For instance, would a crime story with fantasy elements work for this?


They dig into the genres a bit on their submission page.

Blargh. I had something going for this, then it spiraled way past the word count and turned into its own thing.

Into the trunk this half-finished American Gothic piece goes.

Haha, I know the feeling. One of my potential subs for their Time Travel anthology turned into my current WIP (a novel).

Keep in mind, submissions do best in the 2k to 4k wordcount range.

Thanks for the link. I had an idea I'd been mulling over for a while that I ended up writing for the epic fantasy volume. Any one else submitting to these anthologies?

I made it in on the last day. XD Not with a new story, but still.

New call from Flame Tree, guys! Detective Thrillers and A Dying Planet. As of this volume, they'll be paying 8 cents/word for new stories and 6 cents/word for reprints, so it's totally worth the attempt either way. Deadline is August 18th.

Hmm, just happen to have one of each-actually two of the second one. Not sure how much the Detective one is a thriller but it's my first attempt.

Hmmm(again) have a thriller that has a police officer in it. Wonder if if it is enough.
