Hello ma100

This looks like a really good thing to get involved with. I've got a few stories sitting on the back boiler which might be of interest to you. Shall I send one on your personal email?

Hi everyone,

I'm brand spankin' new here, but am already finding the forum to be very useful! It'll be the next add to my favorites.

Just curious for the Christmas anthology, what kinds of stories are you looking for? I mostly do travel stuff and in particular, travel stuff from France. Any place in the book for this sort of material?

Thanks!

If you can turn it into a story, I would be glad to take a look. Xmas in France sounds
pretty good to me. ;D

This may be an overly obvious and stupid question, but I'm willing to risk it 8): Does the story have to deal with Christmas?

Set at Xmas would be good or having an xmas theme. At present I have to keep a balance on the content. When I have finished confirming with last years authors, I will have a clearer picture for submissions. More information will be going up on Sunday about the Anthology if you would like to wait until then.

Well, I am absolutely astounded. I have heard back from some of the last years contributors and the response has been fantastic.

Pencilled in for 2009 Christmas Anthology.

Miranda Dickinson (Wurdsmyth) -John Mathewson (Gyppo) - Don Blinebry (Don86) - Nick Daws - Linda Gibson (Fire-fly) - Guy Cousins (Salvatore) - Andrew Fairhurst (AndrewF) - Paul Walton (PaulW) - Davy Lee Jones - Patrick Fox (Foxy) - Anika Scott (Annmarie) - Amie Saramelkonian (Amie)

You guys ROCK.


Oh yea and me. ;D There are a few others I still have to get in touch with and will do shortly as your support last year was superb. You guys all know what you are doing via pm.

Others of you have already pm'd me, so I know what I am expecting from you.

New Authors only guidelines.

500 to 2000 words please. All new submitters please, no later than 14th September.

Any genre, however, please bear in mind the book itself is not for children.

Horror, humor, drama, romance the list goes on. Some with a Christmas theme some without.

When your story is ready pm me, and I will give you my email addy.

This is going to be one tremendous anthology. Thank You and I am looking forward to seeing your stories.

Christmas Anthology 2009  (Will be published by Salvatore publishing)
After the success of 2008 anthology A writers Christmas, I am now looking at 2009. All writers that were in the anthology are invited, if they so wish, to send me a story. It does not have to be a Christmas story and it is entirely up to you which genre though, as last years, the book will not be for children. You were a fantastic bunch and I was so proud of you all.

A second edition of A writers Christmas, will be released at the same time. The profits this year will be going towards helping child victims of sexual and physical abuse.

Wanting to encourage new writers, I would like to invite submissions from MWC new members as well. I have done this early to give you a lot more time. If you are interested please pm me.  :)
