Call for Submissions: Bottoms Up (spanking erotica)

Surprisingly, the stories have not been rolling in for my new spanking book Bottoms Up. So I’m opening up the call – all details below. Deadline is July 14th, so get writing!

If you need inspiration, here’s a photo of my ass by Bob Schaffer (panties by Victoria’s Secret) circa October 2006:

Public Call for Submissions

Bottoms Up: More Red-Cheeked Erotica
Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel
To be published by Cleis Press in 2009

Editor Rachel Kramer Bussel ( is looking for erotica stories on her favorite topic: spanking! I want creative, original spanking stories in a variety of settings using all sorts of implements. Spanking as part of roleplay, discipline, adventure, foreplay, etc. are fair game. The book will be primarily heterosexual, with a mix of male and female spankers and spankees, though there will be some lesbian/gay/bisexual content included. I’d especially like stories that aren’t run-of-the-mill but that are believable/realistic. The more creative, the better, though I tend not to like the sci fi/fantasy genres. Humor is acceptable as long as the stories are also arousing (see L. Elise Bland’s “Every Good Boy Deserves Favors in Naughty Spanking Stories from A to Z for an example).

Unusual settings/scenarios, a variety of spanking implements, use of sex toys/bondage, group scenarios, and public spanking scenes are all encouraged. Most of all, I want stories that truly eroticize spanking in every way possible. Stories can include sex as well as spanking but don’t have to if the plotline and spanking are done right. All characters should be over 18, and no incest or bestiality. To get a taste of what I like, please consult Naughty Spanking Stories from A to Z 1 and 2 (Pretty Things Press). Original stories only; no reprints.

Payment: Contributors will receive $50/story and 2 copies of the anthology on publication in 2009. How to submit: Send double spaced Times New Roman 12 point font Word document OR RTF of 2,000-4,000 word story along with your legal name (and pseudonym if applicable), mailing address, and 50-75 word bio to spankingantho at – make sure you indent at the start of each paragraph and do not add extra lines between paragraphs. Those who do not submit in this format and include this information will not be considered. Authors may submit ONE story only; do not send more than one! If you want to make sure I’ve received your submission, please state that in your cover letter. Send only the final version of your story; do NOT submit a draft or unfinished version only to later submit an updated version. If for some reason it is impossible to send your story as a Word document or RTF attachment, please paste it into
the body of your email.

You can expect to hear from me by December 2008 at the latest. Any questions about this anthology should be sent to spankingantho at

Deadline: July 14, 2008

    I don’t normally write about spanking (when I write at all, that is)… but that picture is wonderfully inspiring ;-).
