We are opening a new submission contest. This contest is going to be set up a little different from normal submissions. Below is a list of fairy tales. We are looking for stories based off of these particular fairy tales. We will only except ONE story per fairy tale, so once a fairy tale has been taken, submissions for that one will be closed. WE ARE LOOKING FOR NOVELLA/NOVEL LENGTH WORK. Each story will be published individually as ebook and print.
MINIMUM WORD COUNT OF 15,000.
Since we are asking for very specific stories, we will accept queries for both finished and incomplete work. HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A DETAILED OUTLINE AND SAMPLE CHAPTERS.
We will keep our website and Facebook page updated with the fairy tales that are taken.

How does this work?
Books will be published as epub and print on demand. Whether the book is offered in paperback or hardcover depends on the type of book. Some novels may be released in both.
Payment: Authors will receive a percentage of all royalties. AUTHORS DO NOT PAY FOR PUBLICATION. WE PAY FOR ALL PRODUCTION COSTS OF YOUR NOVEL/NOVELLA! This includes, cover art, and editing.
