1. Please send in complete material. Do not send in half complete work or proposals that are not finished.
2.Stories must be between 1-24 pages. Though some exceptions maybe made depending on circumstances. Pin-ups are accepted but stories are HIGHLY encouraged and have a better chance of being accepted.
3. Both COLOR and black and white material are accepted.
4. Image size must be equal to 6.25” x 9.5”.
5. Send as PSD, TIFF or PDF. Minimum 300 dpi. We will ask higher resolution if we accept your submission.
6. You allow ANTARCTIC PRESS and its employees to review your material and you give your consent upon submission.
7. EMAIL submissions only. DO NOT MAIL ANY ORIGINAL ARTWORK. DO NOT PERSONAL MESSAGE ME unless arrangements can be made ahead of time. All submissions to be sent to Ben Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to use “NHSYB submission” header. This will help in making sure I get it.
8.I am also looking for cover artists as well. All possible covers must be complete and in color.
9. Page rates are based on a royalty basis. Here is how it is calculated:
GROSS SALES x 20% royalty (3000 sales or below) / number of pages = page rate
if sales are over 3000 an additional 1% royalty is added per 1000 copies sold up to 25% maximum.
$5000 gross sales x 20% = $1000 / 32 pages = $31.25 per page
so the higher the sales the bigger the page rate.
Work vouchers must accompany any payment.
Payment is usually made 30 days AFTER date of publication release.
10. If accepted for publication it may take a while for it to see publication. A basic publication contract will be sent to secure the work.
