EDIT: WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCED AUTHOR ELLE THORNE AS THE EDITOR OF THIS ANTHOLOGY!
Shifters, the fascinating creatures of legend, with no need to choose between animal or human, they can live and love and both worlds, bringing their inherent wildness to their every encounter.
BURNING BRIGHT is looking for stories exploring the darker side of Shifter romance – these are pairings captivated by kink, besotted with bondage and delighted with discipline. Bring us your Doms and your Dommes, your sweet subs and your sassy ones.
We’re looking for hot and explicit stories of passion and pain. But please, nothing non-consensual, no incest (that INCLUDES STEPBROTHERS!), no minors and no bestiality. Shifters must be in human form when they get it on. Also anything “toilet” oriented is very likely to be rejected. You know what we’re talking about.
This is hot and spicy, but we love romance, so if your pairing can find HEA or HFN we’ll be delighted. But that doesn’t mean a little tragedy or bittersweet longing won’t fit. We just want EMOTION with our kink.
All relationships are welcome, MF, MM, FF, MFM, FMF and beyond. At least one member of the relationship needs to be a shifter – but any creatures including mythical ones are welcome.
Your story can be historical, contemporary or futuristic. We welcome any setting and especially encourage authors writing about non-Anglo or non-white cultures to submit.
The editor for BURNING BRIGHT is romance powerhouse Elle Thorne, who will bring her considerable experience and charisma to the project. We hope to publish in early 2016. Submission deadline is December 31st, 2015.
Submit your stories to anthology (at) coveryourdreams (dot) net with the subject heading “Burning Bright”.
Stories between 2000 and 10000 words accepted. DOUBLE SPACE YOUR ENTRY. Include your name, pen-name if any, email address, country of residence and your word count. Please edit carefully before submitting and include a one or two sentence summary.
