21 Days of Grace: Stories That Celebrate God’s Greatest Gift
Christian Author Kathy Ide is putting together a series of compilations of short fictional stories (1500-1700 words), accompanied by Life Applications to help readers glean scriptural truths from those stories (100-200 words). BroadStreet Publishing will be doing this in a 5×7 hardcover gift-book format. Bios (50-60 words) of contributing authors will be featured at the end of each story or at the end of the book.
The story must be FICTION. No true stories (not even true stories written with fiction techniques). Third person is preferable. (First person tends to have the feel of a true story.) Contemporary, historical, or biblical. (Will consider futuristic.) Past tense is preferable to present tense (although present tense will be considered).
Life Application should provide thought-provoking questions and comments that help readers process how the story applies to their lives. Avoid telling readers what they must/should do; instead share what they can do.
Each contributing author will receive ten complimentary copies of the published book. Contributors may purchase additional copies at 65% off the suggested retail price for sale or for giveaway (as gifts or for promotional purposes).
Deadline: January 1, 2015
