We need a few more stories for Disharmony of the Spheres


The collection is almost full, but we still need a few more stories…

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.

Author royalties


In the past, we’ve paid author royalties in January, April, July, and October. Starting with 2nd quarter 2016, we’re going to be pushing these back by one month.  So, from now on, we’ll be paying royalties in February, May, August, and November.  The reason for this is so that we can pay out from Smashwords e-book sales a couple of weeks after we get them, instead of holding on to them for a couple of months.  It makes for much easier bookkeeping…
