Needs: Journey Books is seeking great authors who are willing to work at building a name for themselves while building a reputation for Journey Books. We'll work hard for you, but as a new and relatively small press we need authors who are willing to help sell their work. Currently, we a seeking short works for Amazing Journeys Magazine. The first issue is due for release this fall. Those authors whose work generates the most interest from readers may be given an opportunity to participate in one of our upcoming anthologies. It is our hope to develop a "stable" of authors for our publishing house by using the magazine, and later the anthologies, as a test vehicle for writers. Those who pass may find themselves with a book deal a few years down the road. Our initial payments will be very small, but hopefully as our presence grows and our authors names become know so will the money.
Length: For books, send a brief synopsis and the first three chapters.
For Amazing Journeys Magazine and our anthologies we are looking for works with lengths from 3000-20,000 words but prefer the 5k-8k range.
Payment: For Amazing Journeys Magazine: As stated above, we're just getting started. Our payment is terrible, but we hope it will get better.

An additional $10.00 will be paid to each author for each $1000.00 in subscription revenue the magazine brings in for the edition in which the work appears.
Works accepted for book and anthology publication will receive a contract stating rights, advances and /or royalty payments on an individual basis.
