Against the Odds

Coming Together: Against the OddsAll behavior is communication. The trick is to figure out just what it's saying. No behavior communicates as clearly or on as many levels as sex. All the physical and emotional senses are engaged. Add the element of intrigue, and the intellect is engaged as well.

Phaze, in partnership with editor, Alessia Brio, is now accepting submissions for Coming Together: Against the Odds, a collection of erotic fiction with a mystery theme.

We're seeking short stories up to 12K words. (There is no minimum length.) Poetry will also be considered. Reprints are welcome as long as the author owns ebook & print rights.

Same sex, ménage, and BDSM submissions are welcome. Absolutely NO bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, bodily waste, incest, underage sex, or positively portrayed rape will be considered.

All proceeds from the sale of this special anthology will benefit Autism Speaks.
