Always the Fine Print

When you're reading the guidelines for anything always read the fine print and read to the bottom of the page.  I found this in an anthology call today:

How much does it cost to participate?

"We’re asking for $25 from each participant to help cover the cost of the cover, website, graphic design, marketing, editing, formatting, etc. We’re also asking for $25 toward the cost of ads for the release. So $50 total to participate, though you’re welcome to donate more so that we can book more ads and do more creative things."

And this was after they stated at the beginning that they were supplying all of these things.  Watch your backs out there.

Sandra, Thanks for staying on top of these calls.

I don't find them all Leroy, but if it helps writers to take a closer look at the guidelines I'm happy to post about them.

Well, just reading that pisses me off. Thanks for the heads-up, Sandra!
