Our new anthology, Pieces of Everything features a lot of top notch authors, including: Jack Ketchum, Jonathan Maberry, William Meikle, John Everson, Tim Lebbon, Hunter Shea, Alison Littlewood, Frazer Lee and a whole lot more.
It is, to date, our greatest anthology thanks to a group of wonderful authors willing to support us just as much as we’re willing to support them. And we appreciate that greatly, and find genuine satisfaction in being able to continue pushing their work in the direction of the masses.
And now, it’s time to run another contest, which will differ significantly from past contests.
Let me share all the details:
Topic/Theme: OPEN! You can write about anything you’d like, just so long as it incorporates a bit of the macabre, outlandish or science fiction.
Word Count: Do not exceed 4,000 words.
Formats: Submit your stories in either .doc, .docx or .rtf files ONLY.
Deadline: May 10th.
Prize: Publication alongside all of the amazing authors listed (and more amazing authors not listed), as well as a $50 take (you must have paypal) and two paperback copies of the book.
Where to Send your Story: firstname.lastname@example.org (if clicking the link doesn’t work, you may need to paste the address in your email). Subject line should read: Pieces of Everything Submission – (story title) – (author name).
ALWAYS INCLUDE YOUR PAYPAL ADDRESS! SHOULD YOUR STORY WIN, I’D RATHER NOT SPEND EXTRA TIME TRACKING YOU DOWN.
The Winner: Only ONE author will win this contest. Craft your greatest piece of work, because you’ll be toeing the line with a lot of eager authors chomping at the bit to emerge the victor and place in this collection alongside these superb talents.
Censorship: No worries on the censorship. I could care less if you’re cursing like a sailor, decapitating dogs, impaling evil children; it matters not. You’ve got a field to run free about!
Winner Announcement will be made May 31st on the site. I will NOT be sending out emails (that’s to keep you returning to the site on a regular basis, obviously!).
And that about sums it up. This is our grandest release yet, and you’ve got a chance to add enough moolah to grab a few cases of beer as well as add an amazing credit to your résumé.
If you have any other questions, drop them right here. Otherwise, get to writing your best stuff, because this is going to be an amazing collection, and I’ve got a feeling the competition this time around is going to be fierce.
SPREAD THIS CONTEST EVERYWHERE! FB, TWITTER, GOOGLE+ – you name it. Get the word moving, Prove you’re the best by decimating competition, but give others the chance to shine!! An easy victory after all, is a victory worthy of little pride!
