Taking Submissions: Just Desserts

July 31, 2016


Deadline: July 31st, 2016
Payment: $5.00 with an equal share of 50% of royalties.

“Revenge is a dish best served cold..” Eugène Sue, Memoirs of Matilda, (1848)

Indeed revenge is sweet! How about served with a big scoop of ice cream, with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a gleaming
drop of blood red cherry on top?

Just Desserts is all about vengeance. Whether your character is dishing it out or tasting the well-deserved (or not) fruits of
their actions, we want to hear stories of revenge. We’ll accept most genres, including science fiction, fantasy, mystery,
horror (but keep the PG-13 rating in mind), romance, steampunk, Weird Western, and poetry of various types.
We are especially looking for DIVERSE protagonists and characters, all races, including aliens, sexual orientations,
disabilities, etc.

RESTRICTIONS:  No fan-fic or erotica. Keep the content PG-13, please.  Limit profanity, seriously gory violence, and
erotic content. We want to make this book available to young adult readers as well as adults. If you have questions about
content, please feel free to email:  [email protected]

SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED: We do not accept simultaneous submissions. Make this your best work. If we see spelling,
grammar, and punctuation errors, we’ll reject your story. We will accept reprints if you have the current rights to them.
