On the way home from Anthocon 2012, I was sitting in the back of the car playing on my iPhone, when I came across this beauty of a submission call.
After reading it out loud to my buddies in the car, we laughed and laughed and laughed (and laughed some more).
Now, let’s not all run out and write a story for this…
Actually, NOBODY should write a story for this.
Any guesses on who STFU Publishing belongs to?
(Yes, it’s actually called Shut The F*ck Up Publishing, the name itself should give you a little hint.)
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
Tony G. has reared his ugly head again.
I’m hoping you’ll share this post for two reasons.

“Formatting is how you like, but preferred is single spaced with no tabs. Have name address, phone number info on first page only. If you don’t want to put phone and other info that’s fine, but don’t bother submitting then, as there are times when direct communication is necessary during the editing process.”
It should say: “There are times when direct communication is necessary, unless I’m going to change everything in your story…”
