A/A Productions Looking for Forbidden Texts and Sword & Zombie Stories

FORBIDDEN TEXTS

A/A Productions is now reading for FORBIDDEN TEXTS. This will be an anthology of four stories concerning sinister collections of the written word. FORBIDDEN TEXTS will be distributed to all major ebook stores with a print version as well.

One story has already been accepted! "Rookwood" - a classic reprint from co-authors Rick Kennett & Bryce Stevens!

Length is open, from short stories (3,500 words minimum) to novellas. The forbidden texts involved can be of nearly any sort - from Lovecraftian grimoires which summon strange gods to haunted books to anything else the writer might imagine fits the title. The forbidden texts in the story may be eons old or a brand new web site, a popular novel or eldritch graffiti cropping up in strange locations. The content is wide open, but, given the small number of stories slated, we will be exceedingly selective. There might, however, eventually be several volumes of FORBIDDEN TEXTS.

Reprints: are fine, encouraged even, if the original publication is out of print or obscure.

Deadline: When filled.

Tentative Release Date: Spring 2013.

Payment: Each contributor will receive one-fifth of the total sales, paid quarterly via Paypal, with statements. Contributors also receive an ad in the book and a copy of the final print and ebook versions. The author retains all rights, but we ask that the story not be submitted elsewhere for six months.

Submit your entire manuscript in .rtf format at subtoaaproductions@gmail.com. Include the words FORBIDDEN TEXTS SUBMISSION in the subject line. If your story is selected, contributors receive galleys during the editing process.

SWORD & ZOMBIE 

A/A Productions is now reading for SWORD & ZOMBIE. This will be an anthology of four stories featuring zombies in medieval or sword & sorcery settings. SWORD & ZOMBIE will be distributed to all major ebook stores with a print version as well.

One story has already been accepted! Eric S Brown gives us "Wudewasas", a sword & sorcery variant of his infamous bigfoot tales - with zombies!

Length is open, from short stories (3,500 words minimum) to novellas. The only constraints are that the story must feature zombies and a medieval or sword & sorcery setting. The content is wide open, but, given the small number of stories slated, we will be exceedingly selective. There might, however, eventually be several volumes of SWORD & ZOMBIE.

Reprints: are fine, encouraged even, if the original publication is out of print or obscure.

Deadline: When filled.

Tentative Release Date: Spring 2013.

Payment: Each contributor will receive one-sixth of the total sales (even split between cover artist, authors and publisher), paid quarterly via Paypal, with statements. Contributors also receive an ad in the book and a copy of the final print and ebook versions. The author retains all rights, but we ask that the story not be submitted elsewhere for six months.

Submit your entire manuscript in .rtf format at subtoaaproductions@gmail.com. Include the words SWORD & ZOMBIE SUBMISSION in the subject line. If your story is selected, contributors receive galleys during the editing process.
