Call for Submissions for Mermaid Tales: An Anthology (Lucky Thirteen Presents Press | paying market)

Post date: 11 June 2012
Lucky Thirteen Presents will at times be looking for submissions from artists and writers.


Currently Lucky Thirteen is accepting submissions from fantasy writers for an anthology of short stories prominently featuring mermaids as the subject matter. All rights of the story remain with the author to continue to sell for other projects as well. Lucky Thirteen does not seek ownership of your stories, only the the right to publish them in this singular volume. The final product will compiled in large paperback format with a full color cover and pages printed in black and white — all beautifully illustrated. The product will be made available for purchase and printed through Lulu.com and potentially Amazon. I cannot afford to purchase a copy for each contributor, however the book will be available for a window of time at cost (which should be around $6 or $7) until such time as the release date is chosen. Payment for inclusion in the Mermaid Tales anthology will be as follows:

SHORT STORIES: Approved stories between 3,000 and 10,000 words will receive a one time payment of $10. Over 10,ooo words, but no longer than 20,000 words will receive a payment of $20. Please only send a brief synopsis of your proposed story at first and we will take it from there.

POETRY – There will be consideration for poems, however no payment can be offered.

ART – may be submitted, but will not likely be accepted, as illustrations for this project will be done by illustrator, David Ayala.

Payment via Paypal ONLY and due upon completion of approval of completed story and signed contract by the author is received.

No fan fiction will be considered. Please no stories about “the Little Mermaid”. No R-rated content. Submissions in English only. Only one submission at a time please, as each author will be allowed only one entry into the anthology. Editor reserves the right to reject any submission for any reason.

Deadline for submissions is currently until project is full.
