ANTHOLOGY: Blood in the Rain 3
EDITOR: Cecilia Duvalle and Mary Trepanier
DEADLINE: May 15, 2017
WORD COUNT: 1500 - 7000
PAYMENT: $75 + 2 print copies

Vampires continue to delight and thrill us. Every culture in the world has their own creature of the night--soul sucking or blood sucking--that make our bodies quiver and tingle.

Now that we're on the third volume of Blood in the Rain, we have a couple of notes. Think outside the box on this. Give us something other than crowded club scenes and self-loathing vampires. Sure, you can include these elements if they bring something new to the table. But, because this book is being designated erotic horror, it's okay for your vampires to be...well...horrific. Charming vampires have their place in this volume, too, but know that we are interested in every kind of vampire your twisted minds can conjure.

Go back in time, forward in time, out in space, into an igloo, or on a boat. Take us somewhere beyond the usual. Most of all, however, send a complete story. The sexual interaction needs to move the story, change the character, or otherwise have a reason beyond "hey, SEXY TIMES." We like it funny, we like it serious, but, most importantly, we like it well-written.

Rights: Story submissions can be previously published, as long as you retain the copyright. If your story is accepted, Cwtch gains non-exclusive right to publish your story in this anthology in print, ebook, and audiobook form. Authors will retain copyright to their stories.

Guidelines: Submit only 1,500-7000 word stories that are not being considered elsewhere. Submit to by attaching a Word .doc or .docx file (no RTF files), double spaced, Times New Roman, black font. Indent half an inch at the start of each paragraph and use double spacing for the entire file; do not add extra lines between paragraphs or use any other irregular spacing. Include your legal name, pseudonym (if applicable), mailing address, email address, AND 50 word-or-under third person bio at the end of your story. Submit your story with the title, byline and bio you would want published if accepted. Make sure to thoroughly proofread your story before submitting.

Please send the story from an email address you check frequently. We will confirm that we have received your submission within 72 hours.

Payment: $75 and 2 copies of the book
Deadline: May 15, 2017
