BETTY BITES BACK anthology - Call for Authors!

In our first call for authors we received so many great submissions, we were really blown away! That being said, we'd like to have more diversity in our anthology so this call out is for #ownvoices authors, POC authors, and differently abled authors.

Betty Bites Back: Horror Stories for Young Feminists
You may have heard about our previous short story collection, AMONG THE SHADOWS, and our successful kickstarter campaign.
We loved working with our amazing authors; Gretchen McNeil Griffin, Justina Ireland, Phoebe North, Geoffrey Girard, Lydia Kang, Rachel Lewis, Joelle Charbonneau, Kelly Fiore (Kelly Ann Edgeington Stultz), Lenore Appelhans Eisenhour, and Beth G Revis.
Well, we're at it again! Mindy McGinnis, Kate Karyus Quinn, and I are putting together another collection of short stories. This time the theme is dark and feminist...and we're sending out a call for submissions. *Please note that subject matter should be 16+, though there is no restriction on the age of the protagonist.*
1) Must feature a female (or female-identifying) character.

2) All lengths welcome! Stories should be copied into the body of the email. Include a short bio with previous works and submission word count. If you are interested in submitting a novella (more than 15,000 words) please include a short summary as well.

3) Submit to Subject line should include Title and Author Names. Submission Deadline Friday May 11th, 2018.

4) We are reserving spots for previously unpublished authors. Instead of a bio, just note that you're previously unpublished.
THE FINE PRINT: This is an unpaid collection and will be funded by a kickstarter campaign. Authors retain all the rights to their stories. Five author copies will be provided to each contributor, as well as other promotional materials, such as bookmarks and postcards. As with AMONG THE SHADOWS, BETTY BITES BACK will be priced for maximum exposure. We want to move copies! All profits will be put back into advertising. Please check out our previous short story collection AMONG THE SHADOWS. We would be happy to provide you with a complimentary ebook copy!
