Taking Submissions: The World of Xonthian

Deadline: October 31st, 2022.
Payment: 1 cent per word
Theme: A shared-world Sword and Sorcery anthology based on Xonthian, a universe created by Daniel Dickinson.

Fedowar Press is opening submissions for a shared-world Sword and Sorcery anthology based on Xonthian, a universe created by Daniel Dickinson. This is a world of magic and warriors with all the races you love:

The world of Xonthian is thick with diversity and rich in history. From Xonthian City, where humans live their lives in a large city while the outskirts have some of the land’s richest crops and farms. Or the island of Juan’kij, where the elves have secluded themselves in the forests of Timilik. The Dwarves living peacefully under the Shadow Mountains, and the Atticatten, who have hidden away on the easternmost peninsula of Xecutran. Where Orcs, Ogres and darker races who live in long-forgotten jungles and swamps, or in the shadows of lost civilizations. To the undiscovered lands of the east, where magic, sword, and gunslingers travel desert vistas.

This anthology is expected to release in mid-2023. Submissions will be accepted until October 31, 2022.

Taking Submissions: Embers of Corsari

Deadline: August 1st, 2022
Payment: Royalties
Theme: High fantasy set in a new world (bible available).

“Embers of Corsari”. An anthology set in A new world that will be available for other authors to dabble in. Yes, there’s a world bible you’ll have to look over and abide by. Genre is high fantasy.

Submission call: Enter a world of heroes, villains, monsters, and gods. Where magic is as common as the air you breathe. I’m looking for stories about the beginnings of heroes or villains. Or even their ends. The start of wars… or perhaps the end where little is left but devastation and the embers of hope. Fiery-tempered warriors or Red-headed temptresses. Or perhaps even Pyromaniacs. Everything begins with a burning ember: may it be hope or hate, love or revenge.

Taking Submissions: Kingdoms of Wrath and Ice (Early Listing)

Submission Window: April 1st-April 30th, 2022
Payment: $25 and a contributors copy
Theme: Tales of stone cold villains (literally on the cold!)

From castles atop snow crested mountains to the cold isolation of the frozen tundra, the lure of darkness beckons us all.

For Kingdoms of Wrath and Ice, Tourmaline & Quartz seeks your tales of stone cold villains. Show us the frosty ice queens, the conniving fae lords we love to hate and hate to love. Give us your dragons with hearts as cold as their gold, or the witch who summons a snowstorm to save herself from the hunters. Tell us about your morally gray outcasts that crave vengeance while the heroes are seeking warmth.

The winter months are dark, the snows are deep, and the ice is treacherous. But what if the bitter cold wasn’t the only villain?
