Call for Submissions
It might be HOT, HOT, HOT outside but at Circlet Press we’re already thinking autumn thoughts and you know what that means!

As in years past, these microfictions will be posted on our website during the month of October leading up to Halloween. Payment is $5 and you retain all rights.
Dressed in Black: Erotic Tales of Edgar Allan Poe
Deadline: February 15th, 2018
Details: Murder. Revenge. Madness. These are the hallmarks of Edgar Allan Poe’s fiction. But so are love, longing, and loss. It may seem strange, at first blush, to compile a collection of erotica inspired by Poe’s work. Much of his writing explores themes of death and isolation. But gothic fiction has long been ripe ground for examining human sexuality and Poe’s work in particular is overdue for just such an agitation.
Circlet Press is looking for erotic horror flash fiction to be published on our website during the month of October.
Deadline is October 1st and stories must be under 1500 words.
Payment is $5 per story and multiple submissions are okay.
Our company publishes audiobook editions of erotica- or romance-themed books that are currently available in ebook and/or print formats. We are seeking submissions by Indie authors and authors who own the audiobook rights to their books. Both established and new authors are encouraged to submit well-written stories within clearly defined genres that are not too esoteric (minimum 10,000 words). Please follow this link for submission instructions: http://www.wordwooze.com/submissions.html

“Musical notes and rhythm were first acquired by the male or female progenitors of mankind for the sake of charming the opposite sex.” – Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man
Musicians are a unique breed. They are diligent, mysterious, talented, and sometimes irritating with their artistic tendencies. Still, no matter what instrument they play or type of music they produce, they are irresistible. Music is the universal language of humans, and we always respond to it.
