Editor, Justus Roux posts this call:
I will be accepting submissions for my new anthology: “Bosslady”
This time around I am only accepting short stories, sorry but no poems. What I am looking for is hot, hot, hot erotica about the alpha female. Romantic, Sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, etc: basically any genre. Stories can have hetro, bi, or gay characters as long as the woman is clearly in charge. This necessarily doesn’t mean every story has to have BDSM theme, though those kinds of stories are welcomed. I will not accept stories involving children, animals or incest, other than that anything goes.
Word count limit is 10,000.
I am asking for nonexclusive rights which mean you are free to submit your story elsewhere if you wish. Reprints are okay as long as you have the rights to the story.
You can submit stories now, but I won’t begin reading submissions until the beginning of March. The deadline is March 24, 2006, with an estimated release date of May 1, 2006. This book will be an e-book as well as a print book.
I don’t care how many writing credits you have it’s the story I go by, so I encourage new writers to submit stories. I read every submission and try to give constructive feedback.
Send stories as a Word doc. attachment or copy and paste story in the body of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put that you are submitting for the anthology in the subject line. I will send notification that I have received your submission. Please no fancy fonts, New Times
Roman is what I prefer, it’s easier to format.
Compensation: $25 plus a print copy of the book.
They are also looking for an artist to create the cover:
To keep in tradition with my other three anthologies I am looking for an artist to have their creation on the cover of “Bosslady”. I am looking for something that will embody the alpha female. New artists are welcomed.
If interested send submissions in jpg format to email@example.com
If chosen you will have to send final copy in 300dpi format.
Compensation: $100 plus a print copy of the book.
