The Pen Is Mightier… By Tiffany Reisz

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – OFFICE-SUPPLY RELATED EROTICA
Hi Lucy! Thanks for letting me guest star blog on Erotica for All to talk about FELT TIPS, my charity anthology of office-supply related erotica. Damn, that’s a lot of adjectives. But I can explain…
First of all, my name is Tiffany Reisz. *waves* I write erotic women’s fiction for MIRA Books and Harlequin Spice. You may have read my Spice Brief Seven Day Loan. If you haven’t, you should (because I say so). On Twitter, I’m mildly notorious for tweeting fantasy projects. I’d love to write a series of boardroom erotica and call it Mergers & Acquisitions. I want to write courtroom erotica and call it The Well-Hung Jury. One day in November I made the mistake of tweeting I wanted to write some office-supply related erotica and call it FELT TIPS. Get it? Felt Tips? Like a pen…is? And you feel it? And it has a tip? Nevermind.
Anywho, this particular tweet/joke of mine garnered a huge outpouring. A whole three people replied and said that needed to be a real thing. There just absolutely had to be office-supply related erotica. The world (well, those three people) demanded it. And so in a spirit of whimsy and doing things that I know my agent and boyfriend would discourage me from doing, I got on my blog and created a call for submissions. Why NOT have an anthology of office-supply related erotica? I couldn’t think of a single reason apart from not having any idea how to do it. The call to submissions had no details in it apart from…
Payment? The Glory
Release date? No idea.
Publisher? No clue but I’ll figure that out later.
Professional, no? But despite this totally ramshackle call for submissions from someone who’s never edited before…the stories started to roll in. Especially once we all decided to make it a charity anthology with all profits going toward an organization that helps outfit classrooms in low-income schools. Just because we’re smut peddlers doesn’t mean we don’t care.
So far I’ve received nineteen stories for FELT TIPS in less than a month’s time from both published and unpublished writers. The stories are hot and funny and full of desk sex, supply closet fondlings, and creative uses of binder clips. Thanks to Lucy we found a publisher who will donate half of their own fees to our cause (thank you House of Erotica!). And thanks to Amber Skye we have a sexy splash/sign up page at http://felttipserotica.com
You too could be a part of the first ever charity anthology of office-supply related erotica. Read the submission guidelines here: http://tiffanyreisz.com/storytime/?p=237
And while writing remember the motto of FELT TIPS…
NO RULES. JUST RULERS. *swat*
