Deb: Seeking Your Best Alaska Writing: The Alaska Sampler 2015

49 Writers - Thu, 12/18/2014 - 6:00am


By now, I hope you’ve heard of the Alaska Sampler, an annual ebook anthology of prose by Alaska’s finest contemporary authors. It’s free to the reader. For the author, it’s a proven discovery tool for increasing readership. And through Jan. 10, 2015, we’re accepting submissions for the Alaska Sampler 2015.
Because the Sampleris offered for free, it consistently ranks high in search results for Alaska books, making it an effective and ongoing means of promotion for contributing authors. As a discovery tool, it enables contributing authors to reach new readers outside their usual genres. As a sampler, it allows authors with upcoming new works on Alaska to offer a preview chapter or excerpt to their readers.
Here’s what readers are saying about the Alaska Sampler 2014:
“I've never been to Alaska, and probably never will go, as it's on the other side of the world from me, but this collection certainly ignited my own interest in the region . . . I've also already downloaded longer works by a couple of the authors that I liked best.”
“I was pleasantly surprised by the writing in the Alaska Sampler . . . I'll be looking up several of the authors in the Sampler to read more of their work.”
“One of the best trips I ever took was to Alaska. This book is a chance to visit again, with a variety of fascinating viewpoints, and without even packing a suitcase! Led to it by one favorite author, walking away with several new favorites.”
“A wonderful compendium of all things Alaska. Please publish one every year or two. Surely there are enough wonderful Alaskan authors.”
For the Alaska Sampler 2015, we’re looking for fresh, original fiction and nonfiction that reveals the unscripted, everyday Alaska that we cherish. Provided the author has the digital rights, submissions may be reprints of previously published work. The best way to discover what sort of work makes the cut is to check out the Alaska Sampler 2014—because, you know, it’s free.
We’re also seeking cover images, both photos and artwork. We’re interested in images that show Alaska in new and unusual ways to use on our cover. You must have the digital rights to images you submit, or they must be in the public domain or under Creative Commons copyright (attribution, commercial, adaptation). Images should be in RGB jpg format and at least 1563 x 2500 pixels in size (1:1.6 ratio).

Submissions must be received by Jan. 10, 2015. To learn more, visit Running Fox Books
