Taking Submissions: Beware The Bugs

Deadline: February 11th 2022
Payment: $.01 per word advanced against royalties
Theme: Giant bugs!
Note: Reprints Welcome

Beware the Bugs is open to stories about giant bugs (or, perhaps, normal sized bugs and tiny humans). Fantasy or science fiction are welcome.

Word Balloon Books sells print editions at comic cons, Ren Fairs, and book festivals. We’ve noticed that most books at these event target adult readers,  so in 2022 we’re launching a line of anthologies appropriate for readers 10 and up. We’re open to challenging themes and subject matter, but language, graphic violence, and sexual content should be rated G. Child or teen protagonists preferred.
