Call for Submissions: Fractured Fairy Tales (Dancing Fools Press)

Post date: 27 May 2011
What we're looking for: original fractured fairy tales (e.g. about a princess who can rescue herself, a dragon that's not the bad guy, or a prince who would much rather stay home and read rather than seek his fortune; think along the lines of Jay Williams' "Petronella"). Stories should be between 15,000 and 20,000 words, should fall under the romance category (as opposed to erotica), and must stand alone. Happy endings are preferred, although hopeful endings will be considered.

We're also looking for a cover on the fractured fairy tale theme.

Please take a look at the information on the website that goes into more detail about what we're trying to do and what we will and won't publish, including genres.

If this is something that you want to be a part of (and we think it's going to be a lot of fun), here are some ground rules:

* No advance.
* Authors will split the author royalties evenly between them (prorated by final word count) and receive one print and two ebook contributor copies.
* All editing will be done via email and IM.
* Royalty payments will be made electronically via PayPal in US dollars, unless other arrangements need to be made.
* Finished story submission deadline: open until filled.

If you have any questions, or would like more information (about our contracts or anything else), please feel free to email us.


1. In the body of your submission email, please include the following information:

* Author information (name, email, web site)
* Pseudonym?
* Have you been previously published (any format)?
* Are you eighteen years of age or older?
* Title
