Call for Submissions

posted by Sarah E. Holroyd

Submissions are now open for an as-yet untitled character-based Sleeping Cat Books anthology to be published in the fall of 2012. This anthology will be a black and white paperback edition and an ebook edition of short fiction. We will consider any genre, as long as the submission includes the subject character depicted below, and described in the downloadable character profile on our website. No pornographic content, or any material that would not make it into a rated R movie.

Please include a bio paragraph written in third person in the cover letter of your submission. Submissions will only be accepted through the button on our website.

Fiction: no more than 5,000 words.

Deadline for submission: 1 July 2012

Theme: Character (cover image below and character profile on our website)
We have tried to include enough detail to give you a reasonable idea of who this character is without restricting you to any particular location or time. We will entertain any type of submission (sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, mystery, etc.) as long as Cherie is clearly the character we’ve created. She does not have to be the main character in your submission, but she must have a prominent role. You do not have to stick strictly to the character traits we’ve included, but again, she must be recognizable as the same character. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Submission fee: Free

Contributor compensation: Those whose work is chosen for inclusion will receive one complimentary copy of the anthology, and will also be eligible to purchase up to 10 copies at production cost plus S&H, rather than retail.
