Submit Your Short Story, Win $150!


Yesterday I posted the big announcement of my new publishing company, Endever Publishing Studios, and introduced you to my co-founders/co-owners, Joseph and Lynn. I am so excited to keep you abreast of the company’s growth and for you to get to know my partners through the next several months.

Thank you SO much for your support and likes and Facebook shares (127 in under 24 hours!). But remember, it doesn’t just stop there.

Your short story submission is vital to our company’s birth. Here’s why. The $10 fee goes  to the following:

  • The $150 cash prize for the winner of the writing contest (chosen amongst three finalists who will have their work published on this blog). On top of the monetary prize, the winner will have his/her story published on this blog and Endever’s blog which will be up soon, AND have the opportunity to write a short story to be featured in one of our upcoming books published through Endever.
  • It costs around $250 to resister the company in the state of Kentucky.
  • We’re looking at up to $150 to purchase an ISBN number for our first book (that little barcode on the back of all of your books).
  • Any remaining money will go toward a professional cover design artist to give our first book (which we decided on today) a professional look and feel.

Friends, I implore you to keep sharing this link to our writing contest, spread the word, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, submit your short story for consideration to win the prize and help fund Endever.

Endever Publishing Studios, I believe, is just the first step to revolutionizing the publishing industry, and your submission can be a part of that much-needed change.

Thank you so much for your support and good luck!

    I like enthusiastic startups. After 40 plus years of designing books I’d like to talk about offering you a free cover design for your first published novel – no strings attached.

  9. Hi Andrew!

    We tried to e-mail you, but it said invalid, so disapprove this message if you like: It just hit me, out in the shed, that you are the guy to do Simon Pokagon’s Queen of the Woods. This is better than fiction, and it really happened. The book is a rare book from the 1880’s available only by interlibrary loan. The writer is the son of Joseph Pokagon, a very great man, the guy who sold Chicago to the U.S. Simon’s wife is the woods girl, and she learns to call the animals since her only playmates in the language forming years were the critters. She has a stag who loves her, until she grows up and meets Simon. It is tragic, and really occurred in the woods of Michigania. It has a teaching against alcohol, good for our time too. Joseph is the only one I know to successfully oppose Native removal through the courts. I’ll dig out the reference if you like it, or, it is in the notes to my local history webpage. (P. S. Our Internet search engine traffic is still blocked. We’ve taken to calling it word-of-mouth press, as that is all our traffic. Thanks, Matt Molon-wedge! He’s makin money!)
