The best thing you can do to increase your chances of getting into this book are to read these directions thoroughly, follow them, and write a killer, creative story. As in, yes, the book is called Peep Show, but all the stories can't be set at a peep show. For an idea of an amazing story (not about exhibitionism, but still) go read "The World of Men" by Delilah T. Jones at Sarah Palin Erotica. I wish every story I published could be like that. (I don't mean the political angle, I mean the writing. I have tons more favorites too, pretty much anything by L. Elise Bland, Stan Kent, Donna George Storey, Alison Tyler...)
Call for Submissions: Peep Show
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
To be published by Cleis Press in Fall 2009
Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel is looking for erotica stories about exhibitionism and voyeurism. All genders/sexual orientations will be considered though the book will contain primarily heterosexual stories. Stories should have exhibitionism and/or voyeurism as a central theme; the more creative your plotline, the better. Please see my previous books Caught Looking and Hide & Seek for examples of the kinds of exhibitionism/voyeurism stories I like. Stories should be original and unpublished (no reprints). All characters must be over 18; no incest or bestiality.
Payment: Contributors will receive $50/story and 2 copies of the anthology on publication in Fall 2009.
How to submit (you MUST follow these directions or your submission will not be considered): Send double spaced Times New Roman or Times 12 point font Word document OR RTF of 1,500-5,000 word story along with your legal name (and pseudonym if applicable), mailing address, and 50-75 word bio to peepshowantho at gmail.com - make sure you indent HALF AN INCH at the start of each paragraph and do not add extra lines between paragraphs. To see a properly formatted story as a Word document, download this story of mine.
Authors may submit ONE story only. If you want to make sure I’ve received your submission, please state that in your cover letter. Send only the final version of your story; do NOT submit a draft or unfinished version only to later submit an updated version or your submission will likely not be considered. I cannot read or comment on drafts or story ideas; if your story contains exhibitionism and/or voyeurism, that is sufficient.
If for some reason it is impossible to send your story as a Word document or RTF attachment, please paste it into the body of your email. If you’d like to see a properly formatted story, please email me and I will send you one.
You can expect to hear from me by July 2009 at the latest.
Any questions about this anthology should be sent to peepshowantho at gmail.com
Deadline: January 4, 2009
