As you're no doubt aware the Haven Quarterly became a big part of this site's fundraising for more than a year under the completely amazing guidance of Steffie. However, since life made her slip away from here we've been continually running into obstacles in producing an issue without her. Though Issue 5 is not yet dead, my own situation opens the doors wide for a completely different path.

Everyone round here tends to enjoy a good story or several, and while there have been a few TF/TG novellas produced and sold, there are very, very few collections of them from a variety of authors. I see this as a challenge to us, a challenge to produce a collection or several and place them for sale with the proceeds going to the Haven whether it be sold on Amazon, Lulu, or Barnes and Noble.

Now, what we're looking for is stories of at least 5000 words in length, preferably something new and never before seen, however existing works will also be considered as we are going to hit a market that may never have seen them. The collection will be sold under the Haven Bookworks publishing label, with each story being sold separately as well as in a volume of collected works at a discount. Stories will be credited as authored by either a pen name of your choice or your real name if you choose. Keep in mind this collection will be sold off of the Haven to individuals who may never have heard of this community.

Editing will be provided by the publisher in order to ensure quality of content, but feel free to have a trusted friend run through it first if you like. Edited copy will be provided to each author. Don't worry about font, font size, or any other formatting as it will be standardized for the book.

Finally, send your story to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., preferably attached as a text file, Word Document, or Open Office Document. If we receive more stories than anticipated for the collection you may be asked if we can defer a story to the next volume. Send as many or as few stories as you like, contributors will receive an award featuring the cover on their Haven account as well as a copy of their story in either epub or mobi format.

We hope to be able to put the first volume up for sale in January, but also see this as an ongoing project for the future spanning multiple volumes. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
