Here they are! Check them out and pass them around your naughty writing circles. Remember, it doesn’t officially open until August 1st, so there is plenty of time to get your creative juices flowing (and we positively are not accepting until then! We need time to stock up on tissues.). We’re excited to see what you come up with!
They will be posted at the bottom of our Submissions Page, as well, so you’ll always know where to find them. We also have a dedicated product page for it that currently shows the guidelines: HERE!
Anthology Title: 66-Sex Club
Format: Ebook only.
Publisher: Scarlet Petals Press, edited by KHP Publishers, Inc.
Submission Period: August 1, 2013 to October 31, 2013 or until all slots are filled. There are only 10 slots so send us your best!
The Fast Pitch: Imagine if The Twilight Zone was an underground BDSM night club.
The Long Pitch: There is a mysterious secret in “The City” that has the tabloids frothing at the mouth and many others watching every door and alley like kids hoping for a glimpse of Santa. It’s the legendary 66-Sex Club, a BDSM club that opens every night, but never in the same place. The door could be anywhere and nearly anything. Nobody ever knows how to get there, but it will present itself to those who “need” it most. There is also a rumor of certain taxi drivers who may know of its whereabouts at any given time, but good luck sweet-talking them!
This club is a multi-leveled catacomb stretching under “The City” in some other dimension. It knows your deepest secrets and desires, bad or good, and exploits them. Will you receive pleasure or pain? Most likely both.
The house mistress is quite a spunky dominatrix. For those lucky enough to meet her, she goes by a legion of names and wears as many faces.
It’s up to the authors to help build on this universe, sharing with the readers the experiences of those who frequent the establishment.
Examples: A woman stressed nearly to the point of a nervous breakdown passes a janitor’s supply closet and hears music on the other side. She opens it and enters the club for the best “release” she could ever imagine. Or perhaps a corrupt politician who thinks he’s untouchable is eating at a Chinese restaurant. He walks through the restroom doorway and finds himself at the club where he proceeds to lose the chip on his shoulder.
Length: Stories should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words (firm).
Content: This is erotica, so we want sex and naughty behavior. Romance is welcome but not always necessary for BDSM. Gay or straight is accepted. What is NOT accepted, however, is the following: rape/nonconsensual, underage (below 18), bestiality (animal play is fine, just no sex with actual animals), incest (pseudo-taboo is okay, like step sisters, etc), and necrophilia… Okay, maybe some necrophilia (weird zombie BDSM are not out of the question), but we’re firm on the others.
Where to Submit: Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org with “66-Sex Club” and your story title in the email heading. Have your contact information in the body of the email and the story attached in .doc format. Let us know if you have any questions before submitting.
How to Submit: Submissions should be in block format manuscript style, where possible. No special fonts or formatting. Please use acceptable manuscript formatting (double-space with one-inch margins) and Times New Roman 12 point font. Include your contact information (real contact for records/payment purposes – to be kept private – plus writing name, address, email, and Paypal address). Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please only send us 1 story at a time. Your work must be unpublished at the time of submission. Do not send stories in a series that has already been launched by another publisher or that you are self-publishing. We will consider reprints, but only if your story has been out of print for several years or you have a large body of work.
Response Times: We will reply that we’ve received your submission. If you hear nothing for a few days, check with us in case it went to our spam folder by mistake. After that, expect to receive a response in 1-4 weeks. Please do not send follow-up emails unless you place the story elsewhere before you’ve received a reply from us. We don’t do form rejections because we’re human and more importantly, so are you.
Payment: $20.00 paid upon acceptance via Paypal (no checks).
Rights: Our payment purchases the right to publish your story in our anthology. KHP Publishers, Inc. owns the rights to the anthology as a whole, while you retain rights to your story.
