHLY PROOFREAD, GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT VERSION OF YOUR 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.

Guidelines:

  • Submit only 3,500-4,500 original, unpublished stories that are not being considered elsewhere.
  • Stories CANNOT be under consideration elsewhere.

Xcite Romance

Xcite Publishing is looking for novels and novellas for their Xcite Romance imprint.

Xcite is a royalty paying publisher, offering competitive rates to authors — we have very high standards, but welcome work from all authors, new or published.

Standard royalties are 25% on ebook and 20% on audio, and all rights must be available or we aren’t able to take the book on. Xcite Books takes five years exclusive rights world wide.

All works must fit into the Xcite Romance range, which is designed to offer a powerful, provocative and passionate reading experience. The writing must be of the highest calibre with well-developed plotlines and three dimensional characters. We need strong Alpha male heroes and feisty but lovable females who come together in a happy ever after ending. The setting and timeline are completely flexible — either contemporary or historic but no time-travel or sci-fi please. Above all, we require originality in the storyline — the erotic romance genre is overloaded with heroes who are bounty hunters, navy SEALS and billionaires (or a combination of the three…), so give us everyday Joes and Josephines who are looking for lasting love, as well as high-flyers and characters in impossibly glamorous professions. There needs to be strong erotic tension and sensual scenes throughout the story and a climatic, explicit erotic ending. The eroticism needs to come from the quality of writing and build of tension rather than graphic, hard core action.

As with all of our titles the story needs to be female friendly and all intimacy must be consensual. Due to the emphasis on romance and the target markets the following should not be included:

  • Strong BDSM — some play bondage or gentle spanking is acceptable
  • Male on male action
  • Golden showers
  • Threesomes/orgies

Word length:
Novellas 20-25,000 words
Novels: 60,000 – 80,000 words
Target Reader: Female

What to submit: For novellas, please send the full novella along with a brief synopsis. For novels, send the first three chapters, along with a detailed synopsis. If you are submitting a proposal for a three-book series, we need the first three chapters of the first novel in the series and a full synopsis, along with full outlines for books two and three.

Manuscripts can be submitted via the form at xcitesexystories.com/write-for-xcite-author-submissions.

Wordwooze Publishing

Unless there is some compelling reason to do otherwise, all books that we accept will be published in both ebook and audiobook formats.

We are actively seeking submissions of erotic novellas, novels and anthologies of any length. Please read and follow our submissions guidelines before sending us your manuscript.

You are welcome to visit Wordwooze.com to learn more about us or send an email to editor@wordwooze.com with any questions you may have.
