With markets for short stories decreasing, a new paid market must be welcome news to short story writers. Alfie Dog Limited is creating a paid digital download service for short stories. The site will carry formats suitable for Kindle, Kobu, Sony E-reader, i-pad and other Apple products as well as a printable version to read on computer or paper, offering a unique market to bring short story writers and readers together.
All submissions will be read. Stories should be a consistently high standard, ‘worth the buyer reading’ and written in English. You can find information about submissions at Alfie Dog Limited.
This is a paid market: 39p – 59p will be charged per download, depending on story length, and 99p for a collection of 5-10 stories. Half of this (after the transaction cost) will go to the author. Payment for the downloads will be through Paypal and allows a single download to take place.
Submissions are now open for a launch date of Wednesday 16th May 2012.
