Hi all, regular readers of my blog, may remember that a short while back, I mentioned that I entered the SFX Magazine Zombie Anthology Competition.
After it was done, and even though I didn’t win, I was proud of my story the same way I imagine a lot of us are when we try something new.
So I got to thinking how about we bring all these stories together, and do something good with them
After contacting SFX Magazine, to explain the idea, which they were fully supportive of, even though this had no connection to them in any way.
The Charity Zombie Anthology has been launched, along with its own blog.
But these are the details
The idea is 50 to 100 Writers, depending on who is interested in joining this endeavour, for the ebook, which is so far titled the “Zombie Anthology”, a title that is subject to change in the future. Aside from the cut Amazon take, every penny raised to go to a charity. The charity itself is undecided, I would like to donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust, but this will be decided with discussion, and everyone who is accepted will get the opportunity to suggest a preferred charity.
Listed below are the salient points
Stories must be 1500 words or less; including the stories sent originally sent to SFX. The word count is final in lieu of fairness and equality.
There is no barrier to location; stories can be submitted from all over the world.
Age is no barrier, and all age groups are openly encouraged
Stories must be submitted in a Microsoft Word attachment.
Stories must be in submitted in British English; any sent with American English will not be accepted.
Stories must be grammatically correct; they are your responsibility as well as being proof ready.
All stories must be accompanied by an Author Bio, somewhere from 200-300 words.
Authors will retain copyright of their story and will be able to use their story in other publications.
Issues like the cover art, the price of the book does need to be discussed, and for this I do need people to assist with this. This is the first time I have ever attempted anything this on a large scale, and I openly admit, that I need help. Everyone who wants to be involved does have a say in this, from the cover art, to the charity. I want us to consider this an equal platform for all.
Stories to be submitted by the 1st October 2014. That gives us over a month to get them all in.
Stories in British English
Sent on a word format
Please place the name of the story, as well as your name in the title and email it too.
And above all, good luck, I have a feeling that this is going to be an amazing adventure.
So, who out there would like to have a place in this adventure?
Please think about it, tell your friends and get the word out
Love Jodie xx
