Meanwhile, if you are an author, I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity to do more for the victims of this terrible disaster. The altruistic erotica imprint Coming Together is rushing to put together an anthology of erotic stories focused on weather, to benefit Mercy Corps, one of the main charities working on the ground in the affected area.
Here are the details:
Coming Together: Through the Storm
Editor: Nicole Gestalt
Publisher: Coming Together
Deadline: November 30, 2013
Payment: Proceeds benefit Mercy Corps, which is on site wherever aid is needed, particularly when a natural disaster occurs. http://www.mercycorps.org
The Coming Together series has for many years raised money for various charities and the latest anthology will be raising money for Mercy Corps who take aid over to disaster areas around the world. The need is urgent and so there is a very short deadline on this anthology.
Word Count: Minimum 5k but can be very much more
Payment: Since this is a charity anthology there is no payment other than the knowledge you've helped, although all authors who have a story in it will get a copy of the final pdf.
Theme: All the stories submitted need to have a weather theme
Genre: This is an erotic anthology although I will accept romance based stories. Any pairing(s), gender or genre will be considered. Give me your best just make sure it has weather in there!
The No-No's: No scat, bestiality, under age sex, golden showers, rape or forced sex. If in doubt ask.
Email your submissions as a .doc,.rtf,.txt to reliefanthology 'at' gmail 'dot' com
Format of submission: Please send the submissions double spaced in Times New Roman, 12 point black font. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space (using normal double spacing please do not add an extra line between the paragraphs). Please submit your final, complete and totally edited version of the story.
Deadline: 30th November

I know the deadline is tight but CT does accept previously published stories as long as you own the rights.
If you have questions, feel free to contact Nicole, or me.
You don't get paid when you write for Coming Together, but let me assure you, there are other rewards. (And by the way, CT anthologies have taken honors in several EPPIE contests!)
