May 10th will soon be here, and that’s the official release date for The Butterfly and the Sea Dragon: A Yoelin Thibbony Rescue.

“The only records that delineate and authenticate Corporatia territories are on that Palmetto. We want it back.”
“What happened?” Yoelin asked.
“A records clerk bypassed security, recorded the information and then deleted it from our computers, and departed for Havelox Rest, outside our jurisdiction, where we believe she is now.”
After the words “Havelox Rest,” Yoelin heard only the pounding of her heart. A wave of dizziness passed. Why there? Why did it have to be there?
So who’s Yoelin Thibbony? That’s what she calls herself now. She endured a cruel and abusive childhood, when there was no one to rescue her. Now she performs Rescues of people or things—sometimes for hire, sometimes for free. She’s been hired to retrieve stolen archives. But to perform this Rescue, Yoelin has to return to Havelox Rest, the world of her childhood—a world that still holds dark and bleak terrors for her.

In 2006, Sam’s Dot Publishing released an anthology about the effects of global climate change on humanity called Ecotastrophe. Now that it’s been almost ten years since the release, and global climate change still seems a possible threat to humanity, Nomadic Delirium Press has decided to release Ecotastrophe II. Like the original collection, this one will be edited by J Alan Erwine.
What we’re looking for: We want science fiction stories between 3,000 and 10,000 words that look at the effects of global climate change (preferably the extreme effects) on humanity and the other creatures of Earth. We’re not looking for stories about the change, but rather the effects of the change. Although we’d love to have a lot of stories that look at the hard science of climate change, we also want stories that look at the soft sciences. It’s important that the stories focus on the people, rather than the science, but we still want the science to be plausible.
What we’re paying: We will pay $10 for first rights to any story. We will also pay two contributor copies. If possible, we will increase this payment…but we can’t guarantee that.
Poetry Submissions: We’ve decided that we will be accepting four, and only four, poems for this collection. They must meet the same criteria as story submissions, and we will pay $5 per poem for first rights, plus one contributor’s copy. Please keep in mind that we will only accept one poem per poet.
Where to send your little gems: All submissions should be sent to editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot) com. Your subject should be “Ecotastrophe Submission”.
Response times: We will respond to all submissions within two months.
Publication date: We are shooting for a mid-Summer 2016 release.
Other questions: If you have any other questions, please send them to the submission address.
Disharmony of the Spheres will be a science fiction anthology in which the main character must be battling some type of mental illness. While we will consider stories where the character is dealing with an illness like schizophrenia or multiple personality disorder, what we really want to see is characters that are battling an illness like depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, etc. This is meant to be an uplifting collection of stories, so the characters must overcome their illness to defeat whatever they’re up against. They don’t necessarily have to overcome their illness completely, but they must show that even when suffering from a mental illness, a person can still achieve great things.
Story particulars: We want stories that are 2,000 words or longer. All stories must be science fiction, and they must fit into the guidelines as outlined above.
What we’re paying: We will pay $5 per story for one time rights, and we will also pay two contributor copies. This is less than we would normally pay for an anthology, but half of all of the profits from this book will be going to the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention organization, which helps to battle teen suicide. We will consider reprints for this anthology.
Poetry Submissions: We’ve decided that we will be accepting four, and only four, poems for this collection. They must meet the same criteria as story submissions, and we will pay $5 per poem for one time rights, plus one contributor’s copy. Please keep in mind that we will only accept one poem per poet.
Where to send your stories and poems: All stories and poems should be sent to editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot) com. The subject line should include “Disharmony submission.”
Response times: We will respond to all submissions within two months.
Other questions: If you have any other questions, please feel free to send them to the address above.
Spaceports & Spidersilk is a quarterly science fiction, fantasy, and ewww gross! magazine for kids of all ages. The magazine started out with Sam’s Dot Publishing, and now it’s part of the Nomadic Delirium Press family.
The first of our individual short stories is now available. We give you “The Tulku of Titan” by Mike Morgan.
The Dalai Lama has passed away, but the monks who are to search for his new incarnation are not prepared for the fact that he has gone into space…nor are they prepared for what they find once they reach Titan.
You can read it now for just 99 cents at http://nomadicdeliriumpress.com/blog/product/tulku-of-titan-the/
The guidelines are pretty straight-forward…if you’ve had a story published with us (magazine, anthology, or collection), we’re willing to publish that story as an individual e-story. Simply let us know what story or stories you’d like us to publish and we will pair it with a basic cover and then sell it through our website, Smashwords, Kindle, and every other market that we can find for 99 cents. We’re asking for one-time publishing rights, so you’re still free to publish the story in other anthologies, zines, collections, or whatever.
There’s no advance on these stories, and we split the profits to the story 50/50, with royalties being paid quarterly. We have no illusion that we’re going to get rich off of this, and neither are you. The main reason for our wanting to do this is to promote ourselves, and to promote our writers. We’ll link to whatever publication your work has appeared in, and if you have a personal website, we’ll link to that as well (Sorry, we can’t link to Amazon sites or other book selling sites because of our contracts with Smashwords.)
If you have any questions, or if you’d like for us to publish one or more of your stories, please contact us at editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot) com.
Again-The story has to have been published by Nomadic Delirium Press for us to consider it.
