Open Calls

My dear friend/editor has open calls for three anthologies (one erotica, two non-erotica). She’s such a great editor to work with. Jessica can help you take your work to the next level because she’s willing to work with you to build a stronger story rather than overwrite your voice.

Here are her open calls…

Wavelengths

Sometimes communication is not as straightforward as we might expect. From body language to Morse code, conveying messages comes in a wide variety of forms. How do we get our message across? Whether you’re talking with other species on this planet or another, we’re looking for your loquacious conversations!  (not erotica–DN)

Sensory Perceptions

Loose your imagination’s libido in this very spec-fic collection of erotica tales. We want plot-focused stories with enrapturing storytelling where the erotica and romance enhance the story rather than being the main goal. Your level of explicitness may vary—the important part is the tale itself. We can’t wait to read your stories!

unrealpolitik

Some of the best speculative fiction stories today have derived from the tumultuous political times of the past from authors seeking to highlight injustice or simply work through their own frustration. We are indeed living in interesting times, locally and globally (and intergalactically?). Whether the subject is government or espionage or even something only tangentially related, we would love to read your stories!

 

 

 

 

Submission Calls (3 anthologies)

Jayhenge Publishing has open submission calls for three anthologies.

 

Steampunk

Due to high demand, we are putting together a steampunk-themed anthology. We’re looking for more than just the goggles-and-gears accoutrements of what we think of as steampunk. The era of the steam engine affected much more than Victorian England, so let yourself be inspired by everything the new and amazing inventions might have touched, from the stratified class systems to the various places colonized, and then allow your imaginations to soar into worlds beyond our own.

Unearthly Sleuths

Crime solving becomes extraordinary when the rules of Planet Earth as we know it don’t apply. If your detective is seeking out clues in distant galaxies or preternatural realms, send us your stories!

Myths, Monsters, Mutations

Who lurks in the dark? What’s that sound? We’re looking for your accounts of dark myths, horror and the macabre to delight and frighten!

None of these anthologies is erotica, but Jessica tells me an erotica anthology is on the horizon. I can tell you from first-hand experience that Jessica is a fantastic editor to work with. I strongly encourage you to consider submitting to her.
