first of all, if all you’re doing is compiling a collection of other people’s stories, then you’re not ‘writing’ a book, are you?… what you’d be doing is called ‘editing’ one… unless you meant you’ll be rewriting them all significantly…

regardless, i’d have to ditto el’s comments/question…

and do you intend to self-publish this book?… or will you try to snag a paying publisher for it?… in either case, you may need to pay the contributors up front, since there’s no guarantee it will A. ever be published, or B. make any money… and the odds are heavily against both…
