The call for submissions for Fairy Tale Lust closed today and I have to say I’m wildly impressed not only by the number of submissions I received but by the creativity of the authors.  I haven’t had time to read more than a few stories, but just based on the story titles and cover letters I think I can safely say this is going to be a very diverse collection of erotic fairy tales. 

I’m anxious to immerse myself in reading over the next few weeks and I’ll say it again: the hard part is going to be writing the rejection letters.  I know there are going to be more stories that I love than I can possibly include in this book.  So I have my fingers crossed that this collection will do so well I’ll be following it up with a sequel.

Thanks so much to all of you who have submitted stories.  And thanks also to those of you who have sent me encouraging notes during this ongoing process of getting a book from idea to publication.  Fairy Tale Lust isn’t due out until next spring and I still have a long way to go before it’s finished, but the support and enthusiasm of so many writers and readers makes it a pleasure to put in the time.  And we all know time flies when you’re having fun!  wink

    Have a beautiful time reading the submissions and continuing with the process, Kristina.  I really, really wanted to submit a fairy tale to you for consideration for this, and somehow it just did not come together.  Maybe if you do a sequel I will get it in line by then!  Anyway, have a lovely time editing your first anthology.  smile

    Thanks so much, Emerald!  I hope I will continue to edit for Cleis, so perhaps I’ll see something from you next time. smile  I do love your writing.

  • Your blog is the cutest thing ever! Wish I’d thought of a title like that. Good luck with culling through all the entries. Have to say I haven’t had so much fun writing something in a long time. I hope it does pave the way for a volume 2!
