  1. Hello,

    I have something that’s around 6,000 words. Is the word count firm or is there some wiggle room? Thanks again.


    1. Hi Bill. Thanks for asking. 5000 is a firm figure. If it goes a couple words over, obviously that’s fine, but 1000 words over will not be accepted. If you can trim it down to the accepted word count, you’re welcome to submit!

  2. Query: I have written a horrific retelling of the classic children’s tale There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly. The protagonist could easily be considered a witch. Is this something you might be interested in, or would I be wasting your time? Thank you.

  3. Hello! The internet magic lead me to this series just now, and I was wondering if you might be doing more Wrapped anthologies in the future?

    1. So glad you found us, Aylee! Although we have several books releasing in 2015, we are not planning more anthologies until at least 2016. Then again, we never know what the future holds!
