Monday Markets - Gods & Monsters - 31 Dec, 2016 (via @booksmugglers)

The Book Smugglers is looking for fiction for their new themed anthology/project:

When it comes to Gods and Monsters, anything goes. You – the author – should take the theme and run with it any way you want. It can be Gods VERSUS Monsters, or Gods but not Monsters, or Monsters without Gods. As usual, we encourage authors to subvert these sample themes, to expand upon what “gods and/or monsters” means, and adapt the prompt to other possible connotations and genres under the Speculative Fiction umbrella.

They're paying $0.06USDc/word for stories from 1,500 to 17,500 words, with a cap of $500 USD (that's 8,333 words FYI). The stories will be published online and possibly in ebook and print formats (which will produce another 50% net royalty for the authors.

Note well:

We are VERY keen on receiving Romance stories – or stories with strong romantic elements. We are VERY keen on receiving Horror stories – or stories with strong horror elements.
