September 30, 2016


Deadline: September 30th, 2016
Payment: .025/word and 3 contributor’s copies

Open Submissions for Only the Light We Make; Volume three of Tales from the world of Adrian’s Undead Diary have begun. This anthology set in the world of AUD will be edited and published by Chris Philbrook in print, ebook, and audiobook format. Mark Tufo has agreed to write the foreword for the book, and Chris will be writing between 3 and 5 new stories for the book as well.

This is a paid anthology.

Stories should follow the canonical rules of the AUD setting in terms of the undead, timeline of events and available characters. (silent zombies, no undead animals, no one dreams of the living, etc) Submissions should range in length between 500 and 7,500 words in length. Stories are due September 30th.

You may use existing characters as mentioned above, but the stories must fit in with the core AUD storyline for inclusion. Submissions are open to professionals as well as fans.

If you have a solid story that uses the undead, or the apocalypse as a basis, you may submit it for inclusion, but please be aware that it must be edited to make sense before publishing.

Stories selected will be paid out within 45 days of editing (or as applicable based on release and printing schedules) according to the following;

1.) Each contributor will receive in hand or by mail three print copies of the anthology.  All copies will be signed by Chris Philbrook prior to shipping. The previous anthology contributor copies were sent out with four author’s autographs.

3.) Each contributor will receive a free .mobi copy of the anthology.

4.) You will receive two free Audible download codes for the book.
