Scerina Elizabeth (lisascerina79) | 60 comments Anytime :)


message 33: by Simi (new)

Simi Sunny | 173 comments Just one more question (sorry again). I just finished typing up my story, and I have 5336 (I believe). Is it ok? Just double checking.

Scerina Elizabeth (lisascerina79) | 60 comments Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection:
I want to mention a little something in regards to the Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection in regards to having your short stories edited and proofread before submitting them to Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection - this is more like a warning.  If your work is not edited nor proofread and does not read right or look good grammatically - it will not be entered into the Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection. My editor is very busy with editing others as well as my own books and she does not have the time to thoroughly go through each short story submitted to make sure all is well with it, one of the rules of the anthology collection was to have your story edited and proofread prior to submission.  If you fail to do so and in the end even after you signed the contact and I approve it myself, if my editor goes through it and find significant errors and it does not read nor look good - I will immediately reject it and not have it apart of the Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection.  I will contact you about it and give you till the 30th of November to have it properly edited and proofread before you can re-submit it.  

Another thing I want to touch on in regards to the Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection is the legal contract for Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection. Once your story has been approved and entered into the collection, you will have (7) days to read and look over the contract completely either by yourself or with your own personal lawyer, make sure you fully understand it, sign it and return back to me.  You can either mail it back via postal mail or scan a copy of your signature on it and email me the scan copy. You will also need to fill out any highlighted areas on the contract with your own personal information and I will need a copy of that as well for my own records.  If you need further assistance or clarification, you more than welcome to talk with my lawyer Umar Farooq, I can have him call you should you need to talk to him.  For any other questions or assistance in regards to Mistletoe Kisses Anthology Collection itself, feel free to ask me and I will be more than happy to assist you to the best of my abilities.

Quick questions, how long are we signing over our rights to our stories for the Anthology? And, who are you publishing it with exclusive to Amazon or wide? When will the winner of the short story contest be announced?
