Taking Submissions: Blood in the Rain

June 1, 2015

Deadline: June 1, 2015
Payment: 2.5 cents a word, with a minimum of $75

For the vampire erotica anthology Blood in the Rain, available October 2015, we seek short stories of 2000–7000 words, preferably by Northwest authors—from Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska.

Your story must include both a vampire and an erotic element, but it doesn’t have to be a “true” vampire, whatever that is, and the vampire doesn’t have to be the story’s focus. Erotically, we’re open to anything from a sexy tease to hardcore adult content. We encourage stories nonstereotypically including people who are LGBTQI (or A if you can make it work), people of color, and people any age above 18.

Most of all, we want compelling characters having hot sex, with a story that draws us in. And a vampire. Bottom line: Make us horny.

Stories due June 1, 2015. We pay on acceptance: 2.5 cents a word, with a minimum of $75.

The Nitty Gritty

  • Send your story as a .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf file to [email protected], with SUBMISSION and the story title in your subject line (for example, SUBMISSION: My Sexy Vampire Story).
  • Use traditional manuscript format for your story. If you don’t know what that is, seethis handy guide. And for the love of the gods, proofread before sending.
  • Give us a short cover note, ideally with an author bio.
  • Let us know if your story’s a reprint. We might take the perfect reprint, but original work is preferred.
  • Send as many submissions as you want, but we’re not likely to pick more than one story from any writer.
  • We’re buying first North American serial rights, first North American audio publishing rights, first world online rights, and archival rights (that is, to potentially archive your story on our website).
