Winter Hearts... the story so far...

In 2018, a band of sapphic fiction authors got together with the plan to make a boxset like no other.

The plan was to submit short stories—between 10,000-30,000—words all around the theme of Christmas and the winter season.

The stories would be combined into one boxset and sold for a low price, with all profits going to charity.

In the end 13 authors submitted stories and Winter Hearts became a reality.

The results were impressive and in just two and a half months we sold over 2,700 copies and achieved a million page reads on Kindle Unlimited. We made over $7,000 for our chosen charities—The Trevor Project and Stonewall.

So… naturally… we’re going to do it again this year.

Be a part of something special...

We’re currently recruiting authors who want to be a part of Winter Hearts 2019, have their short story seen by thousands, and donate money to LGBT+ charities.

While this is another winter anthology, this time the theme is a little wider and will include anything vaguely to do with the season. This means it can be a Christmas story, or a New Year story, it can also be a story about snow, cold, family gatherings, the changing of the year… etc. This theme should be wide enough that anyone—even our spec-fic authors–should be able to get involved.


In order to be included in the box set you will need to supply me with your short story (between 10,000-30,000 words) no later than the 1st August 2019. This will need to be provided in Microsoft Word (or similar) and will need to have been edited. (If you want to be involved but do not have an editor then please contact me and I’ll make arrangements for you).

Further Information

Your short story will be included in the Winter Hearts 2019 box set which will run from the middle-November through to the end of January. Once Winter Hearts is removed from sale at the end of January; your story is yours again.

The box set will only be available in eBook format (due to size it cannot be a paperback). As per last year, it will be available wide at an introductory price of $0.99 before being put up to $2.99. In December it will be put into Kindle Unlimited.

You will not be paid any royalty as this is a charity box set with all profits going to charity.
