Q: This is a shared world anthology. Do I need to read The Widow’s Son before I submit?
A: Not at all! I’ve provided setting details and am happy to answer any questions about the setting you might have.
Q: Will there be contracts for the accepted submissions outlining rights and compensation?
A: Yes. Contracts will be sent out after the crowdfunding phase once I’ve locked down compensation. A minimum of $25 per thousand words is guaranteed, with the possibility of up to $100 per thousand words depending on how well the crowdfunding campaign goes.
Q: Will the anthology be edited by a professional proofreader?
A: Yes. I will be hiring a professional editor for line edits and proofreading. All stories will also be edited for consistency with the shared world.
Q: What, if any, input will authors have in the final look of their stories.
A: All authors will be sent a final proof of the anthology before publication.
Q: What is the acceptance process?
A: All stories will be reviewed by a selection committee composed of a group of authors experienced with the genre. As the anthology editor I will work with authors to ensure consistency across the shared world.
