Pixel Hall Press Announces PHP Shorts & Invites Queries from Short Story Authors
I received an email from Pixel Hall Press this week announcing some great news for authors of short stories. Here is this skinny: Pixel Hall Press is pleased to announce that later this year, in addition to its catalog of print and eBook novels, it will be launching PHP Shorts, a series of stand-alone short stories and novellas that will be published as eBooks. Some PHP Shorts may also be collected into print anthologies.
Pixel Hall Press Welcomes Queries from Authors of Short Fiction
PHP is looking for highly polished, well crafted stories. More than genre, PHP editors consider how compelling the story is, how memorable the characters are, and how the narrative develops while avoiding clichés.
As a small boutique publishing house, PHP can't offer an advance at this time. But they do offer authors a higher percentage of the profits than is traditional, plus other advantages, including, if the author wishes, creative involvement in publishing decisions.
Before submitting a story to Pixel Hall Press, send a query email to Info@PixelHallPress(dot)com. Wow the editors with a summary or synopsis, then tell them a bit about yourself. They will respond to all queries, but please be patient, since it may take a few weeks. Also, please understand that, as a small boutique publishing house, they cannot say "yes!" to every query, regardless of how good it is.
Cynthia suggested that any submissions should include my name in your query (you can copy and paste: I ♥ Bookie Nookie from I ♥ Bookie Nookie Reviews) - this may help move you out of the "slush" pile a little faster :-)
