WHAT WE DON’T WANT

Do not send us straight up porn—sex is fine but character development and story should be the focus, we don’t want sex just for the sake of sex. No glorified or detailed non-consensual sex or sex involving children or animals.

Please note that incomplete submissions will be declined and returned unread.

We are looking for complete manuscripts only that fit the theme and cover. Please do not send us unfinished or unedited manuscript drafts or manuscripts that do not fit the description above. 

No multiple submissions. No simultaneous submissions.
