Call for Submissions!

Seductress: Succubi Erotica
Edited by D. L. King
To be published by Cleis Press
Deadline: October 1, 2011
Payment: $50 and 2 copies of the anthology

D. L. King is looking for stories hot enough to ignite the fires of hell.

She’s beautiful.  She’s enchanting.  She’s mysterious and unfathomable. She’s your fondest dream and your worst nightmare.  She’s sweet and sublimely submissive.  She’s dark and fully in charge.  She’s flirty and she’s vulgar.  She promises safety in her arms but there’s danger in her eyes.  One look, one scent, one taste, one sigh and you’re rock hard or dripping wet.  She’s sex incarnate.

Succubi: sexual vampires, women who steal the life force from their victims—oh, but what a way to go. Some say succubi visit their victims in dreams; others say they seduce them in the flesh.  Whether your succubus is a shape shifter, has permanent bat wings or wears a mini skirt and has legs that go all the way up to her armpits; whether her victims are taken unawares, follow her with glee or scream bloody murder as they come, make your stories hot. (You know what I like, and if you don’t, have a look at The Sweetest Kiss or Carnal Machines for a clue.) As always, I’m relying on you to make me wet!

This anthology is primarily heterosexual, but I’ll consider lesbian stories.  Stories should be between 1,500 and 3,000 words, double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman. Please indent the first line of each paragraph one-half inch and do not include extra lines between paragraphs.  Put your legal name, pen name, mailing address and email address on the first page. Put the word count under the title.  No fancy formatting and do NOT include a cover page. You may submit up to two stories.

Very Important:  If you are using a new PC which saves your document as a .docx, please save your story as a 97-2003 Word Document or I will be unable to open it.  If absolutely necessary, you may send your story as an rtf.  Please send your story to succubusantho@gmail.com.  Subject line should read:  Submission: TITLE.

Original stories only.  If your story has been previously published, please include the title, date and publisher.  You must own the rights to any reprints. Please include a 50-word bio and direct any questions to the above address.

  1. Yay! I'm a big fan of succubi. My submission is on its way. :o)


  2. Oooh! Awesome. I think I'll work on something for this! Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Ooooh, I bookmarked this for work after I finish my submission for Shifting Steam. Thanks, I love having projects!

  4. Oooh - you might tempt me out of my no-short-stories-till-the-novel's-finished stance for this one!

  5. Janine, I know exactly what you mean. I'm saying that too! But, yes, you have to send me something!
