    Just a couple questions!

    Hi Brian! I'm very excited to submit something, but I wanted to know a couple other things.

    What is your policy on simultaneous submissions? Also, would you accept something that we've previous published ourselves on Amazon?

    Thank you!

    It probably goes without saying, but please only submit your very best work. Be sure to have at least one person proofread your work for you. Two or more proofreaders would be smart. Typos, misspellings, and formatting mistakes are a quick and easy way to get rejected, unfortunately.

    Thanks and good luck!

    Best wishes,

    Some questions I've been asked that I thought might be helpful here:

    Q: Are the eBook submissions also being considered for the hardcover line?

    A: Anything we read is being considered for print as well, but we have a very limited number of hardcover slots and our schedule is full through the beginning of 2014 right now, so it's really a matter of the right project at the right time.

    Q: For fiction collections, do we send you the finished lineup as we see it, or a pool of short stories for you to select from?

    A: For a collection, please submit the finished lineup as you see it in one manuscript file. Include the TOC and any previous publication credits for the story at the beginning.

    Q: Will you still be re-opening the magazine to submissions?

    A: We'll be opening the magazine to submissions next month. This is basically our trial run for the submission management software to make sure it works the way we hope!

    Q: When will you be closing the eBook line to submissions?

    A: Given the infinitely expandable nature of the eBook line, we expect to be open to submissions for as long as we're finding great books to publish. We might take some months off here or there to give our readers a break, but take your time and get happy with the work. No need to rush. This isn't a limited time offer.

    Q: How long will the magazine be open to submissions when you reopen in December?

    For the magazine, we'll be looking to buy about 20 stories and we'll remain open until we find them. Then we'll probably be closed for another year. I don't like having stories on file for as long as we did this last time. We bought WAY too many before we closed to submissions.
