So, here we are, guys and ta-da! I’ve been sitting on this news for a bit, and I have to say I was so good at acting like nothing at all was happening. But here we are and I’m much too excited to clutter up this blog post with extra words, so, here is MY VERY FIRST –
Call for Submissions:
Can’t Get Enough
Editor: Tenille Brown
Publisher: Cleis Press
Deadline: February 15, 2013 (earlier submissions preferred and encouraged)
Word Count: 1,500-3,000
Payment: $50 and 2 copies of the anthology upon publication

Tenille Brown is currently seeking submissions for her upcoming anthology, tentatively titled Can’t Get Enough.
Have you ever been so hot for your lover that you decided not to go to the dinner you were invited to? Or maybe you got so turned on watching her work the room at a party you had to duck into a coat closet during cocktails. Remember the time you called in sick to work because you simply couldn’t put down your vibrator?
Can’t Get Enough will contain just these types of stories. An anthology filled with tales of insatiable desire, authors will bring forth stories brimming with sex, kinks and fetishes that you simply can’t get enough of, Sex you want so much that you can’t make it home without having to swing by a shady motel or pull off into a vacant lot.
What I’m looking for:
I want well-written, collar clutching stories that embody and drive home the theme “can’t get enough.” I want stories that are smart, sassy, sexy, risqué and downright kinky. In this anthology I want to see it all, a variety of ages, cultures, pairings and voices. I am open to submissions from people of all genders.
Send me stories that are jaw dropping and written outside of the box. Give me characters who are soft and passionate, but don’t leave out those who are rough and dark. Above all, give me well-drawn characters who want it so bad and so much that they’ve got to have it in different places, in different positions and at every turn.
Whether your character ambushes her husband at the office, or he explores the clubs looking for a piece of strange, show me that they need it, have to have it, and can’t get enough.
The standard rules apply: no incest, rape, underage characters or bestiality.
Original stories are preferred, but I may consider reprints. No simultaneous submissions.
Please make sure submissions include your name (legal and pen), mailing address, phone number and email address in the top left corner of the page. Send it as a Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with Can’t Get Enough (Story Title) in the subject line. Include a 50-word bio with your submission. You will receive an email acknowledgement of receipt within 72 hours.
