Publishing for the People!
Red Rabbit Publishing is seeking submissions for Red Rabbit Presents, a new anthology of sci-fi short stories. I’m looking for action-filled stories told well. That simple.
NOTE: Please Like Red Rabbit’s Facebook group for just-in-time information.
THEME: The first issue will release around mid-2018 and the theme will be military sci-fi. Professional soldiers, command structure, mechs beating down aliens, things like that. Explosions and heroes. Think of Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers as an example of military sci-fi.
PAY & LENGTH: Rate is $.03 cents a word, original content (no reprints) only. A minimum of 3,000 words and up to 6,000. Story length can go beyond (up to 8,000), but pay will only be to 6,000. ($90.00 to $180.00). Payment will be at time of publication through PayPal. If print books are created, all contributing authors will receive a copy.
RIGHTS: First Worldwide print (unpublished) and electronic English Language rights. Exclusivity for 180 days from date of release. Red Rabbit retains non-exclusive reprint and e-book rights afterward.
DEADLINE: Story deadline for submission is February 28, 2018. Story selection will be made by April 1, 2018. All entrants will be notified around that time or shortly thereafter.
EDITING: A professional editor will work with all authors to ensure a quality story is published. If you prefer, you can secure professional editing at your own expense. (BYOE – Bring Your Own Editor)
BOOK COVERS & PRODUCTION: Red Rabbit Publishing will handle all aspects of design, formatting, and story placement.
SIMULTANEOUS SUBMISSIONS: That’s fine, as long as I’m notified (by email) if your submission is accepted elsewhere.
SUBMISSION: Send an email to RRPsubmissions (at) akmeek.com with story attached as a Word document. Please use “Mid-2018 Submission” for email subject. Include the following in the email: story name, word count, author name, along with a blurb of any other information you think I’d like to know. Examples are: awards, social reach, newsletter subscriber count, etc. I’ll leave it up to what you feel is important.
QUESTIONS: Please check out Red Rabbit’s Facebook group (link above). If you prefer, send an email to the submissions email address (above). Please use “question” in the subject line.
