    Pioneering Spirit

    DEADLINE: 1 January 2015 / PUBLICATION: 23 May 2015

    Coming Together and editor Nobilis Reed are seeking submissions of erotic stories with a pioneering theme. Think of the word in any sense you desire. As examples, pioneering can refer to research and engineering in a real-world or science fiction, magical, or steampunk milieu; it can be settlers moving into a previously uncivilized area in a historical, futuristic, or contemporary setting; it can even refer to combat engineers who facilitate troop movements, or the first species appearing in a previously barren environment. Above all else, the word refers to people changing the world by setting an example of a new way of living or thinking, whether in a practical or metaphorical sense.

    The anthology will be dedicated to PG Holyfield, who passed on August 20, 2014 after a brief and vicious battle with cholangiocarcinoma. All proceeds from sale of this anthology will go to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, a research foundation dedicated to collaboration, understanding, research, and education of this rare but deadly disease. PG Holyfield's novel, Murder at Avedon Hill was one of the first "podcast novels" and his work in this area marks him as one of the pioneers of the podcast novel form.

    In keeping with the pioneer theme, we encourage established authors to strike out into new territory when writing for this anthology. Specifically, we are hoping to see submissions from authors whose primary genre is not erotica.

    Due to PG's years of work as an audio podcaster, an audio edition of the anthology is also planned. Donations of assistance with audio recording and editing will be greatly appreciated.

    Stories should be between one thousand and six thousand words. (Stories at the upper end of this range be also be released as single titles to benefit the same charity.) Manuscripts should be in Times New Roman font with 1" margins all around. Attach the RTF file to an email containing pen name, the author's website & social media links, and a brief bio. Exclusivity is not required, but please indicate if the work has been previously published. No simultaneous submissions. Send submissions to outsidethebox [at] eroticanthology [dot] com with SUBMISSION in the subject field.

    This will be the third Coming Together anthology edited by Nobilis Reed. His previous anthologies are Coming Together: In Flux and Coming Together: Arm in Arm in Arm....

    The Good Brother

    In the second book of Samuel, the tragedies of the children of King David unfold. Tamar is raped by her brother Amnon, and the text abandons her shortly thereafter, saying she "lived in her brother Absalom's house, a desolate woman." "The Good Brother" imagines Tamar, Amnon, and Absalom in a modern-day setting, and tells the story of Tamar's halting, stunted attempts at recovery after Amnon's attack, including her troubled and sexually charged relationship with Absalom. (5,500 words)

    + + +

    Coming Together: By the Book is a line of stories which depicts relationships as they are actually portrayed in the Bible. It was inspired by the vehement ranting of anti-gay zealots who profess to know how their Lord wants us all to behave by citing a couple isolated lines of Leviticus from the Christian Bible.

    Sales proceeds will benefit Darkness to Light, which works to end child sexual abuse.

    Treasures: Sommer Marsden

    INTRO:

    Once in a great while, an editor collides with an author who is an absolute joy to work with. One who delivers the goods on time (or even early), one who needs minimal edits and is gracious when changes are necessary, and--in the case of Coming Together--one who is unfailingly generous with her words. Given how hard won my words are to me, the latter is extremely precious.

    Sommer Marsden has been a Coming Together contributor since its first open call way back in 2006. Back when ebooks were the inferior cousins of real books. Before Kindles and Nooks and iPads.

    Sommer was there.

    She has consistently submitted her stories to Coming Together collections ever since. I don't think I've ever turned one away. And why would I? She writes edgy, raw passion. Unapologetic sexuality. It really doesn't matter if the protagonist shares your kinks and triggers. She'll hook you with emotion.

    Sex is extremely difficult to write well. Sommer makes it appear effortless! That said, I'd seek her work in any genre. She spins an engaging tale (tail?) regardless of realm.

    This inaugural collection of Treasures will benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (pancan.org), a charity selected by Ms. Marsden for very personal reasons. Your purchase not only benefits the organization directly, but also supports Sommer indirectly.

    Thank you!
