Fictitious Force finally up and closed, not to anyone's surprise. Pfft.
Ralan's has a new magazine listed called Emerald Tales, and the theme for their first issue is "Follow the Butterflies." I was trying to come up with an idea for that last night when I realized I already have a story that fits the theme perfectly. It's a SF story called "Cult of the Butterfly." Unfortunately, it's also one of the first stories I wrote when I started writing short and it kind of sucks. I started rewriting it last year but didn't get too far, but now I have a reason to keep going. For one thing, the issue deadline is July 1!
Oooooh! A new market!
Yeah, it looks interesting and the pay's not bad. And they're open to pretty much any genre!
I'm limiting myself to one short/flash at a time, or I will never finish this novel. Of course, I could put butterfly wings on my fairy....
Ack! Must... stop...
Sounds interesting. I might have to look into it.
I like themed issues and anthologies. It's always fun to try and think up a twist on the theme.
$40 a story - not bad indeed. Good luck with that.
Yeah, for a 4,000 word or less story it's not bad. Above 4k and it starts looking less interesting, but still a nice little sum.
