Today is the last day to get in your submissions for Swords of Darkness! If you have a story you’ve been hanging onto, now is your chance to send it in!
Email me your story at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re a new author who is worried about having someone read your story for the first time, remember these three things:
- Someone has written a worse story than you. I promise. Chances are that your story is actually pretty decent. I will never laugh or make fun of your story. Ever.
- Even if your story isn’t selected for publication, this doesn’t mean your story sucks. I’ve received an overwhelming number of responses for this anthology, which means I have some tough decisions to make.
- You can improve. We all can. I’ve been a professional writer since 2005 and my work has changed dramatically in the ten years I’ve been writing. I have room for improvement and so do you. If your story isn’t chosen this time, it’s not the end of your writing career. I promise.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted a story and for trusting me to read your manuscript. I’m honored that you want to be a part of Swords of Darkness and even if your story isn’t selected, I hope to collaborate with you on future anthologies.
All the best,
