A number of Fiction4All imprints now accept submissions for their anthologies:--

            Gravestone Press - publishes Horror, Supernatural, Paranormal and Dark Fantasy

            Double Dragon – publishes Science Fiction and Fantasy

            Fiction4All – publishes general fiction not covered by the previous two imprints

            4Play Press – publishes erotica


Submissions for novels and novellas should be made through the Fiction4All Publishing Hub at – you will need to become a member first as that is the basis for our publishing software and royalty payment systems. We welcome new and experienced authors who write in the genres related to the Gravestone Press imprint.


Submissions for our Anthologies are handled differently.  On our site at we have special pages dedicated to our calls for anthologies. These pages show you what we are looking for in terms of both subject matter and presentation. It is essential all writers submitting to our anthologies follow the instructions – scripts will be rejected if you don’t.


Within each anthology you are welcome to submit up to three related stories. You will be required to join us as a member first and set up a basic author profile (pen name and biography).If your script is accepted, then you will receive a Publishing Agreement which will contain the final details for you to agree.  These will be based on the information below. Payment of a one-off fee (as per our rate card below) will be credited to your Fiction4All member account upon publication of the anthology. To receive payment you must meet two conditions. First you must have a PayPal account, which you will need to add to your member account. If you are overseas (not UK) then please be aware that PayPal deduct a processing fee for any payment we make to you. Fiction4All pays authors using PayPal either on a weekly or monthly or quarterly basis (authors’ choice) but you must have a minimum of $10 or £10 in your account to receive payment as otherwise the PayPal charges swallow up most of it!


Terms of Publishing


Your submission, unless the anthology specifically states it can be a previously published story, must be an original, unpublished work. You must be the sole author of the work and your work must not contain any libellous material, any terrorist-related content or any religious hatred.


We reserve the right to make alterations to any text without your permission on the basis such changes will be for the purposes of formatting the script to our in-house style, resolving any spelling or grammar issues and ensuring characters and locations are named consistently. We will not change the story itself other than for the above checks.


If your submission is accepted into an anthology, we will publish it as an eBook on or own sites, and on 3rd party sites including Kindle and Smashwords. Smashwords distribute to Barnes & Noble, Apple and other sites on our behalf.


We will also create a quality trade paperback edition of the anthology using one of our own ISBNs. The paperback edition will be printed by Ingrams/Lightning Source and included in the Ingrams Global Connect marketing catalogue (except for our erotica anthologies) – available to all online and bricks and mortar retailers. We will also consider a paperback edition created within the Amazon/Kindle print platform.


You will be able to buy the digital or print version of the anthology either through the Fiction4All or Fiction4Adults websites depending on the genre of the anthology.  We operate a number of newsletters which advertise new releases – if you subscribe to one of them you will be kept informed!


As author you retain copyright to your work. As publisher we retain copyright to the anthology for as long as it continues to sell. We will revert rights to any anthology we take out of sale. The copyright notice within the anthology will be listed to the Publisher and author will receive credit within the anthology both as author of a particular title and there is scope at the back of each anthology to include a short author biography for any authors wanting to be included.


If Fiction4All does not publish an anthology within 12 months of it being opened, rights will revert to the author. Likewise Fiction4All may withdraw the offer to publish at any time up to the date of publication and again rights will revert to the author.




The Fiction4All Anthologies are a relatively new venture and as such we are currently limited in what we can pay to writers. If the venture continues to expand as it has started, we hope to soon be able to pay more, but in part that is down to our authors making our anthologies known amongst their existing fan bases and on social media outlets.


As of 21st August 2021 our rate card is as follows and is based on the edited script:


Under 500 words – no royalty – though you will still get exposure for your creativity


501 to 1000 words - £3 flat rate fee

1001 to 2000 words - £5 flat rate fee

2001 to 3000 words - £10 flat rate fee

3001 to 5000 words - £15 flat rate fee


Over 5000 words (when the call asks for this size story) - £15 + £5 for each 1000 words over 5000.


We are also offering a royalty split between Fiction4All and contributors. This works on the basis of a pot of available money is created for each sale and this is then divided amongst the contributors based on the contributing word count compared to the entire word count.


I am personally hoping we will be able to increase the rates during 2022 and the early signs are promising.
