From the Circlet Press guidelines:


Typically we want short stories between 3000 and 7000 words, with some flexibility about the lengths. Generally we’ve found that below 2500 words there isn’t enough room for an author to get sufficient plot, characterization, and erotic action in to make it a good story, though it has occasionally been done.

Editorial Biases: We are strong supporters of “alternative” sexualities, including lesbian, gay, transgendered, S/M, leather, other fetishes, and so on, but do not try to “queer up” your story for us if the characters are heterosexual. Though we admit we have a taste for the hot and kinky stuff, work need not be overly kinky to get our attention. We encourage works that are fresh & original, left of center, and so on. We admit to a certain bias away from the sometimes cliched aspects of all genres, including pornography. If it seems like it’s “been done before” we may not have a place for it.
