NEW RELEASE: Her Own Devices by Lisabet Sarai

Her Own DevicesFans of beautiful prose, rejoice! Ladylit is proud to present Her Own Devices by Lisabet Sarai. The extraordinarily talented Lisabet has chosen her nine favourite stories of lesbian desire and put them together in this beautiful collection. Some of them will make you smile, some will make you wipe away a tear. And others will have you looking at some household objects in a whole new light. Enjoy!

Here’s the blurb
In Her Own Devices, Lisabet Sarai collects her favorite stories of lesbian desire into a single volume. Meet Ally, former gang member, who fears losing her identity along with her tattoos in the skilled hands of laser technician Luisa. Get to know butch firefighter Wilhemina “Billie” Macdonald, struggling to recover from the disastrous accident that killed her best buddy, with the help of a rather unconventional psychotherapist. Lick your lips at Goth rock chick Mina, barely into her twenties but brazen as sin, and velvet-clad, cigar-smoking Silicon Valley siren Dr. Marta Hausman.

Each of these nine luscious tales will introduce you to distinctively different women, who all demonstrate that, left to her own devices, a woman can find passion, comfort, love, healing or whatever she needs, in the arms of another woman.

Call for Submissions: First

We are very happy to be teaming up with editor Cheyenne Blue again to put together another sizzling lesbian erotica anthology. Please find all the details below.

First (working title)
Editor: Cheyenne Blue
Deadline: 24 April 2015
Payment: US$40.00 plus 1 copy of e-book and paperback
Rights: First worldwide digital rights and print rights.
Preferred length: 2500 – 5000 words

Cheyenne Blue is seeking fictional stories of lesbian passion about first experiences. While I will be including stories of sexual firsts, including first lesbian encounter and first experience of a particular sexual act, I am especially after stories that look beyond this with imagination and flair. I would like to see stories where the sex happens as an integral part of another first, whether it’s the first day in a new job, the first time overseas, breaking the law, or skinny dipping. How about a first experience of sex in zero G in space, or a near death experience on the battleground of a past war? Show me the marvel, wonder, joy, and pride of new experience, the accomplishment, or even the fear or despair. I welcome stories of emotional firsts: the first time in love, the first time that hate translates to sex, the first time with a new partner after a break up.

Above all, Cheyenne wants strong, complete tales that are more than just a sex act. This is not an anthology of true confessions, so stories do not need to be written in first person. For examples of the type of stories and writing Cheyenne is looking for, check out her previous anthology, “Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire”.

Please note that the usual no-nos apply: no incest / underage sex / rape / necrophilia / bestiality / scat. No poetry please.

Unpublished stories strongly preferred, although a couple of reprints might be used. Reprints must be solely owned by the author.

US English. Please submit a double-spaced Microsoft Word document, using a 12-point serif font, such as Georgia or Times New Roman. One inch margins. If using a pen name, include both real and pen name on the manuscript.
Send your story as a .doc or .rtf file attachment to Cheyenne Blue at firstantho@gmail.com. Please include “First” and your story title in the subject line.
In the body of the email please include your legal name, pseudonym, a short bio, and previous publication information if the story is a reprint.

Established authors welcomed, newcomers encouraged.

All submissions acknowledged within 3 days and acceptances notified by 1 June 2015.

About the editor: Cheyenne Blue is the editor of “Forbidden Fruit: stories of unwise lesbian desire” also from Ladylit, and has edited short stories through to novels. Her erotic fiction has been included in approximately 100 erotic anthologies since 2000. Under her own name she has written travel books and articles, and edited anthologies of local writing in Ireland.

Call for Submissions: Summer Love

December will be a slow month on the publication front at Ladylit, so to make up for that we are proud and excited to announce the following call for submissions.

We welcome erotic content, but romance has to be the focus of the story.
Please note the usual no-nos apply: no incest / underage sex / rape / necrophilia / bestiality / scat. No poetry please.
