Submission guidelines: your short story should not already be published anywhere in the world. Thematically, it should be written with the Xcite guidelines in mind. Obviously you will not be tied to having to provide detailed plot, numerous characters and enough varied types of sex to fill a novel, but the story should be about more than ‘some people having sex’. The emphasis is on intensity, imagination, erotic tension, pleasure and explicit action and what’s-at-stake for the main character. We want to position these as suitable for the general reader as well as erotica fans.
We pay a flat fee of £50 providing your story is 2 – 4000 words (though 4K is preferred). Payment is made on publication; letter of acceptance is issued one month prior to publication.
In addition there are three other collections already scheduled that are still taking submissions:
– Ultimate Spanking – pub date April 2010 (best to get a story to us by Jan 2010
– Ultimate Uniforms – pub date August 2010 (subs to us by March 2010 ideal)
– Boy Fun – pub date Oct 2010 (subs by May 2010)
