Do you love to write fantasy stories?
Do you dream of princesses and dragons?
Do the dragons sometimes win?
Come write for me! I’m putting together my first anthology, called Swords of Darkness. Selected stories will be fantasy tales featuring a sword, though what you do beyond that is up to you. Previously published authors and newbies are both welcome to submit.
What I’m looking for: Fantasy stories featuring a sword of some kind. Ideal length is 3,000-6,000 words, but stories up to 10,000 words will be considered. I’m more concerned that you tell a story to completion, rather than write to a specific word count. If you’re worried about length, just email me. I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
Previously published works are fine, but please let me know at the time of submission. I’ll be selecting 10 stories for publication.
Pay: I’ll be buying one-time digital publication rights. Pay is $20 per story + a digital copy when the book is completed. (You can do whatever you want with your story, including self-publish it or submit it to other publishers. You retain all of your rights.)
Submission deadline: November 30, 2015
Publication date: January 1st, 2016
Edited by: L.C. Mortimer, author of The Dead of Night. When I’m not busy penning zombie novels, I’m a full-time non-fiction writer and editor.
Where to Submit: Email submissions to email@example.com. Please don’t stress or worry about formatting. I will be reformatting everything once I select the stories, so don’t waste your time worrying. As long as I can open the story in Word, I’m happy. You will hear back from me with a yay or nay by December 15th.
What to Send: Email me your story as an attachment. Please include a brief author bio. If you have social media links, a website, or books up on Amazon, please include those links.
