Open Call for Anthology Submissions
Release Date: November 15, 2013
Due Date for Submissions: July 1, 2013
Prose by Design is now open for submissions for It’s Christmastime, an anthology of short stories/novellas edited by Cindy C Bennett and Sherry Gammon. The story should revolve around Christmas. Your story may be in any genre as long as the main theme is Christmas. The inclusion of vampire, werewolves, elves, and/or reindeer is entirely up to you, the author.
Your story must be "clean" which means no profanity or explicit sex scenes. We all like a little heat, but keep it PG13 or better. Your story must be a minimum of 5,000 words and a maximum of 25,000 words. Royalties will be based on the number of authors published in the anthology. 50% of all profits will be divided equally among the authors. The final percentage will be specified in the contract.
Story must be submitted as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your story must be submitted by Midnight PST July 1, 2013 as .doc or .docx files. Manuscript should be 12 pt. Calibri, Times New Roman, or Arial with block style paragraphs (no tabs). Write " It’s Christmastime " as the subject of the email, and include the following information in the body of the email: Name, penname (if applicable), and the title of your story. You may submit multiple stories, but only one story per author will be included in the anthology. Stories must be original and previously unpublished in any format. All authors will be informed of whether their story has been chosen to appear in the anthology on or before August 31, 2013. Contracts must be signed and returned within seven (7) of acceptance. Prose by Design retains the right to edit your story for grammatical errors. All contest winners will be paid royalties on the anthology unless otherwise indicated in the contest rules.
