Beyond the Cogs
 A Steampunk Anthology

Publication Date: November 17th, 2021

SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED



A world reimagined


This anthology contains three impeccable steampunk stories. Ranging from the gritty tale of battling a creature who steals the souls of others, to dabbling in the taboo art of imbuing a human soul into an automaton, and even a man venturing back home only to discover he's been demonized.


The Soulless Ones by C. Vonzale Lewis

The Rogue of Vangard by Nicholas J. Evans

Gossamer & Thorns by Elle Beaumont


For those who love adventure in new worlds, gritty stories, and heart-wrenching tales, this collection is sure to resonate with you!

Shakespeare Retelling Anthology

Submission Deadline: February 1st 2022

Publication Date: June 2022

When it comes to wit William Shakespeare was a master! His plays have been retold many times over, but what happens when even more fantastical and whimsical elements are added?

Twelfth Night with a fae spin? Hamlet with vampires? Werewolves running amok in The Tempest?

Dive into the stories we all know and put your own creative spin on them with some form of fantasy (no science fiction please). Each story can include romance, horror, gender-bending, or whimsy. Must be New Adult-Adult audience, and no previously published pieces.

Each submission must contain the key elements to the story they are retelling.

Eg. Beatrice and Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing must quarrel, it doesn’t matter the reasoning (go ahead and create that backstory!) and Hero must have a falling out with Claudio. (Do they get back together, does she truly die?)

We are looking for 10-14 amazing short stories/novellas between 5-15k.

The submission fee will be 50$. This will cover the production costs and also marketing for the anthology.

Submission deadline: February 1st, 2022

Please ensure all of your submissions are professionally edited upon submission.
