Taking Submissions: The Dragon’s Hoard

November 15, 2014

Deadline: November 15th, 2014
Payment: Payment is author share divided equally among the authors. We pay twice a year.

At Sky Warrior Books, we love all kinds of creatures – especially DRAGONS. Dragons love…well…their hoard. Be it a hoard of gold, gems, books, virgins, whatever your dragon loves to collect and hoard. Or maybe your dragon doesn’t have a hoard – well then WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOUR DRAGON? – All dragons have a hoard – don’t they? If he doesn’t then explain why not.

We’re looking for stories about dragons—their hoard or lack thereof must factor into the story in some way.

Since dragons are primarily a creature of fantasy I’m sure we’ll get plenty of fantasy stories; but we’ll take science fiction as well as any other speculative fiction genre, but you MUST be creative. A creative twist on the idea of dragons and their hoards is the most important part of the story.

All stories must have no stronger than a PG-13 rating. Please no graphic violence or gore and definitely no erotica, be careful with the use of foul language as well.


Payment is author share divided equally among the authors. We pay twice a year.


Our deadline is Nov 15th, 2014. We’re planning a Spring/Summer 2015 release. Please note we are not opening to receive submissions until July 1st – so please don’t submit prior to that date.
