Dark Dominions – A Fantasy Anthology

Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to announce that the Kickstarter for Dark Dominions, a fantasy anthology created in support of gender equality, has gone live!

So, what is Dark Dominions?

From the Kickstarter site:

“The Founders and Editors of WriterWriter, Morgan Wright and David Collins, have assembled a group of emerging and award-winning fantasy authors alike to present you with an anthology consisting of 20 epic, dark and grimdark fantasy tales of fear, courage, love and sacrifice in worlds of death and tyranny.

Together with the stories, there will also be at least 10 striking black and white illustrations (depending on the stretch goals we hit, we’ll be adding even more!!) by talented artists like Mike Cook, Michael Mitchell Jr., Nizar, William Zablocki Jr., Gillian Annandale, and many more.

We are striving to launch a fantasy anthology that comes out with a BANG, an anthology that stands for something and means something.”

I was honored to be invited to work on this project, and as you can see on the list above, my story, “Legacy”, will be featured in the anthology!

Legacy follows the story of Birel, a man destined to bring about the destruction of his people to save his own skin. Will a promise of redemption be enough to turn him from the selfish path of damnation he’s walked on for more than a decade, or will he see his Fate through to the end?

By backing Writer Writer’s Kickstarter campaign, you will not only be supporting one of the first anthologies in support of gender equality, but you’ll be rewarded for your pledge by any number of special rewards available, including: early release copies, limited edition copies, Kickstarter exclusive bookmarks, limited edition bookmarks, book acknowledgements, and a backer’s-only forum where backers will be directly involved with the creative process, converse with the creators and contributors and be the only ones to get a, “behind-the scenes,” in the making of Dark Dominions.

That said, every little bit helps and is immensely appreciated, whether it’s $1 or $10. If you’re unable to contribute monetarily, sharing the Kickstarter page here is also an amazing contribution, and we’d be forever grateful.

Here’s a breakdown of the timeline for the funding and book release:

This has been an amazing experience so far, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll be able to see it all the way through. I want to thank you all ahead of time for your support, in whatever form you’re able to give it, and I hope you have a lovely day!

Hello, there! I'm Toni, and I've been writing and reading primarily fantasy stories most of my life. What really set me on the path to be a writer was my 6th grade English teacher, Mrs. Thomas, who told me she could see me as an author some day. I made Legends of the Wordsmiths to share my stories, and hopefully, (someday), the stories of others, too.!
