Better Bondage Erotica (Redux)


I've been hinting that I have new books coming. And now I'm going to flash you with one of them. Yes, I've signed to edit a brand-spanking new bondage collection. I had tried to put one together over a year ago, but sometimes the best climaxes are the ones you work the hardest for. This bondage antho will be published by Cleis Press — due to come out about a decade after the first bondage collection I edited for Cleis. Pretty cool, yes?

So here (once more) is my call...

I'm ready. I'm willing. I'm waiting. I want better bondage stories. The ones that peel back the very skin of your average bondage story and delve deep into the BDSM soul. Send me the stories that hurt. The ones that turn the volume way up. The glossy type that lace to the knees. (I don't like 14 eyelet, btw. I like 20.) Give me chrome. Give me hardware. Cuff me down and force me sit in my chair to soak up every last word on the page.

My standard no-nos apply: no incest, no animals, no underage. Aside from that, I don't want gore. I don't want non-con. And I don't want bleak. If you've read my books, you know my style. If you haven't—hey man, why haven't you read my books?

Word count: 3000-5000 (but I'm a flexible little sprite—if you wow me with a shorter one, or draw me in with a longer one, I'll take it).

Deadline: February 1, 2012
Payment: $75 (for non-exclusive rights)
Publisher: Cleis Press

Questions: msalisontyler at yahoo dot com—and that's where you should send your piece, too.

Directions: Paste your sub into the body of your email. If I want it as a different format, I'll get back to you. Promise.

Bio: Shoot me one that is 50-100 words. Include your favorite form of bondage in your bio, please.


If you subbed previously for this collection, don't worry. I still have your story. If you've sold the piece elsewhere but want to send me something new, go for it. Just let me know.

XXX,
Alison
