Submissions sought for new short story anthology
« on: August 12, 2014, 02:13:18 PM »
S and H Publishing is seeking submissions for a new anthology. Details in brief:

Any length up to 3,000 words.

General adult audience (without offending anyone).

Royalties split 50/50 between publisher and authors.

Deadline is 14th September 2014.

Full details at http://www.sandhpublishing.com/Submissions.html

P.S. It's quite a new publisher, and they're also interested in receiving book submissions (details on same page).

P.P.S. Please mention you heard about this on MWC if you submit anything.  :)

Yes indeed. Olives for organic olive oil.  :)

I live in Italy. 'Organic' is the only kind of olive oil I know.  :)

What? Don't they use chemicals in Italy?

They do, but there's a sort of self-consciousness about it so it's pretty clear whether you're buying "olive oil" or y'know, just some oil.  Plus I get mine from a farmer in Tuscany ;)

Unfortunately, a lot of farmers tend to be a bit 'spray happy' in Greece, although the use of chemicals seems to have reduced dramatically since the economic crisis began and less people can afford them.

Best of luck with your submission, Ian.

Just so you (and others) know, I'm not involved in the selecton process at all. I just happen to be on their books and thought I'd give the anthology a plug on MWC.
