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.



We are very proud to announce that our little project has attracted the attention of a publisher to help us create the best book possible!

The Grumpy Dragon (www.GrumpyDragon.com), a small press in Colorado Springs has graciously stepped in to lend a hand with laying out the book, printing it, and distributing it, all of which will help us get the book into more readers’ hands. And best of all, the sales will still go toward promoting Asbury House to help people help themselves to a better life.

Many thanks to The Grumpy Dragon for helping us out, and many thanks to you for your support as both contributing authors and future readers of this project!
