The four themes are Autumn Court, Winter Court, Spring Court and Summer Court and may include both dark and light Fae (Seelie and Unseelie).
The word count should be between 300 and 3,000 words.
Not all submissions will be accepted.
These are adult stories, but gratuitous sex, gratuitous foul language and gratuitous violence will earn a rejection.
Depending on the quality of the stories sent in, there will either be a one volume, 50+-story anthology or four volumes with 25 to 35 stories in each (depending on average length of stories).
At this moment, I cannot afford to pay for stories that are accepted, but there will be a $10 Amazon gift certificate awarded to the best story in each category ("court") and a $25 gift certificate for the best story overall (once the required number of stories has been submitted and accepted).
At the moment, the closing date remains open. Submissions will remain open until the correct number of acceptable stories is reached. Each book needs to be a minimum of 50,000 words (if broken into four separate books) or 125,000 words (if published as one book).
Once all stories have been chosen for the anthology, winners will be chosen. All those with stories accepted in the anthology will get badges for their blogs or websites. Winners in each category and the over-all winner will get separate "winner" badges.
I am hoping to be able to begin work on the anthology during 2016, so the earlier submissions come in, the better.
