Hey Ollie...how about you contribute to the next book?   ;D

there's another one planned for about three months from now!!

:o I didn't know that...

At least we already have an idea for the book cover, now that Olie's contributing his story/stories ;D ;D
Don't worry Louie, I didn't know either.
Sure, I'll contribute, if I've got a story ready.

Ollie,
 When we do another volume it will be 'open house' and everyone will be free to contribute. This was a 'dummy' run written by a bunch of dummies. You don't get paid however, and I stash all the profit - still interested?

Seriously, this effort was a prototype to see what interest it would generate. We're currently building a pukka website, and we (Steve and I) will let you know when the next one is being put together. Primarily, it's just a bit of fun - actually it's a great slab of fun. ;D We kept it quiet because we didn't know how it would turn out.

We still don't. :D

Yup, the actual profit margin is minimal, and all proceeds will be spent on readying the prospective publishing company for potential launch (i.e buying hosting, domains, ISBN numbers etc).
Volume One's contributors received a free copy of the anthology as payment.

So, in essence it's truthful to say: the more copies that are sold, the more chance the publishing company has of success - mutual success, because that way there's more chance of Salvatore Publishing hiring authors, in the near future, and getting them published.  :)

Getting Salvatore Publishing up and running sounds like a great idea.
I'd be glad to contribute.
