Call for Submissions - Two Fairy Themed Anthologies

So, I made an off the cuff comment on social Media which has taken on a life of its own.
I have never tried to put together an anthology before, but I'm going to give it a go. Caveat with that - it will almost certainly be self published.
And of course one idea leads to another....so I'm actually looking for submissions for two different, but similar, anthologies.
Call for submissions:
Fifty Shades of Fey: A Fairy Fiction Anthology - an anthology that will include stories of the Good Folk, in all their ambiguous glory from Bright Court to Dark, with every shade in between. Looking for stories that explore the ambivalent nature of fairies, in any setting from historic to modern. The stories do not have to be limited to Celtic fairies, and may include any culture that has beings analogous to Celtic fairies.
....
Fifty Shades of Fae: Fairy Unusual Romances - a fairy-themed romance collection. All submissions welcomed, including erotica; humor and modern takes on traditional tales appreciated. Whether its true love or true lust, if it involves fairies tell us the story as you imagine it. The stories do not have to be limited to Celtic fairies, and may include any culture that has beings analogous to Celtic fairies. 

Submissions can be either poetry or prose. Prose needs to be between 1,000 and 10,000 words. All work must be previously unpublished and the author's own property. Copyright will remain with the author but use will be given to the anthology to publish and re-print, via non-exclusive license. Around a dozen pieces will be selected for each anthology; authors whose work is chosen will be paid $5 US via paypal and receive one free copy of the finished book.
Electronic submission in Word format only. Please clarify which anthology you are submitting for. Deadline for submissions is September 15th, 2017.   ***Deadline extended to November 1, 2017***
Submissions and questions can be sent to Bancumachtachsi@aol.com
