Because Jamaica Layne is the editor for this anthology. Ravenous hired me to edit the anthology, collect and review submissions, etc. This is what they do with most of their anthologies.

Sakamonda - I will submit a piece to you. Should finish it tonight, a week with the readers and edits. You'll have something mid-month.

Is there a link to a web site with submission guidelines, taboo list, rights of ownership and such? Are those the only anthologies open?

Alas, I'm--pun intended--screwed.

I decided to jump in with both feet last night and subbed an erotic horror with a non-HEA.

Oh, well. Good luck, everyone else!

I'll still take a look at it Callalilly. Or you could rework the ending and resubmit if you like.

Thank you! Please look at it as-is and let me know. I can see my way to a possible different ending, but it's your call.

OK - So, I meant to wait for feedback on the Sex and Politics piece, but I enjoyed myself enough with that one, that I'll have one for Sex and Science too.

I hope they are well received.

Sent mine today, in a 30-second window of thinking it was good enough. Of course, now that window's closed again and I'm imagining you slapping your forehead over having to read it.

Sorry!

Maryn, not really sorry

Have received oodles of subs from many top erotica authors from all over the world, so getting into this anthology will be super-competitive.

Are there likely to be any more anthologies along these lines on other themes? If so, is this the best place to look for sub guidelines, or on the Ravenous Romance website?

You can look at the Ravenous Romance blog for the latest anthology guidelines:
ravenousromance.blogspot.com. There are a few new calls for subs there. I post guidelines here when I'm editing an anthology, but not all the editors do that.

Thanks for the info. I admit, I didn't find the sub guidelines at first glance, but I just missed them on the About page.
