Last night's Erotica 101 workshop was intimate but fascinating and totally got me inspired. I'm teaching another one at TES on Tuesday, with a kinky twist, and will hopefully have info on more soon. Today I'm taping e-classes for DigiRomp on erotica. This is also a reminder that I really, really want your stories for my e-books - I only have a few so far. Deadline is 9/30! After that I think I may pitch some more ideas inspired by the workshop.

E-Book Calls for Submissions: Sex and Music and Lust Chronicles
I'm editing 2 new e-book anthologies for Ravenous Romance, to be published in December 2008.
For both: 1,500-3,000 words, Times or Times New Roman, double space, indent 1/2 an inch at start of each paragraph. Unpublished work only. All characters must be over 18; no incest or bestiality. All sexual orientations/genders welcome. Send as Word Document; if you cannot send as Word Document, send as RTF or in the body of an email.
LUST CHRONICLES: Erotic memoir, aka true sex stories. It has to be true and about you and involve sex. Can be funny, adventurous, sexy, dark, etc. Does not have to be "erotic" per se. Looking for a wide range of scenarios, everything from group sex to BDSM to best times, craziest times, first times, etc.
SEX AND MUSIC: Erotica about sex and music, could be band/groupie, music teacher, masturbating to a hot song, making a music video, musical performance, etc. Again, looking for a wide range of scenarios.
Send BIO and MAILING ADDRESS (either in the Word Doc or in body of your email) and WORD DOCUMENT with your submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org (if you previously sent a story to another address, I have it) with "Lust Chronicles" or "Sex and Music" in subject line
DEADLINE: September 30, 2008 (but I will be accepting stories on a rolling basis, so the sooner you get them in, the better)
PAYMENT (Updated): Authors will receive $1/page PLUS portion of the E-book and MP3 royalties. We are purchasing electronic rights for 3 years and audio rights.
