    I shall point my erotica-writing friends at this thread. Thanks!
    Why does everyone want introverts to leave their comfort zone and be talkative, but no one expects the extroverts to be quiet to make that zone comfortable for introverts?

    Teacher's Pet, Volume Two, anthology with a professor and her grad student
    Men in Love, anthology about--hey, you're already there, aren't you?

    That's awesome! Thank you very much for that! We are predominantly in need of stories in the 500-2500 range at this time, but open to great stories that hit on the themes for the anthology. We've received a ton of great submissions and are excited to begin work on the publication!

    Hopefully I'm not too late to this, but I have a horror story that's around 6k, last time I checked. Would it still fit the bill and be accepted, or would it need to be vastly trimmed down to get a chance to fit into the anthology?

    I'm also asking here because a reply would be much easier to find, read, and respond to.

    Ah, I'm very late then. Understandable but, I'm glad it all worked out.
