CURRENT BOOK GIVEAWAYS
CALL FOR SHORT STORY SUBMISSIONS
Open submissions for this project until MAY 15th, 2013. (Note date change.)
We're looking for several more short stories for our Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves - stories dealing with wood elves, grays, high elves, and the many other LoTR-type elves, in either fantasy, sf, or modern settings. Contemporary urban or sf is especially desirable.
These should not be "little people" elves, but intelligent, agile, gifted. Think Galadriel, Elrond, Legolas, etc., and it would be helpful if you did a little study on the rich elf legends before you submit. We're looking for award-winning stories here.
500 to 5000 words, but something in between is preferable.
If you've got a story, or can write one worthy of the best spec fic mags out there (Intergalactic Medicine Show, Fantasy, Clarkesworld, Strange Horizons, etc.), please drop an initial query to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Content must be strong, believable, and non-erotic. Writing style should be literary-leaning moreso than commercial (i.e., careful word choices & beautiful descriptions a plus). We shoot for a PG14 rating, max.
Payment: 2 books after publication, and a possible small monetary gratuity.
Submit up to 2 stories.
First or reprint rights. Rights to make into an ebook.

Chila managed an anthology of work done by several authors, making a seamless book that flowed well from story to story. I found her to be supportive, and easy to work with. ~Robert Vaughan, New York Times bestselling novelist & Writers Hall of Fame inductee
Not since Max Perkins at Scribners, who worked closely with Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe, has an editor coached and guided a writer. ~Scott Evans, author
I have found Chila Woychik to be a real professional and an excellent editor. She is also very personable--
a pleasure to deal with.
