Taking Submissions: Tales From the Fluffy Bunny

Deadline: September 30th, 2017
Payment: $5.00 flat rate plus equal share of 50% of the anthology’s royalties.

Welcome to the Fluffy Bunny

The Fluffy Bunny? You say?

What kind of name is that for an adventurer’s bar?

Well, it’s not only the name of the bar it’s also the name of that blade you see hanging over the bar. The blade I used to slay
the ancient dragon Thorenoak.

All adventurers are welcome here. But I have found the ones who are truly the bravest are not those who give themselves or
their weapons grandiose names. They are the ones who are reluctant to tell their stories. However, the best stories come
from the ones who have silly nicknames – like The Fluffy Bunny.

So pull up a chair and tell us how your weapon earned its name. First drink is on the house. And depending on the quality of
the tale another may follow as well.

What we are looking for are Fantasy stories that feature your main character telling a tale about how they or their weapon
earned their name. Humor is a plus.

All stories need to start with: “This is my tale…”

Please note the editor will be adding a frame to each story to maintain the illusion the story is taking place in The Fluffy
Bunny and is being told to the bartender/patrons therein. You do not need to add any elements/breaks in the story – just tell
the story about your hero and/or their weapon’s silly nickname.

Break the story-writing rules if you want. If you use a tried and true plotline, twist it in an original and interesting way.
Original stories are preferred. Query for reprints.

ALL writers are encouraged to submit. Doesn’t matter if you’re a pro with years of credits, a beginner just starting out, or a
teenager – please feel free to send the editor a story. In your cover email, please tell the editor a bit about yourself and a quick
one-line synopsis of the story. Include genre. If experimental, please explain the type or how so the editor doesn’t edit out the
form or reject it out of hand. Thank you.

In the Subject line please put Submission:  Fluffy Bunny: Title of your story: Your name. Attach as an .rft file, please send to:
[email protected]

Ongoing Submissions: Storyteller

Payment: $100 advance on a 20% royalty on individual issue sales

Storyteller is looking for a modern evolution of literary fiction. We want stories that hook right from the first sentence and don’t let go until the impactful climax a few thousand words later. Stories should be titled to attract a reader’s interest; not to describe the story. The hook should pull the reader straight into the action. The climax should have emotional relevance. We want goose-bump triggering impact.

Upon acceptance, contributors are required to collaborate with editors and other contributors to revise their submission, as well as promote the issue to which their work is accepted.

  • Compensation: $100 advance on a 20% royalty on individual issue sales.
  • Rights: One month exclusivity & first publishing rights. Previously published work not accepted.
  • Circulation: Thousands of readers on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and ReadStoryteller.com.
  • Average reading time: Less than thirty days. Stories selected by a team of curators.
  • Word count: 5,000 to 7,500 words considered for fiction. No exceptions.
  • Formatting: Curators prefer proper manuscript style. USA spelling. No manual returns.
  • Editing: Our editors use Google Docs for collaborative editing.
  • Poetry not accepted.
