The Book Project 3

"The Book Project concept is still very young. Eventually we will find our groove. Sadly, writers cannot be paid for their stories. This means all stories remain property of the individual writers. Writers can send their stories, be it the original or edited versions to a magazine or newspaper. All other costs for printing, design work, editing etc will be borne by the publisher/company willing to financially support the project.

We are accepting fictional stories not exceeding 1,500 words for book 3. We aim to have a compilation of at least 25 stories. I’m hoping to have all I need by June or July. We invite writers of all ages."

Deadline: June/July 2006
