Introducing Smut by the Sea!

smutbythesea

As I mentioned yesterday in my Seaside themed Sunday Snog I’m really excited about the latest venture from the Blisse Household, Smut By The Sea. What is even more exciting is that the lovely Lucy Felthouse is on board as an editor! Yaaaaay!

Whilst I’m here I want to explain that in the UK the word ‘Smut’ is seen in quite a positive light! Smut is light-hearted and sexy, like the smutty postcards you can send from all the seaside towns in England. We’re great fans of innuendo, as a general rule over here! Smutty, saucy, risque and rude are all of a similar level and meaning to me as a Brit.

I understand in other places Smut has a less sexy connotation, I do hope you can embrace the Brit translation and get in touch with your slightly silly but definitely sexy side and join in with our Smut by the Sea plans!

This is a multi-part plan but the first step is to pull together a sexy seaside anthology. So we’re looking for talented authors, published and unpublished to send us stories, read on!

The Smut By The Sea Anthology will feature stories from a variety of genres, but they must have that overall “Seaside” feel, either in location or style. If you’d like some clarification before submitting your story then please email me and ask! (email address to follow below in submission info!)

Length: 4,000 to 6,000 words

Genre: Any

Heat Level: Any

Ending: Any

Orientation: Any

Submissions Due: June 1st, 2012

We’ll also be accepting Poetry submissions of any length.

Royalties will be split 50% of the net profits with contributing authors, exact values will be given once we know how many stories will be in the final anthology.

You can submit your story/poem by emailing it as an attachment to victoria[at]victoriablisse.co.uk. (Please include Pen Name, Author Bio, Genre, Wordcount)

So, I hear you cry, what other plans are afoot? Well we’re planning some kind of smutastic event over in Scarborough, my favourite seaside resort, sometime in 2013. This is an idea at the moment that my husband and I are building up on but if you have any suggestions please tell us. We’re hoping to make it an event that appeals to authors and readers alike with readings, panels and more!
