Neither are required. Feel free to submit without them - I just mention mailing list and author page because I will include them for the authors who want them in the anthology.

Hope people have had some interesting ideas. I'm doing the same as last time - getting started on something then realising it would be better elsewhere. The first two things I tried writing for The Newcomer became chapters in a novel, and the third became a novella.

I have to start over. The story I brainstormed with my cousin is now going to be the prequel funnel story to a science fiction romance series.

I have plotting and brainstorming on my agenda for this weekend.

I think I'm going to do something from the POV of one of the enemies in my main series.

I've planned in some writing time so I will have something to submit! I have two ideas, one fitting with my story in the Newcomer, and one that fits with something I'm releasing at the end of June!

I've got my idea! A space station security officer who keeps the peace in a pragmatic way. He is a good guy but has to keep on the good side of the mob in order to be able to keep working. Then he discovers a plot to disrupt the elections and has to decide whether to step up.

Are you still looking for entries?  Is this going to be an ebook on amazon?  I could probably put together a short enough story before the end.

I write space opera Scifi.  If you like heavy action and deep concepts check out my stuff.

Yes. Still open for entries.
It will be an ebook on Amazon and all other major retailers. It will also be a paperback.

A month and a half to go. Already had some pretty interesting entries.
Four months since release and The Newcomer is still in the top 100 in its category. I've got even higher hopes for The Officer.

I wrote something for The Newcomer, but it twisted during the writing process and the final version didn't fit the theme at all. Funny enough, it would be a perfect fit for The Officer.

I'm sure I can tell when you're promoting because every so often I'll see a spike in visits to my blog.

Funny how things work out, isn't it? I look forward to reading it.

Glad to hear it. It is in my autoresponder sequence too, so whenever I get an influx of subscribers from promoting one of my own books there is a bump in The Newcomer a few weeks later.

Just starting out and getting set for my first books launch soon(ish) but I can definitely hammer something that short together if you've got room still?

Finally done.  Okay.  I wrote it yesterday and finished it today.  need to walk away for a few days and then edit.  Then send to editor for more polishing.  Looks like 7,200+ words.

Hopefully this meets the requirements for acceptance (new series I am templating this will be backstory)

No matter what.  STAY POSITIVE!

I'll start looking for a cover this week. I'm working hard to finish my current novel to clear the decks ready for The Officer's submissions deadline.

Posting to have a reminder on this. I've got a short that I'm working on that would fit here I think. Military SF.

Started properly plotting out my story today! (I knew what it was already, but some of the finer details needed working out!) Excited to start working on it!

Finished drafting. Ready to start writing as soon as I've put the finishing touches on the last two chapters of my next novel.

Just saw this, posting so I'll remember to come back to it. Got two stories that would fit. Not sure which one to submit. Guess I'll go read both real quick and make a decision. This will be good as I've just published a sequel, publishing another sequel this week, and entering a book into Kindle Scout in (hopefully) two weeks. All the little bumps add up.
