Important Update on Our Publication Calendar

For a number of reasons, we have decided to consolidate our anthologies down to Hashtag Queer and the Queer Theater series.

Any work already submitted to the Queer Around the World, Geek Out, Queer Families, Queer Youth, Funny Queer, Queer Faith and Pan’s Ex series’ CURRENTLY will be considered for Hashtag Queer. 

Any work that would be appropriate for one of those other anthologies can be submitted to Hashtag Queer.

Payment for writers and artists contributing to any anthologies will published will be a split of the net income from sales of that book with the publishers and other contributors, as follows:

Net income = Retail price – costs of printing and distribution

Printing and distribution costs vary depending on which of the two printers/distributors we use (Amazon & Ingram) processed the sale. 

Of the net income from each book, the Publishers will keep 50% and the other 50% will be split evenly among all the writers and artists who contributed work to the book. Generally, each of our anthologies have between 14 and 40 contributors. 

Because we are a tiny company, royalties will be calculated once per year on the anniversary of the book’s publication date and payments along with documentation of sales will be distributed within 30 days afterward. 

* Please note: If you have already submitted work to us for an upcoming anthology, and you wish to withdraw that piece from consideration due to this change in payment structure, just let us know.
