A Few Observations Regarding Hidden Animals

We are entering our fourth week of the submission period and we are already getting close to having enough material for our new project. If you are thinking about submitting something, please don’t delay.

We are also toying with the idea of changing the format a little. Rather than publishing one book, we are exploring the idea of publishing two separate titles, Flora and Fauna. This may just be a division that we make with one book, depending upon the number of submissions we receive. However, if you would like to increase your chances of acceptance, you might think along the lines of a
plant based cryptids (such as the moss man or the Leshy). We have already accepted a number of man-eating-tree stories, so these will be a tough sell.

Please follow the submission guidelines. Submissions
must be sent as an attachment. This allows us to read the material blind and not be influenced by material which may be found in the e-mail.

Remember that we are looking for new takes or spins on standard legends, not just a rehash of material you can find on-line. Some of our best material so far has either provided a new look at an old creature or included a blend of the story and the story-tellers.

Finally, please direct all inquiries you may have to
editor@thedragonsroost.net to insure prompt response. E-mails sent to other addresses may not be seen for weeks at a time.

Congratulations!
