Deadline: August 31st 2013
Payment: £10 token payment, a copy of the finished book and if it clears it’s costs profit share for the first two years sales.

Ok foxy folk we have a new anthology call for Christmas Release.

‘Girl at the End of the World’.

What we want: pre, during, post and not remotely related to apocalyptic stories, in the SF, Fantasy, Horror and Crime genres. Clearly female lead characters who pack a punch. Roughly speaking 5,000-10,000 words per story.

It’ll be £10 token payment, a copy of the finished book and if it clears it’s costs profit share for the first two years sales.

The closing date is 31st August 2013 so we can get it sorted in time for a Christmas release, because nothing says Merry Christmas like the end of the world.

These details will be added to the submissions page, where you can already find details of house style etc for your story submission.

When we do request submissions please read the guidelines below carefully as submissions not adhering to them will be rejected.


We ask for: First World English (for the print book), First World Electronic (for the eBook), and Anthology rights. We also require rights to special editions, omnibus editions or anthology editions where appropriate.

For anthologies we require one year’s exclusivity from the submission deadline unless otherwise agreed.

Submission Guidelines

Email [email protected]

Subject of your email must be ‘submission’ and the relevant call eg ‘novella open call’ or the title of an anthology. I may be receiving submissions for several projects at once and it needs to be clear what you are submitting for.

The email must contain your real name, your writing name if different and the title and synopsis of your submission (no more than 100 words)

In the case of novellas and short stories please submit a completed document, for novels initially a one page outline and the first chapter.

Documents must be in .doc (word) format or .odt (open office)

We are developing a house style, please format your document appropriately

Fonts for proofing: use something easy on the eye like Palatino, Calibri or Times New Roman, nothing with too much of a flourish.
Dialogue: ‘Single quote marks’ around speech, “rather than double”, which can be used for quoting within speech.
Lines & Indents: Single line break for a new paragraph, two for a bigger break in time using the same POV, and one either side of a line with *** in the middle for a shift in scene or POV
Elipses: Hi… Will do just fine.
Line spacing at 1.5
