Falling for You Anthology

 

DCL Publications announces the official Call for Submissions for the Fall 2019 anthology “Falling for You.” DCL is looking for sweet or spicy tales that reflect the beauty of Autumn, for imaginative ‘campfire’ style stories that will hold us captive, and for that ghost story you’ve been itching to write but have been waiting for just the right moment to come along. You control your heat level, but please ensure that any adult scenarios are incorporated as important aspects of your story and are not there just for the sake of being there.

Submissions for “Falling for You” should fall between 3.5k and 19.5k words to be eligible for inclusion in this anthology. Submissions should have clear writing, be plot oriented, and in some way incorporate the themes of Fall and Falling for You.

The deadline for “Falling for You” submissions is Friday, March 29, 2019, by the close of the standard business day.

If you are already a part of the DCL family, you may send your submissions directly to editor Jean Watkins. All other submissions should be emailed to booksubmissions@thedarkcastlelords.net .

Queens of Hearts Anthology

 

Nothing helps melt the wintry ice like a sultry collection of romantic literature, certain to captivate the mind, heart and soul of the reader. DCL Publications announces an open Call for Submissions for our 2019 Valentine’s anthology ‘Queens of Hearts.’

Submissions should be built around a Queen – any Queen, be creative and have fun! – and around the heart (or hearts) that she holds captive. DCL is looking for sweet, sultry, steamy and/or sensual plots that take readers into the world of the story as much as into the characters. Stories should be plot driven, original, and entertaining. Utilize your imagination. Go back in time to a historical period that inspires you. Create new worlds with new definitions of what makes a Queen. Build new cities, or tear down some old ones. The choice is yours; it is your voice that we want to hear. Entrap our minds and make us want more.

DCL Publications is looking for well-written, properly themed stories with developed characters and clear grammatical consistency. Submitted stories are not required to stay within a certain word count, but please keep submissions between Flash, Short, or Novella length. Persons wishing to submit novel-length works should do so separately.

Submissions are not required to remain in a certain heat level. As long as it is well-written and properly developed, you control your heat level.

The deadline for ‘Queens of Hearts’ submissions is Friday, November 16, 2018, by the close of the standard business day.

If you are already a part of the DCL family, you may send your submissions directly to editor Jean Watkins. All other submissions should be emailed to booksubmissions@thedarkcastlelords.net .
