From Ruthie’s Club
I am pleased to announce that Ruthie’s Club, now in its fourth year of publishing original and illustrated erotic fiction, will move into its next developmental stage on November 1, 2004. From that date, we will pay a publication fee to writers on the following scale:
Flash – $10.00
Our Flashers are stories of 300 words or less that fulfill the requirements for plot, character development, and resolution. We normally group five flashers from different authors to fill a feature slot in our Story Schedule.
Story Groups – $45.00
Stories shorter than 3,000 words are grouped as a duo, trio, or even a quartet, depending on length. For example, three short stories of about 1,200 words each can fill one feature slot.
Standalone Short – $45.00
Stories long enough to fill a feature slot in our schedule are called standalones. These stories are typically 3,500 to 7,000 words.
Two Installment Stories – $60.00
Stories 7,000- 14,000 words are broken into two parts. Each part must be long enough to fill a feature slot (3,500- 7,000 words.) These installments will run in separate weeks.
Longer Installment Stories – $75.00-$350.00
These stories are more than 14,000 words.
Writers wishing to submit stories for possible publication in any of the above formats are invited to contact me at [email protected] or contact our Fiction Editor, Neil Anthony, at [email protected].
Ruthie’s Club offers to its participating writers a range of services apart from payment. We have first class editors, we offer archives for authors, we illustrate all new stories through our own artists, and we publish on an attractive, appealing, award-winning website.
