Introducing....Small Tales!

It's a BIG DAY!!!  The Small Tales Editorial Board (of which I am a part) is very excited to introduce Small Tales!  So who or what is Small Tales?  Small Tales is a new anthology of cross-genre short stories. And we're open to submissions.

Small Tales is run by writers, for writers and readers. We are Sierra GodfreyMC Howe, Vince FerraroMike Chen, and Linda Leszczuk.

Small Tales will be published electronically, and will feature short stories up to 5000 words in length in all genres (except erotica).  No poetry, please. Our idea is to present good fiction, laid out in easy to read style, in PDF or e-reader format.

Small Tales will be published in August 2011. We're really excited about putting together a collection of good stories, and would love your submission. See our Submissions  page for info on submitting.

Have any questions about Small Tales, how was it formed, or what the process will be? Leave a comment!

 I'm currently enjoying: Deadly Lies by Cynthia Eden

Groaner of the day: The Revolutionary War was over and General Washington called the troops together to address them saying: "Men, the country must be kept safe. Accordingly, I am ordering that the active duty regulars are to stand duty from Monday through Friday. On Saturday and Sunday the National Guard and Reserves will worry about our new nations security."

And so it was, and from that day to this, the National Guard and Reserves have been known as Weekend Worriers.

ooh, I'm excited by this venture of yours. Since I got my e-readers I've been enjoying reading short stories - a break in between my regular books.

LOL at the groaner.

You've been holding out on me. This is so cool.

You might want to submit this to Ralan's so you can be listed. Lots of writers check out Ralan's listings.

Good luck!

What wonderful news. Congratulations on your new venture, it sounds like fun. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

BTW, cute groaner.

Dru - I hope we have a collection of good ones for you. Please pass the word along to anyone who might be interested in submitting.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Maria - Well, there wasn't much to talk about in the planning stages. Thanks for the FB post. I'll follow up on the Ralin site. I wasn't familiar with it. Thanks again.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Masin - Thank you. If you know anyone who might be interested in submitting, please point them our way.

All the best on the new venture. It sounds like a winner!

Sounds like a neat project that I may want to think more about after April. Right now I've got to focus on the A to Z Challenge.

Actually the groaner almost sounds like a bit of historical spin. Maybe "worriers" was the word that was originally used.
