So, last week I posted about the possibility of creating an anthology to raise money for my local branch of Cats Protection. I think there has been enough interest to go ahead with it so I am going to add a sign up list at the bottom of this post for those who want to be involved.
Deciding what kind of things to put in the book is a challenge, because the majority of us don't usually write about cats lol. However, I think it might work if we stick to some simple rules:
The story MUST have a cat in it (obviously :p )
You can write a story within your usual genre - even if it's a sci-fi cat, or a paranormal cat, or a love story that has a cat in it
You can write a poem if you prefer
I won't be putting an official word count limit on this, because I don't know how many entries we'll have - I suspect it won't be huge amounts - but obviously, novel length fiction is no good. Let's call it an absolute maximum of 10,000 words, but I will have a better idea about this when I find out how many people want to take part.
When I have the final number of people who want to be involved, I will post further information, but as a rough guideline, I plan to gather the entries in the next 8-10 weeks.
Thank you so much for your help with this!
