Releasing on July 3rd, 2014 to honor a day of reflection, The Fictioneer will be available for purchase on Unsolicited Press's website, Amazon, and other national retailers. A PDF version and physical copy will be available. As always, the journal is rich with characters, plot, poetry, and the like.
The Fictioneer is a trimesterly publication that seeks emerging and known authors. This issue features work from Cara Long, Emily Kiernan, Mick Bennett, Kevin Armstrong, Adam Phillips and more. The poetry will snag you by the balls and the fiction will keep you wondering what happened.
After a long six months of acquiring manuscripts, the editors at UP believe that this issue is the best thus far.
The cover art is credited to SR Stewart, our loving acquisitions editor. The brilliance behind her dark portrait is a mystery, but once we saw it, we knew that it screamed The Fictioneer.
Issues are available for $10 at Unsolicited Press (includes shipping). Electronic versions are available at Unsolicited Press or through Amazon Kindle. All major online retailers and local stores will carry the journal.
If you have a local bookstore that doesn't carry the journal, ask them to. Provide them our information (or hell, give us their information).
NOTE: We are still waiting on our book order to come in. For the time being, you can preorder the book or find it online.
Last year we did a small contest and the winners were put into our lit journal, but this year we are joining the big guys. We are offering publication to three lucky contest winners. Yeah, it's that kind of big. Three winners in any genre will be published under UP with the full marketing ploy. The winners will receive 10 copies of their book. This contest will only work if we receive enough entries. We have to have a solid set of manuscripts to choose from. Authors interested in submitting should have a complete, edited manuscript. We will do one edit cycle for each winner.
Submission deadline: 5/15/14
Winner notification: 6/1/14
Publication date: 6/25/14; 7/5/14; 7/15/14
Entry fee: $25
Fiction: 100-200 pages
We will do this quick n dirty, but professionally. Every book will go under our professional editorial and production plans before publication. We have installed a set of editors to run the contest and run the editorial process for each book. Rubie, Eric, and Esme are the lea editors.
Did we mention that should you win, you would be nominated for a Push Cart? And that you'll receive a little bit of flow? We can't guarantee the amount until we see the entry results.
Cool flyer to come.

Unsolicited Press is a beast that runs on good energy and dedicated editors and staff. Your donation helps pay these folks when books don't sell or we just break even. You see, our staff doesn't get paid until the bills and the authors are paid -- and sometimes that means we make pennies...we don't mind it, but your support really helps keep us afloat.

Listen to Literature
Most of our editors cherish our subscription with Audible. Right now they are offering free trials and a free audiobook. This is a great place to listen to Baxter's "The Art of Subtext." Think about it.
