DEEP DESIRES PRESS: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Call for Submissions

Deep Desires Press is a new publisher of erotica and high-heat-level erotic romance. We focus on quality rather than quantity – we would much rather have a handful of top-notch stories than a full catalogue of mediocre books. Our main goal is to excite the reader, to take their imagination into the most erotic of scenarios. We expect to launch in the winter of 2016/2017 and are currently seeking submissions in the categories listed below.

Authors will earn 50% royalties (after the vendor takes its cut) and will receive full editing, cover art, and marketing support from Deep Desires Press. Submissions are expected to be well-written, well-edited, and reasonably error-free.

First, a few general details: 

Genres: We are seeking all genres and subgenres of erotica and erotic romance. This includes contemporary, paranormal, LGBTQ+, BDSM, historical, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.

Pairings: We are seeking stories featuring any pairing – MF, MM, FF, group/ménage/multiple partner, and we are inclusive of trans*-identified characters.

Wish List: While we are open to any and all submissions that meet the criteria of this Call For Submissions, we are particularly keen on submissions that reflect real life, including, but not limited to, multi-racial casts of characters, accurate depictions of LGBTQ+ relationships and sex, and settings outside of Canada and USA.

Banned Content: We will not accept submissions containing underage characters in sexual situations, bestiality, necrophilia, yellow play, brown play, incest, pseudo-incest, non-con, dub-con, or rel-con.

Social Media and Self-Promotion: Authors are expected to have at least two mediums for self-promotion, such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, newsletter, Pinterest, blog, website, Google+, etc. When submitting, please include relevant links in your query letter. In the case of a newsletter, please include the current number of subscribers.

Rights: Deep Desires Press will seek ebook, print, and audio rights from the author. However, at present, we are expecting to publish in ebook-format only. Contracts are for three years from publication, renewed on an annual basis thereafter.

New Content: We are primarily looking for new works only. However, if your work has been previously published and you currently hold full rights, we will consider these works on a case-by-case basis.

What we’re looking for: 

Short Stories

Length: 5,000 – 10,000 words
Genre: Erotica
Need: High

Details: We are seeking erotica short stories that feature at least one intense sex scene, as well as an engaging framing story. In particular, we are looking for stories that contain series potential from authors who can maintain a fairly regular output. If your story has series potential and you know where subsequent stories will venture, please include this in your query letter.

Novellas

Length: 10,001 – 25,000 words
Genre: Erotica, Erotic Romance
Need: High

Details: We are seeking novellas that feature multiple sex scenes with an engaging storyline. Erotic romance novellas must have a “happily ever after” or “happy for now” ending. While we would prefer stories with series potential, this is not necessary.

Novels

Length: 25,001 words and up
Genre: Erotica, Erotic Romance
Need: Low

Details: We are primarily focusing on short stories and novellas, but we are always open to a novel-length manuscript that catches our attention. Erotic romance novels must have a “happily ever after” or “happy for now” ending.

How to submit: 

Please query via email to submissions(at)deepdesirespress(dot)com, following the guidelines below:

In the body of your email, please include a brief query letter outlining who you are, what your book is about, the length of your book, your plans for sequels (if any), and relevant social media links. For novellas and novels, please also include a synopsis of your work in the body of your email, below your letter.

Please attach your story, novella, or novel to the email as a Word file (doc or docx). Documents should be double-spaced with one-inch margins and in Times New Roman 12-point font.

At present, response time is within one to two weeks.

Can Brave New World’s Sensual Cinema Turn Us on Today? My latest on Future of Sex!

It was a lot of fun to revisit one of my favourite books—through a different lens for Future of Sex! When I read Brave New World in high school, I do not recall sex being such a significant focus of our studies. This isn’t really surprising, we delved much more into the ideas around soma than we did The Feelies. However, the thought of a moviegoing experience that included physical sensation seems particularly prescient considering our current more to 4D, VR and beyond.

But it is key to not let it all go too far to your head so that you stop listening to your partner or lover—especially in bed.

Thank you for reading this series of the 7 Deadly Sex Sins and many thanks to Cara Sutra for running these posts on her site!
