Huddle: Sex With Sporty Queers
Editor: Angela Tavares
Publisher: Go Deeper Press
Deadline: April 30, 2013
Payment & rights: $25 per story; first international electronic rights
Jocks. Sure, you may have hated them back in high school, especially if you were queer, and that’s okay. But think back. Did you not find yourself admiring them from afar: that sinew of muscle in their calves or stomachs, the way they embraced a good sweat, their fists in the air after they contributed to a hometown win? Or maybe you were a jock, and if this is the case, you know exactly what can happen in those locker rooms, on those long bus rides to a hotel three states away, or at a bar when you run into members of the team you’re playing tomorrow in the big game.
Love them or hate them, jocks are…oh…they’re hot, and the editors of Go Deeper Press are looking for exciting, inventive, erotic stories for our fiction anthology “Huddle: Sex With Sporty Queers.” “Huddle” will be edited by Angela Tavares (rubthis.blogspot.com).
The deadline is April 30, 2013 (midnight EST).
Fictional stories only, please. We buy first international electronic rights. Authors will be paid $25 per story, but as Go Deeper Press grows in size, our listed authors will receive rises and royalties. We’re after stories from 1,500 to 4,000 words.
Please submit your story in a double-spaced Microsoft Word document, using a 12-point serif font, such as Georgia or Times New Roman. One inch margins, please. If you are using a pen name, include both your real name and pen name in your email cover letter and on the manuscript itself. Please also include a list of previous publications. If you are a new writer, let us know that you are committed to editing your work.
Finally, please submit your polished story, with the anthology name in the subject line, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sex in New York City: Tales of Pleasure and Perversity in the Big Apple
Editor: Ralph Greco, Jr.
Publisher: Sizzler Editions
Deadline: April 1, 2012
Payment: $25, paid on publication; First North American Anthology Rights
We are looking for stories from new and established authors celebrating one of the busiest-and sexiest-cities on earth. Pulsating with a vibrancy unlike any other location how can one think about New York City without thinking of the orgasm-like rise of steam shooting-up through manholes, men and women jostling their bodies oh-so-close in the dirty bowels of subway cars, of the bright lights and the limos whisking couples who knows where for God knows what?
Writers who live in or have been to The Big Apple now get their chance to take a big bite out of it in any way they choose, using the full expanse of this amazing city’s locations, from Times Square, to the The Village, to clear across to one of the vibrant ethnic enclaves of neighboring boroughs like Brooklyn of Queens.
Sex in New York City, like all Sizzler Editions, is open to submissions featuring all sexual and gender orientations. We seek stories with whatever kind of sex seems true to NYC…and you. From tender romances to the hardest kinks: a naughty canoodle in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral to a high-class dom/client meet in an upper east-side apartment; everything is permissible just as long as NYC is the backdrop. And the folks populating your tales should be as vibrant and unique as this city they have come to play in.

Call for Presenters
Please circulate widely!
Do you have a kinky skill you’d like to share, a BDSM concept you’d like to teach, or a great idea for a leather panel you’d like to organize and speak on? The Lesbian Sex Mafia in New York City, the oldest continuously running women’s BDSM support and education groups in the country, is actively seeking women & trans folks who are identified with the lesbian community to present for our 2012 workshop calendar. Past topics have included piercing and stapling, M/s and D/s relationships, fisting, sensation play, takedowns, single tails, and more.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Friday at the LGBT Community Center in NYC and would gladly include out of town presenters who will be in town on that date.
If you’d like to present for LSM, simply download the Presenter Guidelines which includes information about the program evening schedule and our modest compensation, and fill out the online Presentation Proposal form.
About the Lesbian Sex Mafia
LSM is a support and information group for all women 18 years of age or older, including transexual and intersexed women who live their daily lives as women and all female born transgender people who feel they have a connection with and respect for the women’s community, and who are interested in fantasy and role playing, bondage, discipline, S/M, fetishes, costumes, alternate gender identities and uninhibited sexual expression in a safe, sane, consensual and confidential way. We are not a social service agency; however, we are interested in providing information, encouragement and general support. Our principles are few but basic: confidentiality, consensuality, safety and the right of women to explore their sexuality as they choose. lesbiansexmafia.org for more information.
