Etopia Press Submission Calls for 2011

Want to know what we’re most interested in seeing this year? Take a look at our new submission calls!

Shift into Summer…

The call of the wild on a cool desert night, the crisp ocean breeze exciting the pack… whatever does it for your shifter heroes or heroines does it for us. Give us your hottest erotic shifter stories, your most romantic tales of conflict and passion, all rolled into your sexiest summer setting and make us howl with joy! Keep them predatory and sexy… the werehamsters may have their own call at a later date. The best of the shorter works will be selected for a print anthology as well as individual e-book release.

Submission Deadline: May 1, 2011

Word Count: 10K through novel length.

Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance featuring male or female Shifters (m/f, m/m, ménage, IR/MC/BBW/OW, you name it)

Format Individual Release and Anthology

Address submissions to: ShiftIntoSummer@etopia-press.net

 

Don’t Turn Off the Light…

We’re looking for traditional and cutting-edge horror, the kind that’s scary, not simply graphic depictions of death. Hauntings, rural backwoods horror, urban noir, the madness that lies within… it’s all good, as long as the mood is dark and there’s plenty of tension to drive the characters to the limit. If it’s a more traditional tale, make sure it hasn’t been done to death (graphic or otherwise). We want character-driven stories that will keep us up into the wee hours…to avoid turning off the light. The best of the shorter works will be selected for a print anthology as well as individual e-book release.

Submission Deadline: June 1

Word Count: 20K and up

Genre: horror, all sub-genres

Theme:  any theme, as long as it’s scary.

Format: Individual Release and Anthology

Address submissions to: DontTurnOffTheLight@etopia-press.net

  

Black Cat Tales…

Or tails… or whiskers… or whatever other black cat bits you can fit into a Halloween-themed story. This call is open to all genres and categories—literary fiction, romance, erotic romance, urban fantasy, horror, SF—whatever best tells your tale involving a black cat as a significant story element. More than that, we’re not going to say. Just make sure they cross our path by June 1, 2011. The best of the shorter works will be selected for a print anthology as well as individual e-book release.

In the Line of Fire…

Do you write your romance splashed with a liberal amount of suspense? Do you think a nice, safe story is just boring without a hefty dose of danger?  Do you love keeping your readers guessing who done somebody wrong?  We’re looking for your hottest romantic suspense stories, heavy on conflict and adventure, with tough-guy heroes to die for and feisty heroines who don’t need anyone to save them, thank you very much. If this sounds like your book, we’re dying to read it. The best of the shorter works will be selected for a print anthology as well as individual e-book release.
