Submissions for Sex & Sorcery 3 are now closed. Check back later in the year for details of when submissions for Sex & Sorcery 4 will open and please make sure you are familiar with the series before submitting.

What we want:

  • We want erotic epic fantasy stories. Simple, right?
  • Erotic means sex must be integral to the story. Anything goes – from romance to hardcore – as long as it is sexy.
  • Epic fantasy means set in another world. No paranormal romance please. We love elves and orcs but we are particularly interested in unusual and original settings.
  • Stories means stories. We want characters; we want a beginning, a middle and an end.
  • We want stories between 4,000 and 8,000 words. We may take a few stories up to 12,000 but please query first.

What we pay:

  • We pay $0.01 per word for world electronic rights (up to a maximum of $100).
  • We ask for exclusive rights for two years and non-exclusive rights thereafter.

Submissions should be sent as a Word attachment formatted as below. Please include in the covering email: title, author name for publication, word count and PayPal address for payment.

    • We are open to all authors regardless of nationality, we just pay in dollars. We are also open to all pairings, including F/F. There is currently no fixed deadline for submissions but to have the best chance of success you should submit before the end of March.

  5. Peering at the submission details, we’re curious; is there a category for work that fits into the range between 10 and 30k? We know that they can be notoriously hard to push, but figured there’s no harm in asking.

    • Sorry, that is a difficult length: too long for anthologies, too short to publish as a standalone. There is some scope for stories that length but we’d want to have an existing relationship first so we would recommend submitting to Sex & Sorcery and taking it from there.
