About the Erotic Narrative Volume Series—Erosetti Press will publish an annual volume highlighting the erotic narrative genre and featuring artist illustrations that accompany each story. For the purposes of this volume series, first-person erotic narrative is defined as: 

 

A genre of literature or storytelling that involves the explicit depiction of sexual experiences and activities from the perspective of the main character, who is often the narrator. In this genre, the storytelling is done in the first person, meaning that the narrator speaks directly from their own point of view, using pronouns such as "I" and "me." The focus of the narrative is on the personal and intimate experiences of the protagonist, detailing their thoughts, emotions, and sensations during various erotic encounters. This genre aims to provide a vivid and immersive portrayal of sexual situations, exploring themes of desire, passion, intimacy, kink, discovery, and exploration.

 

For Volume II is open themed—We invite authors to submit a broad spectrum of themes explicit in nature. We welcome narrative submissions that approach themes with sensitivity, consent, and a commitment to portraying the complexities of human desire. Your manuscripts should explore the diverse facets of erotica, allowing readers to engage with the characters on a deeper, more intimate level.

 

Submission and Production Schedule—Manuscripts should be submitted by August 30th, 2024. Production and illustrative work will continue through the summer and fall, with promotional announcements and posts on the Erosetti Press website, social media, and distribution lists. The target publication date is February 2025. Submissions may be previously written and posted, but not published under ISBN number.

 

Author Confidentiality and Anonymity—To ensure author confidentiality, chapters will be published under pseudonym. Production communications and the Author-Publisher Agreement may be signed under the author’s pseudonym as an artist entity. Legal names may be used as an option, if elected by the author.

 

Author Retains Ownership—Authors retain ownership over their written work. Authors may post and publish their written work at will. An Author-Publisher Agreement will be signed to ensure copyright of the book publication, under an ISBN and the Erosetti Press moniker. Book copyright statements will acknowledge authors as owners of their creative works.

 

Publication and Distribution—Volume II will be assigned ISBN numbers and published in 6x9 inch paperback and hardcover with dust jacket versions. The book will be listed internationally on all major online vendors (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.) and tens of thousands of online and brick-and-mortar bookstores. We plan on maintaining international listing and distribution indefinitely.

 

Compensation—Erosetti Press will incur significant production and listing costs to produce a high quality and well-distributed book. In addition to offering publication and promotion of author’s creative works and professional contacts, we will send to each author two paperback copies of the final book. Marketing and promotion of the author’s creative works will reach a worldwide audience. We believe this is a fair and consistent compensation strategy for a niche publisher with a mission to elevate and support the work of erotic artists in a mainstream space.

 

Manuscript Requirements & Submission Guidelines—You may submit up to three manuscripts for consideration. In addition to the narrative manuscript, each submission requires several additional elements. Please read carefully and submit one form and document upload for each manuscript submission.
