Is There A Deadline? MAY 1st 2019 at Midnight EST
When Will This Be Published?
We are aiming to Publish this Anthology in August/September 2019
What Carnival Items/Rides/Games Are Taken?
We are looking for dark & funny stories featuring rides, attractions, or even stands found at a carnival. From the ticket booth to the Merry-go-round to even the Freak show. We want them all! The story should span Horror and Comedy genres in some form. The darker the piece, the further to the back of the book you will be placed. Lighthearted creepy reads often start our readers off in the front of the book. Be sure to email us to claim your topic!

Rights, Usage, Compensation?
You retain rights to the work. I am simply approving it to be added with your permission to publish it in my collection for both eBook and Paperback. We are perfectly fine if its been published before, online some place, or even if you are submitting it to others. It’s your Story and a piece you feel deserves to live in a tome on a reader’s shelf. Unfortunately, I do not have the financial means to compensate you for your work, though I hope in the future I never have to say this again. In the meantime, all authors get to purchase books at cost and keep 100% of the profit made when selling the paperbacks in person. We also send all authors a contributors copy on us.
We will be exclusively on Amazon.com in the first 90 days in order to take advantage of marketing opportunities. Paperbacks will be created and details of how Authors can get copies at-cost will be disclosed within the final group when word count and page count are finalized and pricing is known. We also promise some awesome chapter header designs for each author as a way to express our gratitude along with access to some stellar memes, banners, and marketing files for you to be able to push the book.
What am I wanting the money for? I wish to take Battle Goddess Productions to the next step by becoming a full blown Independent Publisher who can start taking on Authors like you and help you blossom. In order to do that, I have to build the funds in advance and my current day job cannot support that load in the way I want to represent fellow Authors. I am hoping that hosting an annual anthology showcasing my skills and talents, while supporting other authors will provide a way to build my reputation and ability to make this dream come true.

Where Do I Submit?
So you’ve read as far as here huh? Before you scroll further, make sure you’ve edited and polished your work the best you can! Be sure that you read the word count range and formatted your work to reflect my requests! Why? Because this will be my first means of declining submissions and I don’t want to have to do that to anyone’s work. I expect some grammar and quirky editing spoofs, but if I can’t comfortably read through the story, then I have to also decline said work. SO, PLEASE! Take a moment and give it one last look before you submit! THANK YOU! Now that we’ve gotten the disclaimer out of the way, here’s where and how to submit:
Subject Line: “BGP QUERY: TITLE HERE by YOUR NAME”
Write me an email! Say hello, introduce yourself, and add a short one liner (or two) blurb of what your story is about!
Attach File: Once more, DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT, and PDF File Formats are all I will accept. Anything else will be declined. Forgot to attach your file? Resend it! No need to panic!
