Call for Submissions: Beauty and the Beast erotica anthology

Call for Submissions: A Beastly Affair (Beauty and the Beast Anthology)
edited by J. Blackmore

Deadline: January 15, 2017

Beauty and the Beast might be the most erotic of all fairy tales. It’s about the confluence of fear and desire. It’s about the terrifying transformations that can occur when you are drawn inexorably to another. And it’s about the transcendence of self that can come from an act of love. It seems sad that there aren’t more erotic versions of this tale, and we at Circlet Press aim to fix that! We’d like erotic stories inspired by BatB, and we’re not picky about gender/sexuality/number of protagonists. Please note, however, that while shifters are fine, bestiality is not. We are all about consensual sex here.

Five classic fairy tales reemerge as deliciously dark erotica stories with a BDSM twist. These stories describe the many diverse faces of bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism in sexy encounters ranging from haunting to healing, and painful to playful. You’ll discover .how a witch really likes to punish naughty interlopers, why Beauty might love her beast more than the prince, how to produce handy bruises when a pea just won’t do the trick–and more. Ranging from present day to “once upon a time” settings, each story offers a fresh perspective to both legend and BDSM.

Many people know that today’s idea of fairy tales is a far cry from the darker, original versions. Like a Thorn explores this underbelly of the fairy tale through the many faces of BDSM. Far from run-of-the-mill handcuffs and dungeons, this diverse palette of tales features BDSM as a vehicle for unorthodox moods, relationships, and dilemmas. Mari Ness’ haunting “Cinder Feet” tells us just how high a price Cinderella might have had to pay for not making it home by midnight, yet how worthy that price might be. Next up is “The Princess and Peony” by Mercy Loomis, a charming romp between a princess and her part-time maid, full-time lover who plot to produce princess-ly bruises with a sexier method than sleeping on a pea. Kieran Dewhurst’s “The Last Mistress of the Chatelaine” tells of the sweeping yet down-to-earth romance between the dread Bluebeard and his seventh wife, who uses spunk and sense to help her husband face his sins head-on with a deliciously brutal punishment. “That Wicked Witchcraft” by Sunny Moraine follows, a present-day story in which a modern witch discovers two teenage thieves in her house–and comes close to eating them for dinner after she ties them up. Finally, Shanna Germain’s lyrical “Skin Deep” tells of a controversial Belle: one who didn’t go to the beast as his saving grace, but to revel with him (and often over him) in the darkness of the enchanted castle and the painful price he must pay for her affections. These imaginative retelling captures the complex psychology, emotion, and harmony between pleasure and pain present in every BDSM encounter–and every tale is titillating enough to become any grown-up’s first choice for a bedtime story.

Includes the stories:
Cinder Feet by Mari Ness
The Princess and Peony by Mercy Loomis
The Last Mistress of the Chatelaine by Kieran Wyn Dewhurst

Long ago, the Raven-Goddess Morrigan bore nine sons; each of them was gifted by their mother with the ability to change their shape and fly as ravens. Their mother charged them with the task of protecting the people of Eire, and gave them each another gift — the ability to recognize their one true mate.

Niall, the youngest of the nine, believes his mate lost forever, and discovers how wrong he is when he is taken captive by Arlaith, a power-mad woman who seeks to overthrow the High King. Arlaith’s plans unleash an ancient evil that threatens the people, the land itself, and any hope of happiness that Niall and his brothers might have.

The path to finding a mate isn’t always easy. The brothers soon discover that if they want to find the ones with whom they’ll spend the rest of forever, they’re going to need more than their mother’s gift — that is, assuming that they can manage to survive long enough to defeat an undead monster with a taste for immortal blood.

And now, an excerpt from PRINCES OF AIR:

In ages past, the gods and goddesses of ancient Eire walked the wide world, dallying with mortals and meddling in their affairs, causing wars and ending them, making alliances and breaking them, playing fidchell with living pieces. Some of these immortals, for amusement or out of boredom, chose to procreate with their especially favored mortals. Thus there came to be in Eire a race of demigods, who lived as part of the world and yet apart from it. Continue reading Princes of Air by Elizabeth Schechter
