Fundraising Anthology Submissions

SpayNeuterGraphic

Submissions are now open for my newest fundraising anthology “Rejected”!
Behold, the fine-print details:
Why: Every year over 6.5 million animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide. It is because of the detrimental statistics surrounding abandoned animals that spay/neuter outreach programs play a vital role is diminishing these numbers.

What: The Spay/Neuter coalition of Lebanon, Georgia is one such program that dedicates itself to implementing more spay and neuter education, outreach, and collaboration while promoting many low cost options to the general public.

**Note: The Spay and Neuter Coalition does not endorse or promote the potential content of the “Rejected” anthology but have graciously agreed to accept online proceeds from the sales.

Past Anthologies:

Latest Update: “Cocky-Tales” anthology raised $75 for the Romance Writers of America’s author advocacy fund. Hey, at around .70 per ebook download, I’d say that’s pretty good! Stay tuned! I’d love to pick another good cause to raise money for very soon!

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Per the deadline, submissions are currently closed. I really appreciate the influx of response to “Cocky-Tales Anthology” and am happy to announce that the Romance Writers of America have agreed to accept the proceeds** for use in their author advocacy fund!!  **this does not denote that RWA in any way endorses the publication of “Cocky-Tales Anthology”.

 

Stay Tuned for more updates about “Cocky-Tales Anthology”!

 

I am currently accepting submissions to a brand new anthology entitled “Cocky-Tales”!  Here’s the fine-print details:

Why: Because the ability to copyright/trademark a word to the point no other author can use is at as a title is a detriment and an attack on the creative writing community. It not only impacts romance writers and authors but sets a dangerous precedent for writing as a whole.

What: I always considered myself a novelist with, what I consider to be, few publications in anthologies. However, I feel compelled to pursue the idea of this particular anthology and am reaching out to any other brave authors and writers who would like to join me in this quest. As of now, I am only looking to publish “Cocky-Tales” in ebook format.

Guidelines: 

–Submissions must be in .doc or .docx format

–12 pt. Times New Roman font

–1,5oo-5,000 Word Count

–Genre: Open but the word “Cocky” must somehow be incorporated in all titles

–Explicit/Graphic content will not be accepted

–Submit up to three poems or short stories

Deadline: 

Please submit by Monday, June 4 2018

Payments/Rights/ Etc:  

Upon acceptance, each author will be asked to submit a 4-6 sentence bio.

Each accepted short story will receive $10 and each accepted poem $5 with half paid at the signing of the contract and the other half to be paid within ninety days of publication of “Cocky-Tales”. (In other words, if you submit three poems and all three are accepted, you will receive $7.50 when you return the signed contract and $7.50 within ninety days of publication.) Payment will be made via PayPal. Therefore, author must have a valid PayPal account.

If “Cocky-Tales” goes to print format, each author will be issued two free copies of the anthology and the ability to purchase further copies at a discount.

All proceeds from the sales of this anthology, paperback or electronic will go to help those impacted by the trademark/copyright situation. 

Authors of all accepted stories will maintain the ability to publish their accepted works elsewhere.
