Looking for some inspiration? The coming months offer a wealth of anthologies and publishing houses seeking submissions on a variety of themes. Writers can not only gain publication credits, but also benefit from working with stellar writer-editors such as Francesca Lia Block, who is accepting submissions for an anthology titled Love Magick, and Lucy Felthouse, who is rocking a mythology anthology.
Get those creative minds thinking, and those fingers typing!
Mythology Anthology: Erotic writer/editor Lucy Felthouse has put out a call for submissions for a new anthology she’s compiling. Here’s are some details: “I’m looking for stories involving mythology. I want myths and legends from all over the world, and from different periods of time. You can set the stories in the past or the present. That’s pretty much it! Just send me erotic stories from the depths of your imagination.” Felthouse is looking for 25 stories, and the deadline is April 30. For more information, visit: http://lucyfelthouse.co.uk
LOVE MAGICK: Liz Dubelman (www.vidlit.com) and author Francesca Lia Block are looking for fiction and poetry submissions that deal with the magical aspects of love and the love-aspects of magic. Magical-realism, surrealism, dream-realism, fantasy, urban fantasy, contemporary fairy tale, fairy tale and even erotica, sci-fi and horror. “We are looking for powerful, romantic, sexy, magical, strange, original perhaps somewhat unsettling pieces that come from the heart and stir the imagination.” Stories are due by May 14, with a publication date of Valentine’s Day 2012. Submissions can be sent to francescaliablock @ sbcglobal. net (spaces removed).
Anger & Revenge: Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays about anger and revenge, true tales of frustration and retribution, long-buried memories of outrage and reprisal–or the absence of either. We’re looking for stories that explore the lost art of the thoughtful diatribe, illustrate the beauty of the lyrical barb, invent elaborate secret plots, and generally don’t play well with others.
Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and compelling narrative with a significant element of research or information, and reach for some universal or deeper meaning in personal experiences. We’re looking for well-written prose, rich with detail and a distinctive voice. Since it’s a contest, there’s a $20 reading fee, and submissions must be postmarked by March 16. For more information, visit http://www.creativenonfiction.org
MuseItUp Publishing continues to seek submissions in romance, paranormal, fantasy, mystery, young adult, horror and dark fiction, and sci-fi. The MuseItHOT! imprint is looking for erotica submissions: “whether naughty but nice, naughty and sizzling, or naughty and sizzling HOT (…) We would like to see well-developed stories and characters we can easily connect with. We’ll acquire erotic romance in all subgenres: Contemporary, suspense, paranormal, fantasy, historical, f/f, m/m, ménage (with people please, no animals!!). The publisher accepts stories from 3,000 words and up, but prefers novella lengths ranging from 15,000 to 25,000 words. For more information, visit https://museituppublishing.com
SHAPELESS LOVE: Ravenous Romance is hungry for erotic romance stories abound of werefolk… wolves and tigers that are also human, and very, very hungry between the sheets. In SHAPELESS LOVE, we’re seeking new stories of the other shifters: the dragons, the snakes, the birds and the bears, as they deal with their human – and not-so-human – appetites for love and sex.
The publisher would like to see stories between 2,000 to 5,000 words. Ravenous Romance pays $10 up front and a pro-rata share of the royalties. The editor asks for writers to let him know ASAP if you’re interested in submitting. Send your story with the subject line “Shapeless Love – Submission” to russell@ravenousromance.com. Accepting submissions until March 30, 2011. For more information on RR calls, watch http://ravenousromance.blogspot.com/
Father’s Day Theme: Fathers need love too! At least Silver Publishing thinks so. Do you have a story where your one main character (M/F or M/M) has a child. What a better way to celebrate Father’s Day but with the present of a new love for a Dad that needs it?
Silver Publishing is looking for quality sensual or erotic romance stories of Dad finding a new love, complete with all the accompanying complications of being Dad. When submitting, please clearly state that you’re submitting for the Father’s Day Submission Call. Word length of 15,001+. Deadline is May 7, 2011. For more information, visit http://silverpublishing.info.

    A Slice of Orange started in 2004 as a group of authors from Orange County, California. We have expanded to include authors from around the globe–from the UK, all across the US to New Zealand. Our authors include the multi-published and writers at the beginning of their publishing career. In addition to authors, we feature blog posts from editors, PR professionals, and cover designers. The bright segments of the writing and reading community that make up one perfect entity—A Slice of Orange.

    Every month the Orange Blossom features the latest Calls for Submissions. Starting this month, we’ll also post the calls to “A Slice of Orange.” If you hear of a hot call, please pass it along.

    Decadent Publishing is accepting submissions in Sci-Fi Rom, Erotica, m/m and multi, Historical Rom, and Steampunk or Cyberpunk. Publishers also “adore” a wonderful Contemporary romp and Paranormal is fabulous. Cross-genre is welcomed. 

    Decadent Publishing also is building a YA catalog with some 5-star reviewed books. They would like to see some shorts (5k+) to novella-length subs. I would never turn down a fantastic full-length, however.

    Our focus at Decadent Publishing is quality storytelling. “We employ some really WONDERFUL editors, and they really care about developing a story and an author to give everyone the best.”


    For more information, visit http://www.decadentpublishing.com and click on “Submissions.”

    Master of Mine:
    Sometimes men and women need to be taught a lesson, and what better way to make a body burn with desire, than sexual submission?

    Evernight Publishing wants your hot, sophisticated BDSM Romance. Stories must be 5 – 10K, in any sub-genre (historical, contemporary, paranormal, etc.). Think kink, pain for pleasure, increased sexual tension and limitations. We want a HFN or HEA for one woman with one or more men. Use frank language typical of the genre, and make sure your manuscript is polished and engaging. 

    Deadline for submissions is March 15, 2011 to be published on or around May 15, 2011.
    Send submissions to evernightsubmissions@gmail.com, and add “BDSM Anthology” in the subject field.

    As Red Sage’s first authors created erotic romance, this is where our heart is, so we want romance stories, which are erotic. Therefore a majority of what we publish will be romance and erotica. We also feel readers want variety. Sometimes you like erotic and sometimes you just want a great mystery or science fiction story or even something else. Surprise us and come up with something completely different!

    Genre and sub-genre is unimportant, as long as the writing quality is strong and both the romantic and sensual elements are appropriate for what we publish.

    Story length is 25,000 to 55,000 and 55,000 to 100,000 words. For more information, visit http://www.eredsage.com/store/Submission_Guidelines.html
    Liquid Silver Books is currently accepting all erotic romance genres. Romance is the key to our stories. Stories must have well developed characters, with depth and explosive chemistry that entice the reader to like and/or identify with them. Mix in an imaginative and fully realized plot, vivid settings, and clear dialog and you’ve got the ingredients for a story we’d be interested in publishing.

    We do not accept literary Erotica submissions. Manuscripts with obvious grammar, formatting and editing issues will not be considered. Make sure your work is critiqued and polished prior to submitting.

    Heat levels go from “sweet” to “molten.” For more information, visit http://www.liquidsilverbooks.com/guidelines.htm
