76: Jorin

How many times had I dreamed that Kenet was in my arms? I had long since lost count. And after all the men who had shared my body and touched my skin since last I had seen him, I had begun to doubt my memory of his scent was true.

If it is a dream, let me enjoy it for a while, I thought, as I buried my nose in golden strands and breathed deep. Oh, how my heart ached at that scent, even if imagined.

“Jorin,” he said, his voice sweet as well water to a thirsty man. Continue reading The Prince’s Boy: Chapter 76

75: Kenet

One moment, Lord Solliran had been about to consummate the deed I had fought for so long to stave off. The next moment, he was gone. I raised my head to find him sprawled in front of the large hearth, unmoving. A few wisps of smoke rose from the scorched edges of his thin shirt. I wondered for a moment why no one rushed to tend to their lord, then saw it appeared everyone in the room had been knocked from their feet.

I stood to better survey the scene, and various men also began to rise. “Stay down!” I commanded. “Don’t…” Continue reading The Prince’s Boy: Chapter 75

Call for Submissions: Asexual Romance

Possible Titles: The Romantic Ace; Acethetic
Edited by Victoria Pond

It seems like every romance movie, book, and song out there equates lust with love, and that means some of us are left out. Not everyone feels lust. Not everyone even wants romantic love.

Here’s your chance to talk about romance for the characters uninterested in sex. Give me your space pilots in serious relationships with their sentient ships. Think about how an incubus would patiently court a demi-sexual. Maybe you have a regency fantasy where only a virgin can wield the talisman, and thank goodness we’ve got an adult countess who can step up.

Let’s not define this by what it isn’t. Allosexuality dominates the rest of the media. Here’s a chance for ace pride to shine. Submit your stories from all over the spectra—from science fiction to fantasy, from sex-repulsed to demi-sexual, from romantic to platonic.

This romance anthology celebrates asexuality in all its forms, in all its levels. Maybe your characters will take things to their allosexual conclusions, but maybe they won’t. And, as it ought to be in reality, that’s up to you.

“Ace” puns highly encouraged. (You know: the dogfighting “flying ace” who has a closer-than-lovers arrangement with his mechanic.)

Email your submissions to acethetic.submissions@gmail.com. We do not publish poetry. Stories should generally be between 2500 and 8500 words (though we’re flexible for a great story). Originals only, no reprints. We purchase first rights for inclusion in the ebook anthology for $25, with the additional rights to a print edition later which would also pay $25 should it happen. Authors retain the rights to the individual stories; Circlet exercises rights to the anthology as a whole. Submissions are open now, and close on April 15th.

Call for Submissions: Safe, Sane, Consentacle

Innumerable inquisitive, squirming tentacles reaching, probing, grasping…penetrating. Maybe it’s an alien, maybe its an animate plant, maybe a product of a mad scientist’s lab, or maybe a creature from the depths of the Pacific. Whatever it is, it’s a HOTTIE!

Circlet Press is looking for your stories about mutually enthusiastic and satisfying encounters between human and tentacle monster. Or elf and tentacle monster. Or perhaps even tentacle monster and tentacle monster.

Both fantasy and science fiction stories are welcome; all (non-copyrighted) settings; all genders–current or future; stories can be kinky or (to the extent tentacle sex can be) vanilla.

Though the title is lighthearted, we are also open to sad or melancholy stories.

Email your submissions to circletsubmissions@gmail.com with “Consentacle” in the header.
