Submissions are NOW CLOSED for SAVOR: The Longest Night Anthology. Release date is set for 03.13.2013. Please use the submission guidelines below to submit a story for SAVOR part 2.
More than erotica, SAVOR 2 is a collection of short stories about the beauty of love. Submissions should not include explicit language and over-the-top obscenities that describe a sexual encounter. Instead, it should have a strong plot, an actual build up to an eventual night of passion, and very likable qualities about the hero and heroin. Poets: Stories with a poetic flow will be considered, as long as the voice of the characters remain real and not forced. We are looking for cutting edge "romantica" stories that don't read like unedited street lit that is riddled with sex.
If you think you have what it takes to help us produce a new voice in romance/erotica literature, read the guidelines below and submit your story by the deadline to firstname.lastname@example.org with SAVOR 2 in the subject line.
Genre: Romantica (no hardcore pornography or beastiality please).
Story length: 5,000 - 7500 words.
Reprints: No reprints accepted. Please no stories that have previously been published or posted on the Internet; fresh new stories only.
Payment: $75 US. In addition, accepted submissions will receive two (2) complimentary copies of the book. Writers may also purchase copies from Nayberry Publications at a discounted rate.
Incentives: For contributing one story to the anthology, you will receive publicity and your work showcased to our reading audience. You will have the opportunity to participate in book signings, release parties, and festivals that promote SAVOR. The book will be highly publicized and being a part of this project puts your name in front of thousands of readers.
Requirements: Each contributor will be encouraged to promote and contribute to the bottom-line success of the anthology. Specific requirements will be agreed upon before acceptance into the anthology.
Rights: Nayberry Publications will retain all copyrights and publishing rights for reprints of the book as a collection. You retain rights to your individual story, however, we ask that no reprints of it be made within the first year of publication.
