Calling for Stories about Angels and Fairies!

We're doing two new anthologies.

There are angels who are good and pure and perfect -- and there are angels whose halos are a bit, well, crooked. And tarnished. They're naughty angels, and they've got more fun things to do than play harps and float on clouds.

Ravenous Romance is looking for steamy, sexy short stories for an anthology that features angels -- the naughtier, the better. M/F, M/M, F/F, and menage stories welcome. Submit your stories to acquisitions editor Jennifer Safrey at jen@ravenousromance.com. Please include a short query letter in the body of the email and the story as an attachment. Deadline August 1, 2011.

Call for Stories - Back Door Lover

Back Door Lover: Erotic Tales of Anal Intimacy
Editor: Debra Wilson-Koss
Deadline: 6/20/2011

Used to be, a back door lover was a man sneaking an affair with a married woman and was a Blues staple. Not anymore. Now, it's code for anal sex and I'd like to see stories celebrating its joys and adventures. Anything goes. Any orientation: straight, male/male, lesbian, bisexual. Any configuration: couples, threesomes, or swinging. Any practice: bio-body parts, pegging, anal toys. If it's a show of pleasure, I'm interested in it.

While I'll welcome a couple of tales of introductory experiences, I want stories that reflect a range of experience levels. I also want to see a solid level of emotional intimacy between your characters, but that can range from undying love to adoring buddy-hood. Your characters should know how lucky they to have one another! I welcome BDSM power exchanges as long as they're clearly consensual and steer clear of villainy.

Stories should be between 2,500 and 5,000 words. Email submissions to debrawriting at cox dot net as a double-spaced Word or RTF attachment with “Back Door Lover” in the subject line. Include your name (and pseudonym, if applicable), bio, mailing address, email, title of the piece and word count as part of your document. The header of each page should include your name and page number.

Compensation: Ravenous Romance short story advance of $10, a copy of the anthology, plus a pro rata share of any revenue/subsidiary rights.
