Submission Call: Contemporary Lesbian Romance Anthology

International Women DayYlva Publishing wants to spread the love a bit. How? Well, we are seeking contemporary lesbian romance stories for an anthology we’d like to publish in January 2014. An anthology full of sinfully sweet romance and amazingly erotic fun.

So, here’s what we’re looking for:

We’re looking for lesbian fiction. All submissions should be either contemporary romance or erotica.

We accept only short stories that haven’t been previously published.

Word count:
We are looking for stories between 4,000 and 12,000 words in length.

Writers whose stories are selected for the anthology will receive a one-time payment of $40 (via PayPal) plus a free e-book of the anthology in each format (epub, mobi, pdf).

The deadline is set for October 15, 2013.

Electronic submissions only. Please send your story as an e-mail attachment (.doc, .docx, or .rtf) to Put “Spread the love” in the subject line of your e-mail. In the body of your e-mail, please include your name, the title and word count of your story, and a two-or-three-sentence summary of your story.

It will take our editors about two weeks to review your submission; then we’ll get back to you.

We are looking forward to receiving your contemporary lesbian romance stories.

    This sounds great. What kind of rights are you looking for? One time or longer? Most anthos only want one time rights but I didn’t see that listed in the call so I wanted to ask. Thanks,

    Hi Beth,
    Thanks for your question.

    The anthology will only be published as an e-book. The term of the contract will be three years and for that period the rights stay with us. After three years you can terminate the contract and the rights are back with you.

    Please let me know if you have further questions.

    Take care
