The Small Tales Editorial Board is super excited today to announce the kick off of our project. So what is the project, exactly? Small Tales is a new anthology of cross-genre short stories. And we're open to submissions.

Small Tales is run by writers, for writers. We are Sierra Godfrey (http://sierragodfrey.blogspot.com/), Linda Leszczuk (http://lindaleszczuk.blogspot.com%20%20/), MC Howe (http://www.pensivesarcasm.blogspot.com/), Vince Ferraro (http://vinceferraro.blogspot.com/), and Mike Chen (http://mc-novel-blog.blogspot.com/).

Small Tales will be published electronically, and will feature short stories up to 5000 words in length (excepting erotica and poetry). The idea is to present good fiction, laid out in easy to read style, in PDF or e-reader format.

Small Tales will be published in August 2011. We're really excited about putting together a collection of good fiction, and would love your submission. See our Submissions page (http://smalltalesproject.blogspot.com/p/submit.html) for info on submitting.

Have any questions about Small Tales, how was it formed, or what the process will be? Leave a comment!

Exciting news, MC!

I'm thinking you might get more exposure for this in one of the markets forums. Seeing as we'd prefer if peeps don't start too many threads for the same thing, if you can provide me a bit more detail regarding pay (yay or nay) we can port this thread to the best market forum for it. We'll leave a thread redirect here so nobody browsing the short fiction forum misses out.

Thanks Izz. At this time we are making Short Tales a free publication, so we aren't paying for stories. However we are offering a $25 Amazon gift card for the best story.

I didn't mean to triple post (well, I suppose I did) but I also put this announcement in the announcement and blogging forums. Sorry.

Thanks for asking Damian. For clarification purposes, I assume you mean how soon before you get a yes or no on submission. Honestly, I can't answer that. This is the first day of the launch of a new publication. We expect a tremendous response, so the best I can tell you is the sooner you submit, the sooner you will hear from us.

Write well!

I've ported you to the Non-Paying Markets forum, and edited your thread title to show what you're offering to best story.

Hope that's okay!

Thanks. Submissions are pouring in. Could you change the thread title so that it reflects that? Perhaps, Small Tales now accepting submissions, or words to that effect.

I got one of the super's to change it for you, MC, seeing as we're now out of my area.

Does that look okay?
