Linden Bay Romance

Call for submissions for Stroke of Midnight Anthology

Throughout history, witches have populated the stories we tell. Medea and Circe from Greek legend, Schathach, teacher to Cuchullain, in Celtic tradition, Macbeth s wyrd sisters, Glinda the Good and her nemesis The Wicked Witch of the West, even Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Willow
Rosenberg of Buffy fame. All powerful witches, all very different women.

Now the witches are coming to Linden Bay.

We are looking for your best short stories involving witches and witchcraft. Any genre is welcome, and don t hesitate to turn those stereotypes on their heads! The best submissions will be chosen for the Linden Bay Stroke of Midnight anthology, to be released in October.

So put down your broomsticks and pick up your pens!

What we're looking for: Erotic romances incorporating a witch as a main character or witchcraft in its many flavors as a major theme. Linden Bay's focus is on love in all of its forms, so we're looking for stories of a compelling relationship leading to a happily ever sometime. We
are not looking for stories containing pedophilia, sexual violence or bestiality. While we are primarily a hetero publisher, we are willing to consider well-written same sex partnerships that adhere to our other requirements.

Length: 5,000-12,000 words

Submissions: Put the words [Stroke of Midnight] in the subject line so your submission can be forwarded to the proper editor. All submissions must conform to the standard guidelines for Linden Bay submissions and the requirements listed above.

Send inquires and submissions to: submissions@lindenbayromance.com

Deadline: Midnight EST of August 4th, 2005

Compensation: Linden Bay Romance is a royalty paying publisher in both electronic and POD formats. We typically pay royalties of 37% of gross proceeds on every e-book sale and 25% of net on every print-on-demand sale. Authors will receive a formal contract, details of which are available upon
request.
