If you haven’t heard, each of the stories in the book will be set in a different country. If the publisher is happy with the result, we may turn it into a series. The first volume will cover 20-25 countries, but that leaves us plenty of room to visit other countries in subsequent volumes.
Submissions are open now. While the deadline for submission is December 31, 2013, I’d suggest getting your work in sooner rather than later. At some point I will begin accepting stories and so some countries will no longer be available. (I’ll post a list of the countries taken in the Guidelines so writers won’t wast their time.)
It’s a very exciting project and the response has been great so far. Keep the stories coming!
