    Pink Narcissus Press

    Hi

    Has anyone sent submissions to this new publication ? I just like to hear about other writers experiences and thoughts about new publications before submitting anything.I wrote a story I thought about sending out. It sounds interesting and the anthology themes are right in line with my type of writing.

    Check it out !

    I know I've seen this site before, but it doesn't look like it was on AW. Anyway, both the Books and Authors section is empty, no idea of who's behind it. Might be best to wait a year and see how well they're doing.

    Agreed.

    I'd also be happier if they listed pay rates and rights acquired.

    According to their FB page, their elf anthology is their first project and they've had to extend the deadline due to lack of good entries.

    Well, I got rejected but they got back to me really fast (8 days). I would consider subbing to them again.

    Their promo included putting out 15 print ARCs of the Elf Love anthology through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers programme (which I think is a good way for a small press to get exposure, although as a long-standing LTER member I am obviously biased). You can see the resulting reviews, including mine, at http://www.librarything.com/work/10584073 - I would note that the reviews range from favourable to extremely unfavourable, but that I am not aware of any public tantrums about the unfavourable ones, which is a good sign.

    On the basis of my reader experience with that anthology, they wouldn't be my first choice for something I could readily place with a market targeting my usual audience, but I wouldn't rule them out for something that didn't fit my usual markets. I was considering submitting an out of print short to the Queer Fish 2 anthology that's just closed - the pay rate was 1c/word, which would have been about $50 for the story I had in mind..
