Presenting...ZNB Presents!:  

Since founding Zombies Need Brains in 2012, I've wanted to expand beyond themed anthologies and this, Year 10 of the small press, is the year I've decided to move forward with that. So I present to you all...ZNB Presents! This will be an online magazine run through Zombies Need Brains' Patreon. The first story will be published on July 1st. Subscribers simply subscribe to the Patreon at whatever tier they're comfortable with. (Two new tiers aimed specifically at magazine subscribers will be added June 1st--one at $2 and another at $4.) At the start, I intend to have two stories published per month, one on the 1st and the second on the 15th. An illustration will accompany each story. Stories will be selected through an open call for submissions, the first of which will run July 1st through July 7th. Additional open calls will be run as needed. As the subscriber base increases, I'll add additional stories per month.

The main reason I wanted to start the magazine is that I feel there's a dearth of pro-rate markets for SF and F short stories with lengths between 2500 and 7500 words. I know this because I've written and attempted to publish such stories and the choices are few and far between. I wanted to provide such a market and felt ZNB was poised to do that at this time. We'll see how it goes, I guess. I'm excited about the possibilities!

So, if you'd like to support small press and short story markets, swing on by the Zombies Need Brains Patreon HERE and become a patron! (Just a reminder, the $2 and $4 magazine tiers won't go live until June 1st.) Patreon charges cards on the first of the month, so if you sign up sometime in June, you'll be there at the beginning, when the first story is released on July 1st.

If you're a writer, you can find the submission guidelines here starting June 1st. Keep in mind that we can't have markets like this unless we get subscribers, so spread the word about the new magazine!

And just in case you were worried, we still intend to produce themed anthologies funded by a Kickstarter. I'll be announcing the FOUR new themes for this year's Kickstarter here in July. So keep an eye out for that reveal or subscribe to our newsletter above to get the new themes sent to your inbox. The Kickstarter will go live in August (if everything goes to plan) and the open call for that will begin as soon as it's funded.

I hope you join me for this new and exciting endeavor, as well as our future Kickstarter!
