How would you like to join us for a trip to the dark side of desert fauna? We're talking seriously deranged tumbleweeds. We're looking for stories up to 5000 words long that deal with tumbleweeds - feral, vicious, deadly, twisted, radioactive - we don't care what, as long as those weeds are BAD, and we mean wicked BAD.
Write up that weird west tale you've always wanted to tell. Submit it to our anthology. We want everything from science fiction to fantasy to horror to everything in between.
Deadline for submission: Dec. 31, 2010
Send your stories, .doc format, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your contact information and a short blurb about your story.
Submit your manuscript using standard format (word docs only, please!). We aren't too picky, as long as we can open the file and read your story, we're happy. We want stories that have been polished, spell-checked, and edited by at least the author. Proof-read before submitting, please!
We are not interested in profanity of any kind, extreme violence, or steamy sex scenes. Keep it PG-13 and you should be good. Please, no profanity. Made-up cuss words are fine.
Story length can be 1 word up to 5,000 words. Flash fiction and poetry will be considered as long as it fits the theme.
If accepted for publication, the author will receive one contributor's copy and the right to purchase as many copies as desired at the cost of printing. If you want to sell it, you can keep your profits from the sales. This is a print-only anthology.
There is a possibility of creating an ebook version, if we can work out how to be fair with the royalties. If your story is accepted, we will be in touch.
This anthology will be published through Cyberwizard Productions, http://cyberwizardproductions.com
