Nobilis Erotica Podcast

Nobilis Erotica is the longest running and most prolific erotica podcast on the internet! It’s hard to be that awesome (and sexy) without a bit of help. Even Nobilis can only produce so much wonderful smut.

Which is where you come in. Nobilis is looking for your best, most delectable and utterly sexy speculative fiction erotica stories. We’re looking for robots that turn you on, dragons that might want to do things with the princess other than devour her, and what happens when the lights go out in every sense of the word (possibly with a tentacle or three). Take off the corsets and uniforms and have some fun. We welcome LGBTQ+ stories.

We’re looking for stories that are both good speculative fiction and good erotica — are you up for the challenge? If not sure, listen to the podcast to find out what we like — free of charge.

Listen to the podcast on Libsyn or iTunes.

The stories can include:

  • Body part expansion (breast expansion, penis expansion, etc.)

  • Body part alteration (fur, tentacles, etc.)

The boring stuff:

  • Length: 1k to 5k words.
  • Payment: $25 flat rate for audio rights only.
  • Reprints? We’re most interested in stories that have already appeared in text (print or online) — please check your contract and make sure the audio rights are clear. Original stories are fine. Please do not send us stories that have already been podcasted.

MoFo Pubs

Mofo Pubs is an independent publisher of literary erotica. We are looking for well-written, compelling, original stories by writers with strong voices and the potential to publish multiple works. Stories that appeal to niche markets will be given preference over traditional romance tropes and clichés, although if you can tell a classic story with a unique twist we want to see it.


Mischief Books

An Avon/ HarperCollins imprint
Editor: Adam Nevill

What we are looking for

We publish an extensive list of original erotica and erotic romance in themed short story anthologies, petite novels of 40K minimum word length, novels and single author collections of 80K minimum word lengths.

We are looking for fiction that really is a cut above tired, formulaic, hurriedly written and mass produced erotica in a saturated genre. We are looking for inspired and imaginative explorations of explicit sexual fantasies, considered writing, well-developed characters, and interesting stories. Your stories should hit the ground running and sex and sexual tension must be the driving force of your narrative.

Stories need to be written in a modern idiom and the reader must find it easy to suspend her disbelief. The ideal narrative is one where the reader can vicariously enjoy all manner of thrilling erotic experiences, but they must be experiences which are credible.

What to send us

In the first instance, for single author titles (novel, novella or single author collections), you should send the following:

i) A short paragraph explaining what the submission is about, within your email (for short stories please state the title of the collection you are submitting to).

ii) For novels, novellas and single author collections of short stories, an outline of the work. We want you to convince us that erotic action and tension is the driving force of the narrative. We prefer novels and novellas to actually begin with an erotic scene as a statement of intent. Include the first chapter/story and two other chapters/stories of the finished text of single author titles which show your writing at its best.

Send your submission to the editorial email address:

We will attempt to acknowledge your proposal within a week of receiving it. But please be patient for news of an editorial decision. We are already receiving a large volume of proposals each week, so we’re constantly working with a huge backlog.The average waiting time for a full response can be as long as three months.

Once your proposal has been acknowledged, we’d very much appreciate if you don’t write or call to ask how it is faring.

Please do not send hard copies.

At Mischief we do pay advances for novels and novellas, as well as a very competitive royalty rate.

What we DO NOT Want

  • Single random short stories or reader’s letters style fantasies (unless requested or specific to an advertised collection)
  • General fiction with little or no erotic content
  • Sex scenes featuring under 18s or flashbacks to childhood ‘experiments’; in fact, we’d rather all characters were over 18
  • Sex acts that cause serious physical damage, genuine tragedy or anguish
  • Incest
  • Sex or sexual intimacy with animals
  • Bondage that involves constriction around the neck, or endangers life
  • Stories that focus heavily on
    • the breakdown of a relationship;
    • self-loathing, or the hatred of one’s body;
    • self-pity;
    • bitter revenge;
    • abusive, miserable, traumatic relationships.

Here’s a list of the most common reasons why we reject manuscripts:

  • No narrative development, just screeds of unbelievable adult action
  • There is insufficient erotic content and no erotic tension
  • It’s too silly
  • Mishandling and misunderstanding of consent
  • Tragic/unpleasant events such as illness, death, violence, etc. that detract from the eroticism. The emphasis should always be on pleasure
  • The central characters are unsympathetic/unattractive
  • The writing lacks fluency, compression and authority and suffers from:
    • repetitive sentence structure
    • limited vocabulary
    • overlong, overcomplicated sentences
    • blatant exposition (info dumping in ‘author’s voice’)
    • overwriting: excessive adjectives, adverbs etc.
    • lack of coherence/focus
    • Obsessive attention to the details of genital anatomy at the expense of thought/dialogue/action

Erotic short story collections for 2012

Submission guidelines: your story should not already be published anywhere in the world, unless, in some special cases you have all rights reverted to you. Ideally, it will have been written for the Mischief series and will adhere to our guidelines. The story should aspire to be about more than ‘some people having sex’ and we can only accept stories written for the themes (which offer a wide brief). The emphasis is on intensity, imagination, tension, pleasure, the thrills of shame, and explicit action and what’s-at-stake for the main character. We want to position these collections as suitable for the general reader as well as erotica readers.

We pay a flat fee of £75 providing your story is 4000 words. Payment is made on publication.

Many thanks in advance for considering us
Adam Nevill & the Mischief team.

We work with both established and new authors. We prefer original works, but will consider previously published stories as well.

Our four anthologies in progress:

Swords and Sandals — Erotic tales of ancient Greece and Rome. We’d love to see decadent stories from behind the pages of history. Gladiators, slaves, Senators, warriors, Centurions, brothels, orgies — inspired by the stories of these ancient cultures.

Of Passion and Steam — Erotic stories of Victorian and/or steampunk. Sex toys of brass, gears and steam? Victorian historical, science fiction or magic — all turned toward heating things up.

Desk Job — Erotic explorations of unbalanced power in the workplace, from the traditional boss/secretary to modern politician/intern.

Divine Desires — Erotic tales inspired by the pagan myths. Bring us those gods, goddesses, heroes and priestesses of old.
