Like a Haunted Trail: Erotic Tales of the Weird Wild West
Edited by Michael M. Jones

Deadline: March 15, 2014.

We’re looking for tales which embody the near-mythic status of the Wild West, infused with supernatural or speculative elements, containing explicit erotic, sensual, or sexual encounters. Anything goes, from vampire cowboys to werewolf lawmen, from sorceress schoolmarms to Fae bartenders to ghost herds in the sky. Alternate history, steampunk, even science fiction. The Weird Wild West is more than a time or a place, it’s a mood, a feeling, an atmosphere. Give the larger-than-life heroes and villains a chance to shine, and to have their sexy fun times.

All sexualities and gender expressions are welcomed. Kink is welcome too. All characters must be consenting and of legal age. We enjoy sexy, character-driven stories that celebrate the erotic. Characters of color are definitely encouraged for this anthology. The Weird Wild West provides endless opportunities for characters of all origins to make their mark.

This ebook anthology is being edited by Michael M. Jones for Circlet Press. Michael has edited anthologies for Circlet previously, including Scheherazade’s Facade and Like A Cunning Plan, and his short stories appear in many, many anthologies including Masked Pleasures, Like a Queen, Girl Fever, and Fantastic Erotica: The Best of Circlet Press.

Hard As Stone: Dwarven Erotica
Edited by Julie Cox

Deadline: March 1, 2014.

In these modern post-Hobbit days, it is high time we as a culture acknowledged one simple truth: dwarves can, in fact, be smokin’ hot. From the deep, rich and remote places of the world come legends of these fascinating beings: earthen men and women, fae kings, great metal workers and miners, mighty warriors, they are compact but virulent mythological figures. Send me stories of your dwarven nobility, cloaked in jewels dug from the heart of the earth, balancing their riches with their lust for flesh. Send me miners and tinkerers, digging through the mighty rivers of ore, alone in the dark … or with another. Send us star-crossed love across the races, or faerie tales retold. Dwarves appear in high fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, cyberpunk, magical realism and more. Love is not always young, and tall, and willowy, and beautiful. Love can be robust, hearty, hardworking, bearded and short. And still beautiful, in its own way.

All sexualities and gender expressions are welcomed. (Please note: original characters and settings only. Please do not infringe upon Tolkien or any other copyrighted work.)

This ebook anthology is being edited by Julie Cox for Circlet Press. Julie is the author of Chasing Tail, as well as the online serial Capricious and many erotic short stories.

Like Hearts Enchanted
Everyone has experienced some form of unrequited love, but what if you could wave a magic wand or brew yourself a potion to turn things around? Would there be unintended consequences, or unforeseen troubles to overcome? How far would you go to bring love into your own life? Would you climb an enchanted mountain for that all-important ingredient? Or perhaps you’re not the caster of the spell… you’re the target. From singing sirens of the sea to faerie enchantresses, the storybooks are full of mortals being lured by lust, love, and magic. A love spell is cast… you show us what happens next.

All sexualities and gender expressions are welcomed.

LIKE HEARTS ENCHANTED will be edited by Kathleen Tudor and Cecilia Tan.

LIKE A BREATH OF FLAME: Dragon Erotica. Great serpents and winged lizards appear in nearly every mythology on Earth — in South America we have gentle Quetzalcoatl the winged serpent, in Egypt we have Apep the god of Chaos, in Mesopotamia we have Tiamat the mother of monsters, in Greece we have Scylla and the Hydra, in Aboriginal Australia there is the Rainbow Serpent… the list goes on, ending, of course, with our old friends, the European dragons of majesty and flame and the East Asian dragons of luck and rain. In modern fantasy, we have dragon riders and dragon-kin, half-dragons and luck dragons, dragons who walk in the shape of men. But what of the sexual side of the dragon? What of sensuality at the border between earth and sky, what of courtship rituals that shake the earth, and what of the dragon’s interactions with man (after all, it is said that the Emperor of China is the descendant of dragons…), what of dragons who take on human shape to learn of mankind’s ways? With humans and dragons existing side by side since the dawn of time, at what points did their desires cross? And even in the modern day, can you find someone with fire in their blood and jewels in their eyes? For Like a Breath of Flame, we’re looking for erotic tales of dragons and their kin from every culture, mythology, and time period.

All sexualities and gender expressions are welcomed.

This ebook anthology is being edited by Cosmin Alexander and Cecilia Tan for Circlet Press.

CHARMING: Modern Gay Erotic Fairy Tales

Deadline: March 1, 2012 (EXTENDED!)

Once upon a time, in a land not very far away, Circlet Press was looking for erotic, modern-day fairy tales for the gay community. What happens when a young intern falls prey to the Big Bad Wolves of the New York stock exchange, or when an archaeologist stumbles across a sleeping prince in the ruins of Angkor Wat? From poisoned apples to glass slippers, classic fairy tales are full of sexual imagery if you know where to look; we want you to find those erotic threads and weave them into stories where the castle is an apartment building in Prague, and the Evil Queen is The Prince’s ex-boyfriend. Circlet welcomes sex positive stories with explicit representations of sexuality. All stories in this volume should be gay-themed (male/male focused) but the authors may be of any gender or orientation.

Title: What Happens in the Tavern Stays in the Tavern

The word “fantasy” evokes many different responses in people, but the most common is the idea of the epic fantasy quest. Tolkein stands as the progenitor of this subset of fantasy novels, and since his time many highly regarded authors have taken up the challenge and have provided readers with elaborate, fantastic worlds filled with perilous journeys and creatures to excite our imaginations. But haven’t you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes, during the downtime the authors gloss over? Studies show that people under stress and threat have more sex, not less. For this anthology, we want writers to tackle the pauses and interstices in a fantasy quest. What kinds of steamy adventures happen behind the scenes, when our heroes and heroines are trekking along their journey? Give us the peek behind the curtains we’ve all been waiting for.

Guidelines: Original characters and universes only, please. Writers and characters may be of any gender or orientation.

Length: Minimum length approximately 2500 words. For this anthology, we will consider stories up to 20,000 words in order to ensure that authors have sufficient room to stretch their epic fantasy legs a little, providing setting, character development, and reasonably detailed (and sexy!) sex scenes. 

Deadline: July 1, 2011.

How to submit: Jennifer Levine will be editing this anthology. All submissions must be made via email to jlevineeditor@gmail.com.

Circlet Press is looking for erotic coming-of-age stories about animal shapeshifters for the new ebook anthology, Like a Moonrise, edited by Artemis Savory and Cecilia Tan. All animals have instincts, but what happens when those instincts emerge in someone who is already settled in human life? Whether your character is just reaching adulthood (18+ characters only please) or whether their shapeshifting gives them a whole new adolescence, explore the struggle with urges and maturity. Most animals have a tender side, but sometimes they’re driven too far. What becomes suddenly irresistible, or despised? How does the particular shape affect their human lives? Are things different for werewolves versus were-tigers, for shifters who have phases versus those who can change at will? We’re looking for stories that focus on a human’s new identity as he/she becomes a shapeshifter, the everyday temptations and restraints, and especially the breaking point. Circlet Press welcomes sex-positive stories of all sexualities and preferences.

Submission Details:
Deadline for submission is October 15th. Our preferred length is approximately 3500 to 7500 words, but we will consider the range from 2000 to 10,000 words. All submissions must be made via email to the following address: artemissavory@gmail.com.

Circlet Press is seeking submissions for its new ebook anthology Like an Iron Fist: Dystopian Erotica, edited by Katherine Bergeron and Cecilia Tan. We are looking for stories that explicitly expose the erotic edge of tyranny and human desire.  The best novels of the genre (1984, Brave New World, Handmaid’s Tale) simmer with passion under the surface of societal oppression.  Reveal that passion to us, celebrate the sexuality that bursts forth; that’s what we’re looking for. Kink and queer stories are very welcome, as this volume will mix stories of various sexualities.
