Every month we will be hosting a contest with a different theme. If this month's contest isn't right for you, bookmark the page and keep coming back, we'll run something that works for you soon. Contests will be posted below with submission guidelines and prize info. Even if you don't win, we may offer to put your story into one of our compilations.

Being one of our authors can be a serious boost for an erotica writer's income. We know how to get sales on both Kindle and a wider publication platform and we handle everything from editing to cover design. We also offer our authors a much more generous split of revenue than traditional publishers. So give us your best work and check it again before you send it. We want to publish the world's finest erotica.

July Contest

First Time Lesbian Encounters

1st Place $100

2nd Place $75

3rd Place $50

Further winners, at our discretion, will be chosen as honorable mentions and paid $25. All winners will be included in the compilation. See complete rules for details.

For every retweet THIS TWEET receives we will donate $1 to The Pride Foundation up to $150. Get those retweets out there and make us pay!

Let's celebrate Pride Month with some steamy first time encounters between two (or more) women. Whether it was as part of a threesome, with a friend, or anywhere else, you never forget your first time with a woman.

We are also looking for new authors. If your work is chosen, you may be asked to submit further stories or full length works for publication as part of our revenue split program. This program can be quite lucrative and is generally reserved for established authors. Becoming a part of our revenue split program can lead to a significant side income or even a full-time writing career, and two authors from our June contest now have contracts with us for full length books.

There are a few caveats...

No fan fiction. We know it's hot. But we can't publish it, so fanfic is out.

The characters and the story must be all original content.

Keep it safe, sane, and consensual. This our rule with all of our stories. We love extreme sex, but not with someone who doesn't want it or will be hurt by it.

Make sure your story is at least 1,500 words. We would consider shorter works if they are truly spectacular, but they won't be eligible to win more than honorable mention.

Send submissions to submissions@chainedhearts.com. Winners will be announced in the first week of August. Submissions should be in .rtf, .doc, or .docx format and easily readable.

Complete Contest Rules (please read these!)

By submitting a story to this contest you attest that the entirety of the work you submit is owned by you and no one else. All characters and writing is original and no one else has the rights to publish it.

You also agree that if your work is chosen as a winner, you grant us electronic and audio publishing rights with exclusivity for 12 months as part of a compilation and the right to continue to publish the work indefinitely as part of that compilation (we don't want to have to pull a book off the virtual shelves after 12 months but you can start selling it other places after that time if you like). We only have the right to publish your story if it is chosen as a winner and you have been paid. We won't own your story, now will we have rights to publish it outside of that compilation except for short excerpts.

You also agree that if we choose to make an audio book from the compilation, you will grant us the rights to publish your work as part of the same compilation with exclusivity as audio for twelve months and the right to continue to publish it as part of that audio compilation indefinitely.

You are also granting us license to edit and make changes to the story as we see necessary for publication. This usually involves minor changes for clarity, grammar and punctuation.

You must have a valid Paypal account to accept payment.

If there is any dispute, both parties agree to binding mediation by a mediator licensed in the State of Nevada via digital conferencing. Let's keep expenses down. We don't want to spend money on lawyers any more than you do and we don't anticipate this ever being a problem anyway.

Submission of a story indicates acceptance of these terms.

Decisions of our judges will be final.

This contest is void where prohibited by law.

Contestants can submit a maximum of two entries.

These terms are not final until July 5th, 2020 and are subject to change until that date.
