Swords of Darkness is now live!

If you’re interested in reading the final anthology, you can get a copy at Amazon for $4.99!

This anthology was a lot of fun to work on and I hope to compile another one in the future.


Swords of Darkness: Last Call

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 lucycordeliamortimer@gmail.com. 

If you’re a new author who is worried about having someone read your story for the first time, remember these three things:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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,
