Yesterday submissions opened to an anthology that I’ve been looking forward to for over a year!
Fire: Demons, Dragons & Djinn
This is the first in a brand new series of element-based anthologies edited by myself and published by Tyche Books. I’ve included the call for submissions below and I’ll write up and share a ‘Fire Wishlist’ in the next couple weeks and share that here, too. In the meantime, if you’ve got a story about a fiery being I would really love to see it!
Call for Submissions:
The ability for people to control (to some extent at least) fire has long been held as one of the major events that contributed to human evolution, but when fire eludes or escapes our control it is also one of the most destructive forces on earth. Associated with passion, power, transformation and purification, fire is a ferocious element with an unquenchable appetite.
We want to explore the many facets of this beautifully furious element and the creatures associated with it so Fire: Demons, Dragons and Djinns will be filled with stories about every kind of fiery creature you can imagine, not only those listed in the subtitle. We’re looking for phoenixes, ifrits, salamanders, lava monsters and fiery beasts no one has ever heard of before. And of course this anthology will not be complete without at least one demon, dragon and djinn!
Rights and compensation: Payment: $50 CAD flat fee and a paperback copy of the anthology. In exchange we are seeking first world rights in English and exclusive right to publish in print and electronic format for six months after publication date, after which publisher retains nonexclusive right to continue to publish for the life of the anthology.
Open submission period: June 1, 2017 – August 31, 2017 (was originally August 15 but has been extended)
Length: Under 7,500 words
No simultaneous or multiple submissions.
