New Publisher needs stories. Their erotica imprint is desperate for them too!

Golden Fleece Press is a new, inventive press... well, let's hear it from them:

Golden Fleece Press is a publisher of exemplary, amazing stories across all genres and subjects, about all kinds of people. We love stories. We love the quirky, and the fantastic, and the weird. We love subtle stories, and stories about every-day people who do extraordinary things on some Tuesday in March. We love stories that show us the wonder of the human condition, and how to find the best in ourselves. That transport us to far away worlds and ancient times.

They publish novels and short story anthologies (the anthologies are mostly for the children/teen market) along with a series of nonfiction books about FANDOM!

That is why I am here (that and the smutty bit that I'll get to in a minute) ;)

FANDOM UNIVERSE is looking for STAR WARS pieces.

For Essays:
Tell us about how you met your significant other in line for the midnight release. Or how a character’s struggle to save the galaxy helped you get through your freshman year of college. Tell us how fandom has impacted your life.

For Poems and Artwork:
We understand intellectual property is a minefield, and ‘transformative works’ doesn’t help all that much. This is a for-publication work and we cannot accept fanfic or anything featuring the likeness of Trademarked characters, logos, or related indicia. For a discussion about what constitutes fair use, this is a good article to start with

Other Options:
If writing fiction is more your thing tell us a story. Maybe about a man’s slow descent into madness leaving him convinced he was Han Solo... or the like.

We are accepting essay, appropriate short fiction, and art submissions for The Fandom Universe: A Galaxy Far Far Away.

Release date for this collection is MAY THE FOURTH, so HURRY!!!

Upcoming fandoms:

Harry Potter
Star Trek
Doctor Who
And many more...

They also have an erotica imprint By Passion Shorn

We want quality, well written smut. Any genre, any subject, any pairing. We aren’t fans of censorship, but there are some ground-rules.

Check site for those rules.

♥ Story for [livejournal.com profile] originalbigbang is coming along pretty well. It's about 8,500 words so far and will definitely hit the 10k mark and beyond. I'm feeling even more confident since they have moved the deadline back a month. ♥ Not really ready to talk about the story itself yet. It still feels like a theme in need of story sometimes--which is rather odd for me. More on this later.

♠ Found a really interesting online site to get published. It's called Everyday Other Things and they are looking for contributors to do collaborations of art and story/poetry. From their website:

If you're interested in creating something for the site, send us an e-mail. In return, we'll send you an image to work with, and a three week deadline. You send us what you come up with, we'll post it on our website.

If you are a photographer/graphic designer or visual artist, send us an image and we will pass it along to one of our contributors.

I thought that sounded like fun and sent away for a picture. I don't know if this is allowed, but here is the picture I received. Pretty cool, huh? I have ~ideas~. ♥

♣ So, not sure how many of you know this, but the folks at NaNoWriMo have started a new thing this summer called "CampNano" which is basically the same premise as regular NaNo but taking place in the summer and also without a lot of the pesky structure and rules. For example. You can do it in July OR August. You can stretch the same project over both months. You could try and write 50k a month or stretch that over the two as well. Basically just WRITE dammit!

I heard about it on June 30th, I think, and so July was out for me. But, I think I'd like to sort of participate in August. I should have most of my OFBB story done. And I'm not going to commit to a huge undertaking like a novel--don't be ridiculous! That's what November is for! No, instead, I think I want to write fun stuff. Short little ditties.

That's where you come in. I want PROMPTS! Ideas! Inspiration! Anything you want to throw at me! I have found (like with the picture and the [community profile] junetide) that I really like to write for other people, for other peoples' wants and specifications (whether or not the recip reads it or not). So by all means--PROMPT AWAY!

Ahhh, but of course, one caveat. There is no guarantee that your prompt will be chosen. Also, one more caveat: there is no guarantee that you will like what I do with your prompt.


Thank you!

Firstly, there is a poll over at [livejournal.com profile] crackwhore_muse about a possible prompt marathon and opinions are much appreciated. Don't know what [livejournal.com profile] crackwhore_muse is? Just ask and I'll tell you all about it. It's pretty awesome if we can get more people involved.

Okay. That's out of the way, I thought I'd share a bunch of links for places accepting submissions, hosting writerly things and also a few awesome blogs.

This has been an interesting weekend.

I went looking for publications to submit my work, and in addition to that, also wound up becoming a "Slush Pile" reader for Vagabondage Press' "The Battered Suitcase" (!!!)

While doing all of this, I found a few places that looked interesting, but ultimately not for me. So, I thought I would share them with any of you interested.

Places looking for what you got )

I found all these places on Duotrope's Digest which is the very best search engine for fiction and poetry I've ever found. It's amazing! If you use it and love it like I do, you should consider contributing funds to keep it running and keep it ad free. It's better than Writer's Market and that thing is 50 bucks a year!

You see literary fiction, this is why we can't have nice things! )

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with any of these publications (well except The Battered Suitcase, sort of) and am not being paid, or in anyway compensated by anyone for this post.
