Call for Submissions: "Paramourtal 2" (paranormal romance short stories)

Cliffhanger Books is looking for new, previously unpublished short stories (approx. 6500-8000 words) for Paramourtal 2, the second volume of our award-nominated paranormal romance series. We are eager to read truly original fiction with unique (i.e. think beyond vampires and werewolves, though they are welcome, as well), well-defined, emotionally complex characters.

Give us an innovative take on an established paranormal character type. Approach your love story from a fresh angle or motivation. Hook us in with an imaginative and perplexing plot that will keep readers engaged until the very end.

Submissions are open to all U.S. and international writers age 18 and over. Stories must be submitted in English. While paranormal romance authors are generally female, we want story submissions from talented male writers as well.

Interested writers are invited to review our submission guidelines at http://www.cliffhangerbooks.com

Deadline for submissions is midnight, October 31, 2011 (Halloween!).

Good luck!

As per the posting guidelines, could you please specify payment type/rate?

This from their website -

Each author included in Paramourtal 2 will receive a choice of either a $10 one-time payment or 2% royalties (based on profits) for three years. Each author will also receive a printed and a digital (PDF) copy of the book. Additional copies of the book will be available at a substantial discount.

Yes, it is on their website but the poster should put it in the subject post, please.

This is just barely above the non-paying level. Is Cliffhanger worth the publishing kudos, since that is basically what they're offering?

No complaints about pay rates

You are correct. I should have. My mistake.

I'd do it just for the publishing cred. The blog has some helpful writing tips, too:)

Will they be doing this again next year? Do they do a lot of anthologies?
