Afternoon Pleasures: Erotic Stories for Gay Couples
Publisher: Cleis Press
Editor: Shane Allison
Deadline: February 2, 2011
Payment: $60/story

With the political climate the way it is in regard, or should I say in disregard to gay rights, I can’t think of a better time to do this anthology. I want to celebrate not only gay erotica, but relationships, partnerships, marriage and male on male coupling. Think of  steamy sex between the sheets, couples on their honeymoon in an exotic designation, sultry one night stands, or hot hookups in hotel rooms. Take your wildest fantasies and raunchiest desires and put them on paper. The book will include everything from threesomes, sex toys, public sex, BDSM, fetishes, fantasies and more. Use your imagination. I’m especially looking for a range of sexual diversity and adventure.

How to submit: Send double spaced Times or Times New Roman 12 point black font Word document with pages numbered (in rtf format.) Include ALL contact information and a bio on the first page of your story. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (regular double spacing, do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). US grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required. The minimum word count is 2k to 5k being the max. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you’d like to be credited as. There is no particular theme for this anthology so anything goes.

Please send your stories to sdallison01@hotmail.com, with “Afternoon Pleasures” in the subject line.

Frat Boys: Gay Erotic Stories
Editor: Shane Allison
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: February 2, 2011
Payment: $60/story and 2 copies of the book on publication

Earlier submissions are truly welcome as I work on the books on a rolling basis so theres more space at the beginning than near the end, though all stories submitted by the deadline will be considered. Frat Boys is open to gay male authors only for this anthology. I’m not accepting reprints.

Editor Shane Allison is looking for erotic stories that cater to the theme of frat boys in all their rock-hard glory. I have always wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of a frat house filled with young, horned up college boys. Surely, you have too. So for this anthology, let your naughtiest, nastiest frat fantasies ooze out on the page. I’m not just looking for scenerios of naive pledges going through tawdry ritual hazing, or drunken one nights stands during a kegger, but stories that take the frat boy out of his comfort zone. Think of a gay porny version of Revenge of the Nerds and Animal House, pledges willing to do anything, or college presidents black mailed by smart-aleky frat brothers. Group scenerios in which there is more than coupled characters involved is always welcome. I am looking for hot plots and even hotter character development. Don’t shy away from new erotic territory. Creativity and diversity of story lines are key. This book is geared toward a gay male audience. Kink, sex toys, exotic locations/scenarios welcome as long as there is an element erotica. Erotic romance is also welcome.

How to submit: Send double spaced Times or Times New Roman 12 point black font Word document with pages numbered (RTF) of 1,500 to 5,000 words. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (regular double spacing, do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). US grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required. Include your legal name (and pseudonym if applicable), mailing address, and 50 word or less bio in the third person to fratboysanthology@gmail.com. If you are using a pseudonym, please provide your real name and pseudonym and make it clear which one you’d like to be credited as.
Deadline: February 2, 2011
