You may have seen it plastered all over Facebook, I know that I have, Tor just signed a $3.4 Million dollar, ten year deal with John Scalzi for 13 books. That’s quite a commitment. Some writers are saying that he could have made more with a different deal. Perhaps. He still gets royalties. And, honestly, in the publishing business, you can’t beat that kind of stability.
I was just looking at Tor.com and saw that they are currently accepting submissions. Their novella submissions closes in a few days, so I’m not going to make that deadline. But they are also accepting short stories. I happen to have a short story that’s looking for a home, so I’m going to submit. Hopefully they’ll like it.
Tor appears to be a great publisher of SciFi, among other things. I’ve heard of Tor before this, but I’m not especially familiar. However, I’m looking forward to learning more about them.
