Donald John Trump is an American businessman, television personality, and the 45th President of the United States. His Twitter account has been making news on a daily basis since his election.
An important note - This anthology will contain many pieces of fiction! We want to be clear about this! There are no hidden truths in this book...we think...
Why make a Donald Trump anthology?
Dark Helix Press wants to create a time capsule of speculative fiction stories written right now about what writers believe the future will be like for America and the world with a President who is relatively unpredictable. His actions ripple throughout the planet and the galaxy in some of the stories submitted.
The future is full of uncertainty and having a person like him in power makes things even more exciting. As a character, he is fascinating, ruthless and lives boldly. Of course, in this anthology we assume he will be President for a long time, but we don't make any promises about what will happen to him by time of publication!
What has been done so far?
The call to submissions opened March 2017 and the deadline is July 30, 2017, midnight EST. Dark Helix Press has been accepting poetry, flash fiction and short stories. While we aim to publish 20 pieces, we may publish more if the stories are too irresistibleto turn down!
Writers from all over the globe have been sending in contributions on a daily basis to this anthology. We do not care if the writers have been published or not as long as the story is great - everyone gets a fair chance! Our editors are doing their best to create a diverse collection of stories, with worlds ranging from medieval to sci-fi to fantasy.
Sample Writing Pieces

Dark Helix Press Background
Dark Helix Press is an Indie publisher of Multicultural Fantasy, Science Fiction and Raw Non-Fiction established in 2014. We are based in one of the most diverse cities in the world – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Our interest lies in risky, innovative fiction for adults considered too edgy for other publishers and raw, truthful non-fiction told in no-nonsense styles. We also produce children and YA books in hopes that newer generations will gain confidence and be proud of their multilingual heritages.
What The Money Will Be Used For
This campaign is to raise awareness that this book exists and to help offset some costs for editing and the marketing black hole. All writers are paid up front for their work with revenue from other books.
We aim to produce a great anthology for the enjoyment of our readers and create for the sake of making art!

Risks and challenges
This is Dark Helix Press' third Kickstarter and first anthology, so we are very excited about this project! Our editors have worked on other anthologies before, however, there could be delays due to coordinating the editing process with the writers.
There is a real risk that we may be forced to rename the book and other material in the book if a certain someone sends us expensive letters...this would affect the storytelling slightly if we have to do such edits.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
