SoftCopy publishes books of short stories for the iPad and Kindle.
With our anthologies, multiple writers begin with the same starting point—a phrase, an object, a color—and create pieces that range from one-liners to 5,000 words. We toss in some amazing art along the same theme, and we publish it as a collection.
In My First Time, our debut book for the iPad and Kindle, fifty writers and artists riff on the “first time” theme. Check out some screenshots and samples.
Writers: We’re here for you. A major part of our mission is to champion up-and-coming authors. SoftCopy can promote our books in ways that are tough for single writers to do without much of a marketing budget. We focus on short story collections to get exposure for many writers in each collection, and we nominate our contributors for awards to get additional eyes on their work.
We believe you should never have to pay to get your work published. We don’t charge a submission, review or publication fee. Ever.
We also believe it’s nice to get paid. For select anthologies, contributors are eligible for cash prizes based on the first six months’ sales. If we hit our targets, you share in the wealth. If not, we had a good time and hey, look at you — you’re published.

Our goal is to get people to write, and to get good writing to the people. We make our ebooks available via the millions of iPads and Kindles populating the trains, cafés, beaches and backyards of readers everywhere. If you want to be part of it, submit!
