Title: Bad-A$$ Faeries 2: Just Plain Bad

Premise: Urban Fantasy stories about tough faeries. Basically in professions or with interests that you would least likely expect faeries to be in. For this volume a faerie must
be the antagonist. In other words, both bad-a$$ and bad. This is not to say there can’t be good faeries in the story as well. (for those that aren’t sure what constitutes urban fantasy,
it is a story in a modern setting with fantasy elements).

Word Count: 5,000 – 7,000 words

Payment: One comp copy per author and a pro rata portion of $1.25 each book sold

Deadline: November 30, 2007

Ideas to Avoid:
(Used in first volume) Biker Faeries, mob faeries, detective faeries, ghetto faeries, assassin faeries, ossuary faeries, cowboy faeries, indian faeries, street urchin faeries, Puck, gang faeries

(Submitted for second volume) Nazi elves, world war two faeries, faerie reaper, pirate faeries, heavy metal faeries, faerwolf, corporate raider faeries, repo faerie, evil tooth faerie

Stories We Might Like to See:
bounty-hunter faerie, hocky or rugby player faerie, mercenary faeries, teamster faeries, construction worker faeries, robber faeries/bandit faeries … that kind of thing. And one thing I’d really like to see is a cops-and-robber faeries story.

Keep in mind, though a faerie has to be a bad guy, that doesn’t mean their can’t be good faeries in the story, too.

Word Count: 5,000 – 7,000 words

Payment: One comp copy per author and a pro rata portion of $1.00 each book sold
