Anthology Submissions for Temptation Press


Please Note:

Submission notifications are not sent until after the deadline has been reached.

 

The Rules:

For Anthologies or Contests:

  • Word counts will vary for different anthologies.  Please see the individual anthology call for submission for word counts.
  • The work must not have previously appeared in print anywhere.  (Yes, this includes electronic forms.)  We do utilize a plagiarism checker to verify if a work has been in print before, and we do report plagiarism.
  • All submissions must be in English. Please use Americanized English (example: Color not colour).
    • In dialog, quotation marks must be double and not single marks (example: “You must be joking.” would be correct, ‘you are not joking’ would be incorrect as we are an American press.)
  • Each author may submit up to three (3) unique works per anthology, please submit them seperately.
  • The submission should include a head-shot in .jpg format. Preferably in 300 dpi as we publish in print and electronic versions.
  • A bio is required.
  • Work must be in Microsoft Word or RTF, double spaced, 12 point font, with one-inch margins. Our acquisitions team would be grateful.

What we will not publish – ever:

Temptation Press allows for a fair stretch of leeway when it comes to an author’s creativity, and will consider most story lines, but… we do have standards!

  • Pedophilia.  This means that all characters involved in a sexual situation must be at a bare minimum of 18 years of age. We don’t care what historical period the story is set in.
  • Necrophilia. No sex with a corpse please – of course, Vampires are not technically dead, they are undead.  Snuff scenes will not be accepted either, nor will erotic asphyxiation.
  • Rape. It’s understood that rape may sometimes be used as part of a plot-line, or a character’s backstory, but if it is used for the purpose of stimulating your reader-we will decline your piece. Do not use descriptive rape scenes.
  • Bodily functions. i.e. Golden Showers, toilet play, or anything closely related. Just no.
  • Bestiality. As Vampires are not considered dead, Shape-shifters are not considered beasts.  However, characters can not have relations unless they are in the same form.
  • Incest. This includes step-relatives.
  • Snowballing/Felching. Just no.

If you have any questions please send an email to: info@TemptationPress.com

Thank you for submitting to Temptation Press. We look forward to reading your work!
