Teapot Tales 2 - The Table of Contents

Here is the table of contents for the "Teapot Tales: Pirates, Mermaids and Monsters of the Sea" anthology. The stories are listed in the order they will appear in the book. To make it fair, I started by typing up the titles in alphabetical order and numbering them. I then used a random number generator to determine which order the stories would be listed. Once a story by an author was listed, if a number for one for of their other stories was selected before all authors had at least one story added to the line-up, their story was put at the beginning of the author stories for authors who had written two stories, and this was done again for authors who had written three stories. That way, with fourteen authors contributing stories, all authors would have one story listed in the table of contents within the first twelve chapters.

Last year, we had 22 or 23 contributing authors and 33 stories. Because of this, if anyone else wants to send in another story (3 total stories per author is the limit) or wants to send in a story and hasn't already sent in a story, if you do so while I am still compiling and editing the anthology (it will take me two weeks at a minimum), I will accept it, as long as it is well written. I'll take more drawings for the interior too.

However, since we have 26 stories, this anthology will go ahead either way. As long as the anthology is at least 101 total pages, it will be able to have the title printed on the spine of the print edition, and that is my requirement for adding a print edition.

Please look over the title of your story and your author name as it is listed and let me know of any errors or any changes you want to make. Also, if you haven't already sent in a 3rd person author bio, please do so this week.
