Fiction entries should be at least 2,500 but no longer than 7,500 words
*Entries can include romance but must not include sexual content, profanity or graphic language. Kissing is fine but if any entry includes sexual content, profanity or graphic language or any other content or wording which would give it an “adult-only content” type rating, the entry will be returned to the entrant with a request to revise, if the content in question is not removed, the entry will be returned again and the entrant will be dropped from the contest.
Winning entries will be published in an anthology available to public for purchase. Winners must agree to give exclusive rights, meaning Little CAB Press gets to be the only one to publish these winning stories for the duration of the publication, after which time rights revert to the author to do with whatever they wish: republishing with another company, magazine, etc. Winners will receive royalties based on sales of the published work.
