White Cat Announces “Insatiable”



White Cat Announces New Magazine

Insatiable- the Magazine of Paranormal Desires

Debuting 21 October 2012

in both print and online formats


Submission Guidelines:

Where to send submissions: insatiablemagsubmissions@whitecatpublications.com

Content:  We are accepting all manner of supernatural, paranormal, weirdness, oddities, and whatnot so long as there is a romantic plot element. Time period is not a sticking point.  Modern, period, complete fantasy/alternate reality all will be looked at.  We want imaginative, well-written stories that are crafted with care. Not to knock it because there is a place for every good word out there, but porn without plot will not be accepted. Sex is good and natural and fun but it must move the plot forward.  We at Insatiable are more interested with emotional content and that “oomph” that good writing evokes in the reader.

Also, we are not afraid of humor.  Just because there’s love involved doesn’t mean it can’t be funny.

Response time:  Since we are a quarterly magazine and want to give everyone the opportunity to be accepted, we respond near the end of every quarter.  If  it takes too long for you or you’ve sold you story, please send us an email with the word WITHDRAW in capital letters in the “Subject” line followed by the name of your story.  Also, as you’ll see below, we not only accept simultaneous submissions, we encourage them to give writers the maximum chance for selling their work.

Statement of Authorship:  To help us fight against publishing a story that is not owned by the submitter, we must inform you that by submitting your story to us for publication you are affirming that you are the sole author of the story, that you hold the copyright to said work, and if you are offering us a reprint that it is allowed by whatever previous obligations you have entered into with said story.

Further, we ask that you provide us your legal name and address, and know that by sending same you are confirming that they both are accurate.  This does not, of course, prohibit you from sending us a story written under a pen name.

Also, please make sure to include your author’s website or blog (if you have either) in your email.

Rates: 3 cents per word.  For reprints, we pay 1 cent per word.

Length:  5,000 words max.  Please query for longer.

Format: Submissions should be in 12 point New Times Roman or Courier font, double spaced Word document in .rtf format.  In the subject line, please show the title of the story.  The attached story document should show your last name, underscore and title.   For example, Smith_wickedredroses.rtf

Edits:  If we feel edits are required, we will contact you and give you the choice of making them or removing your story from the selection process.

Rights: First North American print, audio and ebook rights are what we ask for so that we might present your work in all formats on this magazine.  Like other quality publications, excessive violence is unacceptable.  Your story will automatically be up for our “Best of” anthology, so we may also ask for anthology rights at 1 cent per word.

    Sounds like a fun mag — best of luck with it.

    I suggest you contact Duotrope.com about getting listed there, if you haven’t already. (I just checked and Insatiable isn’t listed, but there might be a processing delay for all I know.) A lot of writers use Duotrope to find markets, and your pay rate will position you quite favorably among the semi-pro markets, most of which cling to the minimum penny a word.

    Question — for how long do you request exclusive rights? And I’m assuming you want perpetual non-exclusive so the online issues can stay in archive?



  2. Rick says:

    Hell Angie, we’re posting at Ralan, but weren’t sure yet about Duotrope due to their policies. I’ll talk to them again next week.

    Re the perpetual non-exclusive, we’re really just asking to keep it available on the site for sale as an electronic back-issue. We’re always open to suggestion, by the way.

  3. Thanks for this new market :) Now I just have to go write something worthy!

    Hi Tara,

    We’re looking forward to your submissions. We’ve heard nothing but good things about your work.

  5. Cynthia Ward says:

    Are you willing to allow multiple submissions from the same author?

    Thank you very much for allowing simultaneous submissions and reprint submissions.

    Wonderful! My two favorite genres combined! I hope to have something to you soon as well!

    Working to cut a story from 7500 words down to 5000.

    Hi guys, the first issue is nearly ready, I hope you are excited. I was when I launched my first magazine back in 1996 (now defunct) and my second in 2010 (having a little rest) – enjoy the ride, it is scarey but hell good. I have finally subbed something to you but I nudged over the upper limit – I had started with an 8500 words story but I didn’t thin k I was skilled enough to lose those extra few words without destroying the work – if I haven’t done so already. Any way, all the best guys.
