THE IDEA behind TWELVETALES
LOTS of people say they want to write fiction ... a book ... a story ...
... but never get round to it.
So this is your chance!
The aim is not blockbusters! or high sales!
The idea is just to get yourself and you friends WRITING
and have lots of CREATIVE FUN on the way ...
YOU and YOUR FRIENDS each write a fictional story.
The stories will be put together to make up a TWELVETALES short story book.
Each TWELVETALES book will become one of the
TWELVETALES series of short story books -
each book written by different groups of friends ...
The books are intended just to give to family and friends -
or sell for charity if you like - or even commercially if you think you can.
The number of copies printed is up to your group.
72 copies is the minimum - that is 6 copies per writer at a cost of £36 per writer.
The PURPOSE is the WRITING!
Stories will be published by Beetleheart Publishing.
Beetleheart reserves the right to publish and re-publish ad infinitum the stories
as part of the TWELVETALES imprint (or other Beetleheart imprint)
either alone, or with other TWELVETALES stories
either as a printed version or online (eg for kindle)
and to use all or part of the stories for marketing and pr purposes.
Otherwise writers own the copyright of their stories
- and are free to publish them as they wish ...
enter competitions, approach other publishers, sell the film rights ...
