Looking for erotic short stories of sexual encounters with “otherworldly” beings; ghosts, aliens, magical/mystical, paranormal, etc. for an anthology (to be named). This will be electronically published first and may progress to a print edition.
Stories must be erotic – explicit is fine, but not pornographic, meaning stories must have some substance and plot/storyline aside from the obvious sex. Also, this is not a collection of horror stories, meant to terrify, but exciting, erotic sex with the ‘unknown’. Use your imagination!
Unpublished work is preferred.
Submission deadline – October 31, 2004. Writers will be notified of the status of their stories by November 30, 2004.
Rights – chosen stories may be reprinted in any magazine, print or electronic, or in a collection of the author’s own work, but *not* to another anthology. (These are the proposed publisher’s requirements, not mine, sorry. If this changes, contributor’s will be notified.)
Payment – one time payment, whether this remains and ebook or goes to print, of $20 US, as well as author bio promoting novels, website etc. Payment will be made on publication.
Word count – Preferred length 2,000 to 5,000 words. Work that is poorly edited or with numerous spelling, punctuation and/or grammatical mistakes will be rejected.
Bio – 50 – 70 words (give or take) and please don’t forget to mention work/website, etc. that you want to promote.
Taboos – The usual; sexual activity involving children, incest, or bestiality.
This anthology will be compiled by Christine Calnin, author of “Addicted to Sex” www.ChristineCalnin.com
