Call for Submission Reminder

June 28, 2012

The deadline is approaching for submissions to the Don’t Try This at Home anthology on July 16.  This one should be a lot of fun, and honestly, who doesn’t have a bad sex story to tell?

Don’t Try This at Home
Edited by Anne Regan

Bonked heads. Rough carpet. Burned dinner. Awkward silence. Bitten lips. Startling length. Spilled wax. Pinched fingers. Shattered wineglass. Closet quickie. Flat souffle. Broken bedframe. Shower sex. Overzealous spanking. Embarrassing ex. Lost wallet. Terrible taste. Sore shoulders. Noxious odor. Absent date. Unbelievable girth. Kitchen canoodling. New toy. Stained sheets. Backward compliment. Stifling pillow. Locked handcuffs. Aching ass. Missing keys. Torn seams. Wrenched back. Angry cat. Overeager pass. Uncooperative zipper.
Something always goes wrong in real life. Fortunately, love blunts the edges so that romance trumps adversity.

Editor’s Note: Humor a plus, no rape/nonconsensual situations, contemporary genre only.
Submission Deadline: July 16, 2012.
Publication Date: October 2012.
Single-book anthology story length: 3,500 – 12,000 words.
