Extended deadline: September 7, 2012

RIDE 2 will be published in print, as well as Kindle, Nook, and iBooks.

The only requirement is that a bicycle (or bicycle subculture) must feature significantly in the story.

Any genre, any length up to about 12,000 words, any setting, any time period, any kind of cycling. The more diversity—of locations, cycling cultures, story genres—the better. Don’t look at RIDE (the original) to give you an idea of what I’m looking for—all I’m interested in is the best eight or ten stories I can find, regardless of genre or style.

PAYMENT: Authors and artist receive equal splits after any I recoup any hard costs, which I’ll state clearly on the first royalty statement. This will be a flat fee for limited rights, details TBA around the same time as acceptances. The royalty split would be nice, but Amazon, B&N, et al make it too difficult. Royalties are paid via PayPal only, so author/artist must have a PayPal account.

Previously published OK. World rights must be available. Fiction only; no essays or memoir. Submit in Word, Pages, or RTF, using standard manuscript formatting.
