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.
