I did a search and did not find an existing thread. Apologies if I just missed it.

I found a call for submissions from Forbidden Lust (forbidden-lust.com). For the anthologies they pay a flat rate of .0075 per word, for three year exclusive rights.

Forgetting that a 5k short would net $37.50, isn't the three year exclusive thing kind of odd? It seems that they could reprint, repackage and sell a lot of times in 36 months. Are first-rights not the more common method, rather than a set time period?

The contract for general submissions is 50% net royalties and a seven year contract.

Is it me, or are those crummy terms? Has anyone had actual experience with this venture?

Yes, that's the one.

I couldn't find where they had previously published anthologies.
