  1. Nice information.

    I’m in, I have some pretty dark work properly mixed with some Afro-juju.

    1. Princess Arah (@sarah)

      Its quite welcomed as long as its spicy and entertaining.

  3. What kind of format is this anthology appearing in? Hard-copy as in published book or just an online pdf?

    1. Princess Arah (@sarah)

      For now, it will be published online with Amazon as stated in the information, however the publication of the hard copy depends on the rate of the sales online. Every person who contributed will have a copy once the hard copy is out. I hope i answered your question?

  4. Now where’s @raymond? This anthology desperately needs you…

    I’ll see if I can borrow someone’s mind…

    1. You stole those words from my keyboard.


  5. Yeah, this really needs raymond. I’ll see if i can fix something up. Nice information.

      You have got to do that real fast, as there is no time to waste

    I wanted to post a story or two,but the information that it must be 2000 words discourages me because,i had to trim my stories from over 4000 words to meet the 2500 criteria for short stories,shelving off another 500 words or so will make me lose my narrative style and artistry in a bid to write for a particular market.Let me know when something of 2500 word is needed.Thanks

      sorry that the word limit threw you off. Howowa hates to discourage anyone. Due to such complains recently, howowa has decided to remove the word limit. From hence forth there is no word limit so you are free to submit. tell others as well

  7. Is it possible to present the story in a poetry form?
