Sub Op Ten

Ten Things About Submission Opportunities

1. Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine accepts submissions from first-time authors as well as established pros, and offers decent pay rates.

2. Paula Guran is looking to antho-reprint the best new paranormal stories published in 2005 and 2006, the '05 stories have a sub deadline of May 15, 2006, check out the specifics here.

3. Lone Star takes online subs for spec fic stories and poetry, details here.

4. Maniac Press currently has six online/open sub share-the-profits POD anthologies listed on their home page.

5. Midnight Showcase has a lengthy list of what specific romance and erotica sub-genre and theme novel subs they're looking for here.

6. Neometropolis accepts online submissions, seems to have a very open-minded editor, and is running a contest for their June 2006 issue.

7. For SF writers who attack the genre from a Christian POV, try OR Christian Science Fiction.

8. Submit a joke online to Reader's Digest, which pays $100 to $300 for the ones they accept.

9. Tor is looking for novel submissions in paranormal romance, romantic suspense and a specific Hannukkah-related story (thanks to Jordan for the heads up.)

10. Writers Digest runs a monthly Your Assignment contest with WD how-to books worth $100.00 for the winner, no fee, online sub okay.

Most of the above online zine links were found while raiding the market pages over at Ralan's place.

    Hmm. I wonder if Tor would like my story about the Hannukah Lobster.

    Don't tell me you've never heard the legend of the Hannukah Lobster . . .
