Just a quick update. Submissions are still rolling in, but if you are writing a story for this anthology, don’t forget to get it into us by October 31!

We have also started accepting science fiction stories.

The guidelines are as follows:

Original material, no reprints will be accepted. Do not use non-original characters and/or copyrighted characters. Romance is fine, erotica is inappropriate for the anthology. No rape, no excessive violence.

Word count 2-6K, query for longer.
Payment is a flat $25 per story.
Submissions open from July 27th through October 31st, or until filled.
To submit, save your document as .doc or .rtf and email your submissions to strengthfromwithinanthology [@] gmail [dot] com. Questions and queries may also be directed to this email.

For published pieces we take First Print and/or Electronic Publishing Rights. Bear in mind that most publications will not publish pieces that have been published in print, eBook, or on the web, so for all intents and purposes after your work is published by us it can only be marketed as a reprint, which severely limits the number of markets that will accept it, and drastically reduces the pay rate it can receive. It is up to you, the author, to decide if publishing your work in print and eBook, giving up your First Publishing Right for a token payment, is really what you want to do.
