Call for Submissions: The Mystical Cat

Announcing our first cat-stories anthology!  Edited by Dusty Rainbolt.

Let's face it, those of us who write science fiction and fantasy own cats -- or should own cats.  Because our critters are extraordinarily wonderful and sources of inspiration, we at Sky Warrior Books feel that having a cat anthology is a good thing.

We want The Mystical Cat.  That means fantasy, magical realism, paranormal, mystery, and science fiction.  No "My Pet Cat" stories.  No horror.  No violence against cats or animal abuse.  We want clever stories with a beginning, middle and end with interesting characters.

Payment

Payment is author share divided equally among the authors.  We pay quarterly.

Deadline

Our deadline is January 1st, 2012.  We’re planning on the e-book coming out in May.  Hopefully a print version to follow.

How to Submit or The Nitty-Gritty

We accept RTF files via e-mail only to the publisher at skywarrior3@gmail.com.  Put the words: THE MYSTICAL CAT SUBMISSION in the subject line with the title of your piece.  Send us a virus and we will never accept anything from you again.  Double spaced manuscript in Times New Roman or some other pretty font (not Courier!).  Use italics, not underlines.  Have your contact information on the manuscript including your email address.  Let us know if this is a reprint and from where.  Again, be sure you have the rights to reprint – we won’t chase down permissions.  MUST HAVE A DOMESTICATED CAT IN IT IN A MEANINGFUL WAY.  No more than 6000 words (actual).  Query for longer pieces.  Be sure to send us a manuscript free from spelling/grammar errors.  Visit our website at www.skywarriorbooks.com.  Send to skywarrior3 AT gmail dot com.
