Funny Chicken Anthology
Submit a funky chicken work!
Story can be in any genre, but it must be light-hearted with chickens (or chicken-like creatures) integral to the plot. The more outlandish, the better. As long as you can pull it off.
Probably 5,000 words or less (I’ll read anything less than 10,000 words)
Royalty split. Probably Bundle Rabbit (or something like it) so I’m not in charge of the money. Included authors will have to set up their own account on Bundle Rabbit.
I’ll handle the cover and editing. I’ll do big picture editing but also have a proofreader.
Ebook only. No KU. No PreOrder. This means it’ll probably be a wide (on all platforms) title.
This will be a six-month run.
Anthology will unpublish NOVEMBER 29, 2020.
This is a *fun* project for me. While I hope it will make a lot of money, the reality is that it probably won’t. If you submit to this anthology, then you are also acknowledging that you are okay with that for the duration of the term (until 11/29/2020).
Proofreading matters. Please send your best work.
Please follow Shunn’s Manuscript Format. See Here.
Submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the Subject Line, please include “Chicken Submission_Your Name_Story Title”
PAYMENT: Royalty Split
EDITOR: Bokerah Brumley
PUBLISHER: JOYFUL PEACOCK PRESS (AKA: Me)
TIPS & BEST PRACTICES
- Don’t be a jerk.
- Don’t be a drama-monger!! (I probably don’t care about the latest industry gossip from anywhere.)
- Don’t be a prima donna.
- Be patient.
- EXPECT EDITS.
- Final inclusion in the anthology is MY call. It’s okay to tell me ‘no’… when it’s important, but I may so ‘no’ right back. Pick your hills to die on accordingly.
