Comfort From Beyond Anthology

Posted by Sally Clark on Saturday, February 8, 2020
Comfort From Beyond Anthology
...from Jim Bell

The main theme of this book is overcoming grief related to the death of a loved one. There is the assurance given that a loved one is in heaven. Or if one’s faith already has that assurance then there can even be the hint of the loved one’s imminent presence as a comfort sense by God.

Per usual, Guideposts wants to purchase all rights. Those of you who have been around for a while know I always remind you that the publisher is only buying the story as you've presented it. They are NOT purchasing your experience. You still own your experience and can write about it in different ways and different formats (for instance, in devotional or how-to form, or with a focus other than answered prayer). This is something to consider as you decide whether or not you want to sell all rights to your piece.

In Comfort from Beyond the reader is encouraged by the fact that God can bring comfort in a number of supernatural ways. Those different encounters will comprise the various chapters. By “loved one” we include anyone that had a special and deep relationship with us while still alive. This includes a spouse, any family member, close friends, and even our pets.

So the stories to qualify should include at least one of the following:

* Sensing a departed loved one’s presence. (For instance, seeing a shared favorite bird on the top of their headstone. Or even suddenly smelling the perfume that mother wore, etc.)

* Finding a new life direction after a loved one’s death. (Dad had always encouraged his daughter to open a bakery, but she never found the courage until after he died, etc.)

* Receiving signs of all kinds pointing to the loved one

* Dreams and visions

* Hearing God’s voice directly

* Angel encounters (An actual visit by an angel that gives comfort after the death of a loved one.)

* Loved ones feeling at peace at the time of passing. (These aren’t stories of a family member feeling comfort after the death of a loved one, but of the person whose passing feeling at peace while dying and that gives peace to a family member as well. The person who’s passing has some sort of a spiritual encounter at the time of death.)

For this project we’ll consider original, unpublished stories of 1500 to 2000 words. The stories should have a creative title, an attention-grabbing introduction, main body with a conflict or challenge, and a clear, satisfying resolution with God’s supernatural activity clearly indicated. They need to be descriptive, rooted in time and place, with a realistic portrayal of the characters and their spiritual growth.

They also need to be substantive stories rather than mere testimonies or teachings. Our due date is March 1, but we would appreciate your submission even sooner, which will give you a greater chance of acceptance. We prefer original stories but you may also submit previously published stories that you own full rights for and are not currently in print with a major publisher.

Please send your manuscript attached to the e-mail. Send your manuscript in normal manuscript formatting in Times New Roman, 16-point, with your full contact information—name, address, phone number, and e-mail address on the first page.  We are offering a one-time fee of $50 for your story.                             

Please direct all inquiries and manuscripts to my colleague, Jeanette Littleton, whose email address is: supernaturalstories2@earthlink.net

If this e-mail has been forwarded to you, and you can’t submit to this call, but would like to hear about other editorial needs as they arise, please send us your e-mail address and we’ll add you to our notification list. If you wish to pass on this publishing opportunity to other qualified writers we would appreciate it.

We also give periodic updates and answer questions on our Facebook page, which you may find and join at https://www.facebook.com/groups/993320770756877
