Author Submission Guidelines

-Anthology Open for Submission-

Welcome to our Anthology Open for Submission page. Here you will find all the current anthologies we are looking for authors to submit their stories too. If you have any questions please let us know by CONTACT US.

HOW IT WORKS!

Science Fiction and Fantasy authors are welcome to submit their stories to our current anthologies that we have available. We have deadlines for each anthologies and stories won't be looked at until the deadline has passed. There is a 4 month window for us to go through the submissions to see if your story is a perfect fit for our anthology. You will receive a contract after the 4 month window and notice of when the preorder period will start for the anthology. Right now we don't offer an up front payment to authors for their submissions. But we do leave it open ended. Depending on the performance of the anthology with sales will decide if authors will receive a bonus or not. This means that our funds that we put into the set has to be paid by the royalties first then the remaining profits after 6 months could lead you to a bonus payout. This can range from anything from $5 and up. The purpose of the anthologies is to get new authors in front of more readers. It isn't necessarily about bringing in big profits. We want to invest in you as authors and help get you a boost with your audience.

Publication Rights: First Print Rights, after 6 months all rights revert back to the author.

Cost to Enter: None

Editing: We request that you supply a fully edited piece. If submitted unedited we will look at how much work will have to go into making it publish ready. This can effect your chances of being included in the anthology.
