Battle Goddess Productions

Book Publishing & More

Battle Goddess Productions is a big fan of Fantasy in all shapes and forms. We enjoy hack-n-slash adventures, the inner workings of Dark Fantasy, to a bucket load of  paranormal, occult or mythology, to even the funny awkward reads.

Last year I was blown away with how often I was asked for advice on writing and formatting books, both print and digital formats. I have heard your cries and seen the scars of your battles in writing and publishing. In 2016, I am proud to say I will be starting Battle Goddess Productions. My aim is to help you be armed to win this war of words, layouts, formats, and guideline demands needed in order to produce a stellar end product. Whether you are aiming for an eye-catching paperback or an eBook that takes advantage of hyperlinks that connect your readers to your site or allow them to jump from chapter-to-chapter, I am here to provide that service!

Demonic Anthologies Volume IV

Demonic Classics: Once Upon A Debacle

The Pitch:

Demonic Classics is quite the challenge this time around. We are looking for Authors and Writers who want to add a dark humor twist to a fanfiction angle installment. Whether you intend to retell the whole story in a shortened format or dive deep into a famous scene and unravel it from within, we want your story to be inspired by a Public Domain literary work. We expect irony, a laugh, an ‘Oh no’, and some satirical twists to unfold. This year we are looking for stories between 2,000 to 5,000 words. Do not limit yourself to the list below, but feel free to email us if you need a title checked. Gutenberg.org is a great resource for doing so!

Rights, Usage, Compensation?

You retain rights to the work. I am simply approving it to be added with your permission to publish it in my collection for both eBook and Paperback. We are perfectly fine if its been published before, online some place, or even if you are submitting it to others. It's your Story and a piece you feel deserves to live in a tome on a reader's shelf. Unfortunately, I do not have the financial means to compensate you for your work, though I hope in the future I never have to say this again. In the meantime, all authors get to purchase books at a discount and keep 100% of the profit made when selling the paperbacks in person. We also send all authors a contributors copy on us. 

We will be exclusively on Amazon.com in the first 90 days in order to take advantage of marketing opportunities. Paperbacks will be created and details of how Authors can get copies will be disclosed within the final group when pricing is known. We also promise some awesome chapter header designs for each author as a way to express our gratitude along with access to some stellar memes, banners, and marketing files for you to be able to push the book.

 

This is our way to give back to the community and give authors, new and old, a chance to grow and reach new readers. This book is meant to be a fun writing activity as well as a fun read that promises simply, a good time!

Where Do I Submit?

So you've read as far as here huh? Before you scroll further, make sure you've edited and polished your work the best you can! Be sure that you read the word count range and formatted your work to reflect my requests! Why? Because this will be my first means of declining submissions and I don't want to have to do that to anyone's work. I expect some grammar and quirky editing spoofs, but if I can't comfortably read through the story, then I have to also decline said work. SO, PLEASE! Take a moment and give it one last look before you submit! THANK YOU! Now that we've gotten the disclaimer out of the way, here's where and how to submit:
 

  • Subject Line:   "BGP QUERY: TITLE HERE by YOUR NAME"

  • Write me an email! Say hello, introduce yourself, and add a short one liner (or two) blurb of what your story is about!

  • Attach File: Once more, DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT, and PDF File Formats are all I will accept. Anything else will be declined. Forgot to attach your file? Resend it! No need to panic!
