An Alphabet of Embers reading period, update

We’re about 2 weeks away from the end of the reading period for An Alphabet of Embers. We are reading until Sep 30th (inclusive of that day).

We’ve received many wonderful stories, and are hoping to receive many more before closing to submissions. Please do not be discouraged from submitting! You’ll never know whether something will fit unless you send it in for consideration.

A few things which are in the guidelines and which I’d like to reiterate:

1) I will consider up to two stories per author. If you have submitted one story already, you can submit another. Please do not submit more than two.

2) No simultaneous submissions. If you want to send your piece elsewhere, please withdraw it from AoE first.

3) Please check the guidelines before submitting!

RESPONSE TIMES: I will send all responses after the submissions window closes. I will respond to all submissions before the end of October.

Happy writing and submitting! This anthology will rock.
