The goal of AnthologyBuilder is to become a printable library of sorts, a place where readers can easily find reprints by their favorite authors and have them delivered as a professionally bound book with beautiful cover art.
Submissions: AnthologyBuilder is seeking fiction of up to 50,000 words in a variety of genres including, but not limited to, mainstream, thriller, mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. We regret that we do not accept erotica, nor stories with excessive violence or sexuality.
We buy English-language reprint rights and request that unsolicited submissions be previously published in a paying market.
Authors should be aware that AnthologyBuilder does not have the resources of a large publishing house and does not copy-edit manuscripts. In order to preserve your professional dignity, please proofread submissions carefully.
Payment: We pay a pro rata royalty each time a story is purchased. Specifics can be read in our author contract.
Submission Process: Stories may be submitted through our online submission form. (You will need to create an account before submitting.)
We evaluate submissions partially based on the market in which they originally appeared. If you suspect that we may not be familiar with your story's market, please include some brief information about it and a link to its guidelines in the "comments" field.
Once your story is submitted, it may take up to ten days for us to determine whether your submission is a good fit for AnthologyBuilder and to format it for use in our database. We will send you an email once we have made a decision on your story.
Manuscript Format: Please use standard manuscript format, using italics rather than underlined text to signify emphasis. Scene breaks should be denoted with a single number sign (#) rather than with asterisks.
