Time and Tide Publishing is looking for stories to publish in their kick-off anthologies.

#1 Good witch gone bad
Genre: all except erotica

Theme: Wiggle your nose, hop on your broomstick and ride across the moon with us. We are seeking your bibbidi bobbidi boo gone bad. That’s right… we want your well-crafted good witches to snap and walk on the wild side. Be creative and break the cookie cutter mold by turning your good witch into a scorned lover bent on revenge or a disgruntled postal worker who turns the mail into political advertisements. We want a fresh, new twist on age old legends, fairytales or something you just made up.

Deadline: July 31, 2012
Target release date: October 2012

Stories: 5,000 – 10,000

#2 Erotica
Genre: all

Theme: All heat levels and genres welcome!
To celebrate the launch of Time and Tide’s Touch Line, we are taking submissions for our TOUCH anthology. Please see guidelines on the website (http://timeandtidepublishing.com/Touch%20Submissions.html).

Deadline: September 30, 2012
Target release date: December 2012

Stories: 5,000 – 10,000

Payment: No monetary compensation or royalties will be paid by the publisher. Selected contributors will receive one free print copy of the anthology after publishing.

Please visit the website (http://timeandtidepublishing.com/submissions.html) for more information.

Happy writing!

Just flagging the disconnect between "you give us first rights in all formats" and "you retain the rights to your story":

If accepted, you are giving Time and Tide Publishing:
Exclusive First Publishing Rights to any and all media formats to include but not limited to print and electronic media for one year after publication, the right to use the story for as long as there is demand for the book, the right to edit each story for grammatical errors, and the right to use parts of the book and/or the author’s name for promotion. You retain the rights to your story.

You are giving them first rights (presumably in all languages since English is not specified), (presumably worldwide since territory is not specified), in all formats (presumably including single-title, inclusion in any collection or anthology, print, digital, audio, script, movie, etc,) for one year, plus nonexclusive rights forever. You're retaining nothing but derivative and moral rights for the first year, and nonexclusive rights after that.
