Just for your information, the grand prize has been announced.  The best overall piece in the whole publication will receive $200.

Hopefully that's enough to get some more of you writing. Smiley
Oh boy. I literally need that much more to pay for my rent. Dang you and your tantalizing rewards. Smiley

If I send in an extremely well written cover letter that touches on the issues blighting furry writers, and do it in a perky, poetic, and post-modernist manner (whatever that would be), do I still get a shot at the grand prize? Grin

Dude, you make me laugh. Cheesy

Seriously, though, send in a piece.  Then you'll be eligible Wink

Though depending on the quality and quirkiness of the letter, I might actually consider publishing it... But it'd have to be really, really good. XD

I already sent a story to New Fables, but I haven't heard back from them and even if it was accepted, it wouldn't be published until next summer anyway. Am I still eligible to send it to you?

Complicated question.  You can, and if they accept it, just go ahead and e-mail me saying that you withdraw it from consideration.  I generally won't accept simultaneous submissions, but starting off I'm a bit more lenient (especially if you ask).

You'll also need to check to see if they accept simultaneous submissions.  If not, I'd suggest you just wait until they accept or reject the piece.  Otherwise, it could hurt your chances of being published there in the future.

$200, that is rent money right there!

This might turn out to be a regular thing submission wise.

Sorry about that! I've been so bogged down with work, everything else has sorta been put on pause. I'll send it off to you by the end of the week.

Hehe, sounds good! And don't worry if you don't get it in until the 30th.  It'll still get the same kind of consideration Smiley

Hello fellow Alex,

Not to hjack the thread, but it caught my eye and I thought I'd butt in. Six years ago I was in the same position you were, casting out wide nets to acquire fiction for what would become FANG Vol. 1, and the start of my involvement in furry publishing. I'm delighted you're starting your own publication!

Do you have a distribution plan? Do you have experience in layout and typesetting? Will you be issuing release contracts to the authors or operating on a gentleman's agreement?

Actually, there's a fair few other aspects of book publishing where I could offer advice to help you avoid some of the pitfalls that made my own publication enterprises rather a rocky road. If you'd like a touchstone to help you along, please feel free to contact me at alexfvance@gmail.com.

All you guys, I appreciate the submissions!

Alex, I'm currently at Anthrocon, so it may be a day or two before I send you an email.  However, I would love to get some insights from you about what helped you the most.  I like to take risks, but it's good to know what risks I can avoid Smiley

Well, you'll get at least one more. I've just been brushing it up a bit, now that I've gotten some free time. Sorry for the delay.
