Thank you so much!
Triskaidekaphilia is the love of the number thirteen. It’s also the name of our anthology series which explores the more shadowy corners of romance and erotica. We are incredibly excited to announce the second book in the series – Ravenous – which will be edited by Ariel Jade and be about all things vampiric!
Dark. Brooding. Tortured. Sexy.
Vampires are a mystery, morphing through history from maligned villains to sparkling saviors and back again. They can be the ultimate bad boys, the supreme seductresses, or the evil monsters. They fascinate and repel us at the same time. What other creature can steal into your bedroom in the depths of the night to stalk or protect? What other ancient being is so accessible yet so powerful? What other enigma is desired as much as feared?
Ravenous will explore the paradox that are vampires. We want your romantic stories where vampire men and women, noble or troubled, are worthy of love and hungry for their happily ever after. We want sexy stories about vampire hunters who track down the beasts and, while neck deep in the war against the undead, find comfort and happiness in each other. We want a far future planet populated by only vampires; we want a Victorian city re-imagined with vampires as a dying breed; we want a current world where vampires and humans live in harmony and peace. We want all of that and more—let your imagination run wild.
All heat levels accepted, although plot is important if you want to survive the slush!

Black Rabbit is calling for submissions for its first issue. The journal aims to publish prose, art, and essays that are serious in subject and theme, self-aware in style, flexible, smart, and above all engaging. Our editors are always impressed by originality and personality, are partial to fashionable nihilism, and like to feel as if they are connected to an artist or author. Black Rabbit publishes only a very few, very short pieces only very rarely, and as such is able to offer payment despite being privately funded by poor people and staffed by fiscal degenerates.
Seeks one fiction piece 900 words or fewer. Genre and content guidelines are loose, though our fiction editor is inclined to take work with a literary tone more seriously than work without it. Creativity and experimentation are encouraged in all cases.
Seeks one persuasive or personal essay 250 words or fewer. Engaging, intelligent, and appropriately relaxed tone is encouraged.
Seeks one non-musical abstract sound clip under or around 90 seconds long. Sound collage, dramatic scenes, monologue, or pseudo-music.
And one work of abstract expressionist painting, drawing, or collage.
Payment: $25 per piece. Deadline: January 31, 2017. Full submission guidelines here.
