Tudor Secrets – Anthology

Submission Deadline – May 3, 2021

Travel back to the Tudor period, one of the most romantic periods in the histories of England and Wales, with this exciting upcoming anthology. DCL Publications is looking for well-written, period-specific stories of romance and intrigue for an anthology titled ‘Tudor Secrets.’ The Tudor period of history occurred between 1485 and 1603 and coincides with the dynasty of the House of Tudor, whose first monarch was Henry VII. Authors are encouraged to take a true-life person from the period and incorporate that individual into a fictitious romance, without infringing on any well-known romances or marriages of that person. It is a heavy task that the most genuinely talented authors shall be able to conquer.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, May 3, 2021, by 5 PM Eastern Standard Time. Submissions should be emailed to DCL editor Jean Watkins at darkcastlelordspublications@gmail.com with the header ‘Tudor Secrets Submission.’ Attach your submission as a WORD doc document. In the body of the email, include a brief synopsis (blurb) of your story. Stories should be well-written and be read over to ensure minimum typos and errors. Please use Times New Roman 12 pt font and 1.5 line spacing, with a 0.5 indention on the first line of each paragraph. Poorly formatted manuscripts and roughly written manuscripts will not be accepted. Word count minimum is 11,500. Word count maximum is 17,500. Stories must be fully developed with a definitive beginning, middle, and conclusion. Submissions may not be a part of another series or a sequel to another story. In other words, submissions must be able to ‘stand on their own two feet’ without the reader relying on another story to introduce or conclude it.

‘Tudor Secrets’ will be available in electronic and print formats in late Fall 2021. It will also be available in audio-book at a time to be determined. Authors whose submissions have been accepted will receive a share of royalties on a quarterly basis for the length of the seven year contract required. Space is limited in this anthology. Authors may be required to take part in special online promotional events and virtual book tours. Authors whose submissions have been accepted will be notified within 30 days of submission receipt.

New Release: Scion: Book III: House of the Twelfth Planet

Running for his life from a despotic ruler, Caius has left his ancestral home on the planet Thelona, arriving at Earth’s Colony Twelve in the company of his human former slave, Lela. She is no longer a slave on any earth colony, but it’s immaterial to Caius.

For Lela, on the other hand, the fact that she is free is everything. To whom does she owe her loyalty—the humans like herself on Colony Twelve, or the Thelonian Lord who loves her?
