A/A Productions reading for two anthologies

Posted: October 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

A/A Productions is currently accepting submissions for two anthologies:
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.

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.

  1. I am interested in the Forbidden Texts anthology. I’ve got an outline and the first 2K words for a short story centered around a journal recovered in modern day from the Civil War Era. I just had one question – do you want a certain pedigree of writers involved? I just released my first novel recently, so I am still relatively new to the writing game. You can review a sample of my writing on my website as an excerpt from my novel – here. I’d also be happy to send you more detail about my anthology concept as well. Thanks!

    Hello there,
    I tried to submit a story, but keep getting a ‘failure notice’ when using the email listed.
    Any ideas?

      Hi James:

      Apparently there’s a site out there listing the email address as being @hotmail.com – it’s a @gmail address, not hotmail. That’s likely the problem.
