Taking Submissions: 50 Shades of Dead

December 31, 2020

Deadline: December 31st, 2020
Payment: $10 for short stories (3000-8000 words)
Theme: Horror romance/erotic horror

Working Title: 50 Shades of Dark

Deadline: Dec 31 2020 or When Full


Horror romance/erotic horror. This is not for pure erotica or romance (no standard PNR), and not for horror that lacks any romantic elements. The components of romance, sensuality, and horror should be well woven together. Happily ever afters not required. Sex not required, but if included should be well done. The best submissions will be equal parts titillating and nightmare fuel.

Looking for stories at a hard R to NR rating, but all levels of sensuality and horror will be considered. If you have ever wanted to push boundaries, this is the call to do it in!

Preference will be given to #OwnVoices, female authors, LGBTQA stories, but all are welcome to submit!

Length Accepted:

Flash, and Shorts.

Eligibility: Open to all. No Reprints. No simultaneous submissions.

Multiple Submissions: See guidelines and story lengths for the number of submissions per pen name.

Publication: Feb 2021
