Deep Desires Press is Calling for Submissions


Deep Desires Press is a new publisher of erotica and high-heat-level erotic romance. They focus on quality rather than quantity and would much rather have a handful of top-notch stories than a full catalogue of mediocre books. Their main goal is to excite the reader, to take their imagination into the most erotic of scenarios. Authors will earn 50% royalties (after the vendor takes its cut) and will receive full editing, cover art, and marketing support from Deep Desires Press. Submissions are expected to be well-written, well-edited, and reasonably error-free.

They are seeking all genres and subgenres of erotica and erotic romance. This includes contemporary, paranormal, LGBTQ+, BDSM, historical, sci-fi, fantasy, etc., stories featuring any pairing РMF, MM, FF, group/m̩nage/multiple partners, and are inclusive of trans*-identified characters.

While they are open to any and all submissions that meet the criteria of this Call for Submissions, they are particularly keen on submissions that reflect real life, including, but not limited to, multi-racial casts of characters, accurate depictions of LGBTQ+ relationships and sex, and settings outside of Canada and the USA.

They will not accept submissions containing underage characters in sexual situations, bestiality, necrophilia, yellow play, brown play, incest, pseudo-incest, non-con, dub-con, or rel-con.

Authors are expected to have at least two mediums for self-promotion, such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, newsletter, Pinterest, blog, website, Google+, etc. When submitting, please include relevant links in your query letter. In the case of a newsletter, please include the current number of subscribers.

When it comes to Rights, Deep Desires Press will seek ebook, print, and audio rights from the author. However, at present, they are expecting to publish in ebook format only. Contracts are for three years from publication, renewed on an annual basis thereafter.

They are primarily looking for new works only. However, if your work has been previously published and you currently hold full rights, they will consider these works on a case-by-case basis.


For more information and submission details on Deep Desires Press, please visit their Website.

The Three Body Trilogy by Cixin Liu Book Trailer

Published on Oct 28, 2016

With The Three-Body Problem, English-speaking readers got their first chance to experience the multiple award-winning and bestselling Three-Body Trilogy by China's most beloved science fiction author, Cixin Liu. Three-Body was released to great acclaim including coverage in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. It was also named a finalist for the Nebula Award, making it the first translated novel to be nominated for a major SF award since Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities in 1976.

Now this epic trilogy concludes with Death's End. Half a century after the Doomsday Battle, the uneasy balance of Dark Forest Deterrence keeps the Trisolaran invaders at bay. Earth enjoys unprecedented prosperity due to the infusion of Trisolaran knowledge. With human science advancing daily and the Trisolarans adopting Earth culture, it seems that the two civilizations will soon be able to co-exist peacefully as equals without the terrible threat of mutually assured annihilation. But the peace has also made humanity complacent.

Cheng Xin, an aerospace engineer from the early 21st century, awakens from hibernation in this new age. She brings with her knowledge of a long-forgotten program dating from the beginning of the Trisolar Crisis, and her very presence may upset the delicate balance between two worlds. Will humanity reach for the stars or die in its cradle? Find out more at http://us.macmillan.com/deathsend/cix..

How Times have Changed When It Comes to Meeting A Soul Mate by Vivienne Diane Neal

Years ago, if you wanted to meet someone for love, romance or marriage, there were many ways to accomplish this.

My mother, who will turn 92 this year, talked about her dating days. You either met someone through friends, family members, places of worship, at parties, dances or social events, face to face. This is not to say that meeting a man or woman through these channels has disappeared along with the dinosaurs. But if your preferences are to meet someone through these channels today, you would probably be considered ‘old school.’

Then you have the mail-order bride services, matchmaking enterprises, singles’ magazines, and newspapers that became the craze. Of course meeting through these methods was nothing new. Historically, people have met through these various means.

The explosion of online dating has taken meeting people to a whole new level. Today, there are ways to meet or date someone without ever leaving your home. If folks lead a busy life and don’t have the time to actually meet someone through the above-mentioned means, don’t worry; help is on the way.

Before the explosion of the Internet, people did most of their communication on the telephone or through written love letters; now you can demonstrate your true feelings by texting or sexting on cell phones, mobile devices, smartphones, in chat rooms, or on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It all boils down to choices as to how one wishes to meet someone, but until someone comes up with another technique for meeting and dating, online dating, without physically being with someone, will not be going anywhere and will be one of the options for so many lonely people.
