Premiering in December 2021, SomeShortStories.com will feature a new short story each day read by one of our talented cast members on-camera as a “video audiobook” which will be featured on our Youtube channel and website (these video audiobooks will look similiar to the video below).
The site will also feature text versions of each short story, an author bio (including links to the author’s website and social media), and cover shots of the author’s books with links to purchase those books on Amazon.
We welcome authors to submit a short story for consideration to be turned into a video audiobook on our site. There is no pay, but we believe that having this video audiobook on our site will turn into a very big promotional opportunity for independent authors.
There are NO SUBMISSION FEES. (We still can't believe that people charge authors to submit works. It boggles the mind.)
Simultaneous submissions are OK by us.
We don't mind previously published stories as long as you still control the rights. If you are in doubt, check what you signed for the previous publication so that you can be sure that you still have those rights before submitting your story to us, please.
Here are our submission guidelines:
Before you submit your story... here’s what we’re looking for.
Part of our goal here is to promote Indie Authors. It is our hope that our short story video audiobooks generate sales for your books (we also hope to earn at least a little in commissions from Amazon Associates). For that reason, we only want short stories from authors who have something to sell on Amazon. Your submitted short story does not have to be on Amazon, but you do need to have something on Amazon.
If you meet all of the submission requirements and would like to have your short story considered for a video audiobook on SomeShortStories.com, please fill out the Google Form below. Thanks!
