Nothing will be published on the web at all. Haggis, the judges and I will be the only people who ever see the entries. But every writer will receive the notes and feedback from their story, winner or not. You are free to submit it anywhere after the contest is over (considering the top prize, you wouldn't want it to be on submission then win publication with BLB).
For the BLB part of it, the winner isn't 'stuck' with us. Winning isn't a binding agreement on the author's part. Nothing will be done with the story if the author chooses to sub elsewhere.
I'm happy to format into a .pdf with a cover even if the winner chooses to keep the story and self publish.
Can you submit more than one story? Nope.
I'm not trying to get a leg up on anyone, it would take more than that to do so, I'm just not a good judge of my crap and don't know which one is better (or not as bad as the other one). If not, then is it okay to ask someone's opinion that isn't a judge and is not participating in the contest? Yes.
How does mythology fit into the 'no vampires and such' rule? I'm not talking about using Poseidon or anything, but is borrowing anything at all verbotten?
I like to play with borrowed things when I write. Hmmm.
