Dead Light Publishing asks for First Anthology Rights with the possibility of a future Anthology Audio Rights. (This would entail a second contract and payment.)
Payment at this time is a flat rate of $25.00 CAD per story within 30 days of acceptance and return of signed contract. Contributors will also receive an electronic copy of the anthology, (also a copy of the audio version if your story is included and one is created,) and a 30% discount for print copies, less shipping and handling. We require a 90 day exclusivity right after publication at which time you are free to republish your story elsewhere.
It is our mission to evolve our pay scale in the future to include print copies as well as other bonuses. As we are just starting out this is what we can do for now.
Dead Light Publishing looks forward to your submission!
