Call for Submissions
Call for Submissions (55 Words Stories Challenge 2018 – Day 43)
The ad was straightforward: a chance to be a part of a new short stories anthology.
Bill turned on his laptop, surfed to the site, filled out the corresponding form.
The screen flickered, music dripped, violet eyes glimmered and the book’s title came to life.
“Hypnotized Boys Obey,” he muttered, before hitting the “Submit” button.
How this story came to be
As you know, I’ve published a few e-books already, including a couple of volumes of shorties such as this one. I want to publish more, and I will definitely do it but, at the same time, I’m also looking for other venues to publish and share my creations. I have a lot more ideas waiting for their chance to shine and with strength, perseverance, and your support, perhaps I’ll be able to make them come to fruition in due time.
This piece came to mind as I was looking at a web page with a list of sites looking for submissions. It’s simple but I think it’s hot, and violet eyes are sexy… there, I’ve said it. I hope you enjoyed it.
Seeing I want this year’s challenge to be more interactive than ever, I would love to hear your suggestions for future pieces, themes to explore, etc. Anything goes as long as the basic principles of the challenge are respected. It can be silly, it can be dark, it can be anything. If you want to play along, leave a comment below with your idea. I’ll make note of each and every one, try to incorporate as many as possible in the future, and give you full credit for the inspiration. Until tomorrow.
