SUBMISSION CALL: Exploring Infinity – The Anthology Sequel to Escaping Infinity

*** ANTHOLOGY SUBMISSION CALL ***

Subs are now open for a new sci-fi/fantasy anthology based on the Dragon Award nominated novel, Escaping Infinity ( https://www.amazon.com/Escaping-Infinity-Richard-Paolinelli/dp/1541392582 ).

I am looking for 10-12 stories. Maximum word count is 10,000 words and the hard minimum word count is 5,000 words.

Stories must be centered around the novel and can range from other people in the hotel (i.e. the person Liz led to that certain door who failed to solve the mystery as Peter did), a part of the hotel not explored, a person at any point in time that encountered the Infinity but did not enter the hotel (remember, once inside there is no exiting), or life on Earth AFTER Peter leads them out of the Infinity.

You can go all the way up until Peter and Liz depart Earth looking for the Manager’s home world, but as the final chapter of Escaping Infinity and the upcoming sequel, Beyond Infinity, will pick up the story from there, please do not wander that far into the future.

Authors royalty payments will be made through BundleRabbit for the e-book and KDP Pages sales. Authors will receive between 4% and 5% of the royalties from those e-book sales. Author’s payment for the Print edition will be a free print copy of the book to each author. You will need to sign up at BundleRabbit if your story is accepted and you will need to provide a physical address for your book to be mailed to you.

Submissions must be in Word doc or docx format. Times New Roman, 12 pt and double-spaced with a return e-mail address and your name and other info in the top left corner. An apprx. word count in the top right corner.

Submission deadline is May 31, 2021.

Submission e-mail: richardpaolinelli@yahoo.com.

The anthology will be released in the fall of 2021, around the time that the sequel is released.

If you have any questions, e-mail me at the address above or PM me here.

  1. Clever. Now I’ll need to re-read the novel and then go over your requirements. Frankly, going super far into the future was the most appealing part. Oh, have you taken into account how different authors might treat your material and characters?

    1. I’m curious to see what they’ll come up with to be honest and you have thousands of years to play with on post-Infinity Earth before Peter and Liz depart, The only reason why I’m not making it unlimited on the time frame is because I don’t want a conflict with what happens in the sequel. That being said, you could go ahead and examine what humanity is doing exploring the Milky Way galaxy while the new ship is roaming about Andromeda. Just a thought.
