Pocket novel guidelines
You'd also get to see a book with your (writing) name on the cover in major retailers throughout the country.
As all rights are not taken on these, authors can claim ALCS with no special permission required! (I believe that generally amounts to more than the initial fee).
Several pocket novelists also later either self publish their pocket novels, and/or sell the large print rights. As well as the sales income, this also gives the potential to earn plr.
I'm not saying this justifies the initial low fee, but it's something to consider before dismissing the idea of writing a pocket novel as not worthwhile.
If you have one of these accepted, they'll then know you and you'll be able to send short stories too, if you wish.
