1 July Issue of Kazka Press Live
This month, we’ve got two great stories for you, some submission stats, information on our California Cantata Anthology, and the theme for this month’s 713 Flash Contest.
1: Check out Kristy Buzbee’s contribution to last month’s 713 Flash Contest, Dunes. Where, exactly, did all that damn sand come from?
2: Check out Stephen V. Ramey’s short story The Last Liverbeast. What does a hunter do when his game is the last of the species? [Fans of @RanceDenton's contribution to Bronies will particularly enjoy this story.]
3: We’re going to be listing some submission statistics for each issue now, for the 713 Flash Contest and our regular short story feature.
In June, we received eight responses to our June 713 Flash prompt, and we selected one for publication. 12.5% acceptance rate.
Up through 9 June, we received 58 short story submissions. We selected two for publication, one for this month in a reprint Stephen V. Ramey’s The Last Liverbeast. Next month, we have a new short story from Jamie Lackey (@anyaselena) that we’re excited to share with you. 3.4% acceptance rate.
4: The California Cantata Anthology is open to submissions, but Submittable is having a bug in creating the submission form for this call. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s live.
5: The theme for this month’s 713 Flash Contest: Write us an SFF piece of flash fiction that begins with the following line: Phenelope unearthed her grandmother’s grave just before summer faded into fall.
Last, thanks to everyone who’s ordered, and who’s enjoying, Bronies. We greatly appreciate your support.
