You’ve probably seen this — I signal boosted the crap out of it all over social media when Tyche made the official announcement — but in case you haven’t, I am excited to share with you the official call for submissions for book one of my brand new elemental anthology series — Fire: Demons, Dragons and Djinns.
Fire: Elemental Anthologies #1
Tyche Books and Rhonda Parrish are proud to announce a brand new elemental anthology series, and to kick things off they are opening to submissions for the first anthology in the series—Fire: Demons, Dragons and Djinns.
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: Flat fee of $50.00 CAD 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 15, 2017
Length: Under 7,500 words
No simultaneous or multiple submissions.
Submission method: Submittable! You will be able to upload your story on the Fire Submission page.
Expected Publication Date: Summer 2018
