Young Adult & Adult Anthologies

The following are anthologies with upcoming deadlines:

All of our anthologies are charity anthologies, each benefitting a different charity. Most are 20% to charity, with authors splitting 60% of the profits. However, from time to time, we'll have emergency/disaster relief anthologies which are 100% to charity. We'll always be transparent about which ones those are.

 

Anthologies with an asterisk next to the title will also benefit a local hospital's pediatric department. This hospital and especially the pediatrics department are near and dear to my heart because they saved the life of my daughter who was diagnosed with cancer. I didn't include this in all anthologies because some of them are already donating to two anthologies. Each charity receives 10% of the book's profits, unless otherwise stated.

We are currently looking for vampire stories... everything from romance to horror and suspense. Is your MC the vampire or a hunter itching to put their wooden stake to good use?

Haunted houses, graveyards, and school secrets...oh my!

Are these tales merely urban legends, or could there be an element of truth to them? We may never know. Reader, beware.

Obsession
Obsessions can take over you in ways that you never imagined. They can cause you to become so consumed that you can focus on nothing else but protecting the power and hold you have over the object of your affection... whether that's an object, a dream that you have, or someone for whom you have feelings. If left unchecked, some obsessions can lead you down a dark path that you never saw coming.

Charity: Shatterproof, an organization dedicated to support and treatment for those suffering from addiction as well as their loved ones.

*Word count requests are our preferences. However, we will accept great stories outside of these word counts. Also, they do not pertain to poetry. Those have no word count or page limits, but epic poetry is certainly welcome for some of our anthologies (such as Renaissance, Celtic-themed anthologies, fantasy genres, etc.) The purpose of the word count guidelines is to limit the number of authors per anthology so that each author receives an appropriate percentage of the royalties.

**Absolutely no - and we repeat, NONE whatsoever - erotica, graphic sexual assault, etc. Intimate scenes are okay for the YA & Adult section as long as they're done tastefully.
