Taking Submissions: In a Cat’s Eye

August 30, 2016

Deadline: August 30, 2016
Payment: 2¢ per word, contributor’s copy, potential royalties

Pole to Pole Publishing is seeking original science fiction, fantasy and horror stories of 3,000-5,000 words (firm) to be published in the In a Cat’s Eye anthology, slated for publication October 2016.

“In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.” ~ English Proverb

Is it true that all things belong to cats, or do they just think so?
Will cats one day rule the world, or one day get their comeuppance?
Either way, we want to know about it.

Stories should be dark, and include a cat—which should be integral to the story.

Edition and Rights: In a Cat’s Eye will be published in electronic and trade paperback in English. We are asking for exclusive, worldwide rights to your work for both electronic and print for six months.

Payment: Payment is 2¢ per word for new fiction, paid at publication, via PayPal only. If you do not have a PayPal account, please do not submit your work.

Bonus Royalties Multiplier: If the anthology earns out, that is, recoups all up-front costs to produce, authors will receive a royalty-share payment based on word-length of their story, at six-months from date of publication.

Authors will receive one copy of both the electronic and trade paperback versions of the anthology.

Submission Procedures:

Submit stories through the Pole to Pole Publishing Submission Manager only:    Submission Manager

In your cover letter, tell us your favorite cat quote and cat story.

All stories should be in standard manuscript form and in rich text format (.rtf) only.

In a Cat’s Eye is not accepting poetry. Please do not send poems.
Poetry will be deleted without a response.

No reprints.

We do accept simultaneous submissions, but not multiple submissions. Please send your best work. Only one story from each author will be considered.

If you’re not sure if your story is suitable, don’t query; please just go ahead and submit it and let our editors decide.

Deadline: August 30, 2016 (or until filled).

As always, if you want a good idea of what we’re looking for, check out our first anthology, Hides the Dark Tower.
