General Writing Discussion / Re: Cover Art Blues

My romance publisher recently told me that one of their other authors picks out covers first and then writes the story to go with them.  I don't think I could do that, but that's one way to go, I guess!

Maybe you could borrow some concepts of the pre-made covers though, no?

Publishing and Marketing / Awoo, Who's This?
« Last post by ThurstonHowlPub on June 11, 2019, 04:32:51 PM »
So, we are opening for a new anthology, but this one is going to be a weird one for us. It's a non-profit antho. That means we will be making it available only at the cost of printing. We want this to be a community anthology!

The premise for Awoo, Who's This? is a furry writers' Secret Santa game. Writers will let me know if they are interested, and I'll put all names in a spreadsheet that is public. Authors will also get my sample stories that represent their style. At the deadline for interest, I will randomize people so that each author will get another author's name. Let's say for example, Kyell Gold picks up Mary E. Lowd. Then, by the next deadline, Kyell would have to write a short story in the style of Mary. Authors cannot tell others who they drew. This is just supposed to be a fun game for people, and again it will be non-profit. It is limited to Guild members though!!!

Deadline for expressing interest with story samples: July 15, 2019
Email to Howl at jonathan.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com
Deadline for writing story: November 1, 2019

Word Count: at least 2,000
 
We will NOT accept:
Racism, sexism, or discrimination presented in a positive light.
Pedophilia or sex with characters under the age of 18.
Rape, torture, dubious consent, or forced seduction presented in positive lights.
Snuff, necrophilia, or bestiality.
If you’re in doubt, ASK. If you have any questions, please contact Howl at jonathan.thurstonhowlpub@gmail.com

Please include the title of the anthology in the title of the email.

We will probably accept anyone who expresses interest who is in the Guild, but please only express interest if you plan on doing it regardless of who you draw. Typical Secret Santa etiquette and all ^^

Publication in early December!

Fur Reality 2019 Anthology

Arf, I just found out about this. The con, Fur Reality, does an anthology every year which is free to attendees. Here is their submission call for this year: http://www.furreality.org/anthology-2019/

It's close to the deadline, but they're getting less submissions than prior year.

Lost in Time Anthology
This year’s anthology is “Lost in Time”.  Stories submitted should try to fit within the theme in some way.  Various forms of time travel are the  most obvious, but if you have something else that fits in with the theme, feel free to submit it!  All stories must have anthropomorphic animal characters involved.  Humans are great, but we want to see some furries!

Here’s a quick breakdown of the details and rules for submission.

Length: Between 8000-12000 words
Story Rating: G to PG13
Format: .doc, .docx or .ods file types only.  Please use Courier font, 12pt size.  (use of Standard Manuscript format is preferred: https://www.shunn.net/format/story.html)
Multiple Submissions: Yes, within reason.  Please do not submit more than 3 stories at once.
Reprints: We may accept work that has been previously printed if it meets the theme, however we do put priority on new stories that haven’t been in front of our audience before.
Simultaneous Submissions: No.  If you’ve submitted a story to us, we prefer you to hold off on submitting or publishing it elsewhere until you’ve received word from us on the status.
Other restrictions: Please use only characters, species and settings you own or that are public domain.  Any submission with copyrighted characters will be rejected automatically.
Deadline: June 15th, 2019
Release Date: Oct 23rd, 2019 (Fur Reality 2019)
Payment: 1/2 cent per word, plus one contributor copy.

Update: contact email is sal@ringtailcafe.com
