Interested in Selling an Original Story Professionally?

Interested in getting a first professional sale (or snagging another)? Do you love animals--specifically cats and dogs? I have a friend seeking submissions for "an anthology of speculative stories about companion or service animals" with the profits going to an animal shelter. Newbies are more than welcome to submit, and I know I have quite a few very talented writers on my f-list so...

You can find all the details here. Submissions are open from May 1 to August 31, 2011, and they're looking for stories between 1,000 and 4,000 words.

(Knowing my friend btw, I know she likes well-crafted stories in at least a clean prose, even if not necessarily literary, style. So I suggest you leave the book-saidisms, the adverb abuse, head-hopping, excess italics and bold, initial caps and other writing gremlins behind if you want a shot...)

*waves* I know I've been an awful friend lately, and I just haven't had the time to check my live journal for ages. So feel free to stop in this post and let me know how you've been!
