Rhonda Parrish is after submissions to her new anthology (via Tycho Press), ‘Swashbuckling Cats’::
I’m putting together an anthology full of feisty felines on the high seas! I want pirate cats, and Viking cats. Submariner cats and explorer cats. This book is going to be filled with adventure-loving cats, puns and fun. I want it to be a wild, rollicking ride complete with sword fights, sea monsters, treasure hunting, discovering new worlds and lots and lots of kittehs.
Be careful not to get too caught up in the fun and forget to include a strong plot and detailed characters for your story, though.
Sounds like a lot of fun to me, tbh. Rhonda is looking for short stories up to 9,000 words, paying $50 CAD and a paperback contributor copy per piece. Submissions close July 31st.
