竞赛简介

I'm looking for authors looking to expand their readership. I'm looking for short stories from various genres and authors who can commit to writing short stories on a weekly basis. Each short story that is accepted will pay $20. (No erotica please, I'm not ready to deal with the warnings and so on that come with such adult content). For the individuals chosen, please include an about the author clip which is to be published on my website. Should you publish a novel at some time in the future, I am more than willing to post it to the website as well to increase your sales.

Word count between 2,500 and 15,000. You retain publishing rights, submissions are your consent for me to publish your work on my site should I accept it. You must have full right to all work submitted.

A story of my own is posted below, please look at it in reference to my suggestions. (While I'm still learning, I've been training with the best selling author Carolyn McCray for a while and she's helped me greatly improve my work.)

Thanks for your submissions.

As a good rule of thumb, as many submissions have to little dialogue: three paragraphs non-dialogue followed by 1 to 4 spoken segments.

*I'm looking for fantasy, romance, mystery, and science fiction for the most part but any submissions are accepted and have the potential to start a long term publishing relationship.
**Please edit your work
***Each submission should include a line with the genre type

    Hey, Cool, I won!...(writer walks urgently up to the stage, grabs his award, and begins a very awkward speech, much to the dismay of the crowd)…To Mrs Nelson my 10th grade English teacher, and Mrs Sasser who almost flunked me in 12th grade, you two can suck it!...That said, thank you Mrs Henry (4th grade) for being the only teacher to ever give me an “A” in English…and thank you Morgan Freeman for your role as “Easy Reader” in the Electric Company; it helped me learn the English language as a kid. (Music begins to play, people rush to pull the writer off the stage)…oh, and thank you Contest Holder for having a sense of humor…because without that, my story just wouldn’t have made sense!...(writer waves award around as he is pushed off stage).

      If you would like to email your story to me I'll still look at it and if I like it I might accept your work and potentially a publishing continuation.

    #40 please read it full.

    I kept the word limit in mind. Did't knew we could send a shorter intro to the short story too.
    Hope it engages and entertains you. Do rate it and feedback please. :)

    Posted my second story, #22. I personally think it's better than my first entry, though I'm not sure if it's my love for Science Fiction or not. Stylistically experimental, so enjoy!

      You retain rights, if I accept your work then your submissions are your permission for me to publish your work on my site. As for showing the website to you, it's still in development, I can show you what I have but it's not much at this point. It's fairly straight forward though and uncluttered.

      I also don't intend on posting stories with a lot of swearing, anger, or sexual content.

      between 2,500 and 15,000, I'm not too picky. If it's a good story that's all that really matters.

      Sure, I personally am interested in these subjects and I'm sure there are thousands of other readers for such genres as well.

    Are you looking for adult, young adult, children's...? And I see you over there on Amazon, Ms. Baker. I like Nightshade's cover.

      Adult and young adult but avoid overly graphic things for now. And thanks, I'm still needing to bump up the editing on that book but it's cool to have something out there. I also have a short story series I'm looking to publish soon. I'll post them for free on my website and sell additional copies on amazon.

      as in sexual, I'm actually okay with violent graphic things, I don't see these getting as much potential back lash.
