I have some super exciting news, about a whole new project Cover Your Dreams is getting involved in:
Yes, that’s right, we’re going to start publishing anthologies! Here’s the fun part: all proceeds will be going to charity! Each anthology will benefit a different charity whether it be preventing child abuse, aiding earthquake survivors, or caring for companion animals, the charities will be those that touch our hearts, just as much as the stories will.
That’s right, for now the anthologies will be ROMANCE ROMANCE ROMANCE. From sweet to smut and everything in between, we’ll be looking for stories that inspire us and make us think, make us cry and make us HOT.
Roughly here are the terms:
We’re looking for stories from 2000-5000 words
We’re looking for ROMANCE. HEA, HFN, bittersweet or even tragic are all welcome. Some anthologies will be looking for pretty spicy stuff in terms of heat, some open to all levels.
Some anthologies will be open to all pairings (MF, MM, FF MFM etc) and some will be specific.
There will be no payment but good karma, experience and publicity – sorry, this is for charity!
Authors will retain rights to their stories but be asked to not publish elsewhere for six months from publication of the anthology. Previously published stories that author retain rights to are welcome, but please let us know.
Cover Your Dreams will provide the cover design (both eBook AND paperback) as well as one teaser graphic to each author selected. Authors will be able to purchase paperbacks at the wholesale author rate (probably about $4).
The anthology will be professionally edited and formatted.
Published and unpublished authors are welcome. Authors from under represented groups and/or writing about under-represented characters are especially encouraged to submit.
The fun part about this project is that Cover Your Dreams will be designing the cover beforehand to get you inspired. So visit our Call for Submissions page and get your pencils, pens and laptops going. We’re aiming to publish the first three anthologies around December 2015.
Good luck and happy writing!
