SHORT STORIES DESCRIPTION;
Short & Fun Stories, Vol 2 Amusing Modern Short Stories is the second volume of a continuing series. Successful writers, and wannabees are cordially invited to submit an amusing story, essay, poem or article for this volume. Ideally, 1K to 5K is good, two stories are fine with a combined maximum 10,000 words, (although we can make exceptions.) It can be entirely original, or it can be an excerpt from your existing novel (so long as you are the owner. We require that you are the sole owner, therefore able to grant printing privileges.) If it is an excerpt, it should be a complete story, or interesting scene and not just a "teaser."
Kindly let us know of your intentions as soon as possible, with a deadline of August 1, 2017 for final submissions.
We do not ask for exclusive rights. You retain ownership of your work and can reprint it anywhere. All we require is the permission to print in this volume, both as a print book and as an ebook.
We will place the print book in our retail outlets, and place the ebook for sale on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. Both, will be available on this website, MercerPublications.com.
In addition to the stipend, you will receive valuable publicity. We can include a short blurb about you and your existing novel(s) with one or two links of your choice. ((Note; the Smashwords edition cannot have references to Amazon and so we will eidt those out of that edition.) Also, we will provide you with discount codes which you can use for promos and giveaways.
Optional: You may submit one picture to go with your bio and link, which will appear in the ebook in color, and will be printed in black & white. This can be a pic of you, or your book cover.
