Today we passed a milestone for the call; submission of stories to date cumulatively totals more than one million words. The review team has their work cut out for them, but reading so many great stories is a pleasure in and of itself.
Feel free to stress-test our prescription eyewear with more submissions, we’re committed to finding the stories which perfectly fit the concept.
The target word count for this first volume is 75,000.
Back to my reading!
In response to several questions; we won’t be announcing selected stories until the submission deadline of September 30th has passed. The only exception will be those stories we decide early do not fit the concept, for whatever reason, and in such cases we will notify the author it is no longer under review.
So, if we haven’t contacted you, your story is still under consideration.
To those who haven’t submitted a story as yet, the process will remain open through the submission deadline, plenty of time to put the final polish on something truly bubble off-plumb!
We kicked off our call for submissions 7/21/2018 and apparently the concept struck a chord. We’re seeing a good response and look forward to reading them all.
For authors who have already submitted a story, thank you and we’ll contact if there are any issues or suggestions.
The deadline for submissions remains September 30, 2018. Don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any questions or concerns. Periodically, we’ll publish Q&A for everyone’s benefit in this space.
Dust off the odd, and send it in!
We’ve selected a cover for the Bubble Off Plumb collection of short stories. The call for submissions will open next week. Dust off any and all of the strange or odd stories in your portfolio, they may have found a home.
