Should your story be selected for publication, I’m offering payment of $0.03 per word, via PayPal (or check, it’s up to you), for the story. As I’m just starting this, we expect future offers to be competitive.

After four (4) months you may request a withdrawal of the story from the site at any time.
The withdrawal request must come from the originating email with the publication code or an alternate email with the publication code.
The publication code is a must for withdrawing submissions.
