Havok Publishing

When We Acquire Your Story

If Your Story is Acquired for Daily Flash Publication on GoHavok.com

RIGHTS: Havok retains the rights to all Daily Flash stories for one year from the publication date and reserves the right to maintain that story in our online members-only databases in perpetuity, but after that one year period ends you have full rights to your story again. Other terms are delineated in our contract, which we will send to you upon acquisition of your story.

AUTHOR BIO & PHOTO: If your story is selected for Daily Flash publication, you will need to send as an attachment a 25-word bio and a high-resolution headshot (at least 300 dpi .jpg or .tif file). Your headshot should be professional—no “selfies,” props, or excessive shadows. Any related artwork, photo(s) (also high-resolution .jpg or .png files) should also be attached to the email. You must own the rights to all images you send to us, including those of your headshots.

PAYMENT: Authors are paid if their stories are selected for inclusion in an anthology.

If Your Story is Acquired for an Anthology

At least twice a year, the top stories (at least 26) over the previous months will be selected (both by readers’ choice votes and by editors’ selections) for publication in an anthology alongside a best-selling author and Havok’s staff. This anthology will be available in print and digital formats.

RIGHTS: Havok retains the rights to all Anthology stories for one year from the publication date and reserves the right to reprint the anthology in which your story was published in perpetuity, but after that one year period ends, you have full rights to your story again. Other terms are delineated in our contract, which we will send to you upon acquisition of your story.

PAYMENT, REWARDS & FAME: Havok pays authors $10 via PayPal for each story published in an Anthology, and you will receive one complimentary digital copy of the anthology. The Editor’s Choice winner will receive one free print copy of the anthology, a $100 Amazon gift card, additional literary rewards, and fame. The Reader’s Choice winner (the story that receives the highest reader ranking) will receive one free print copy of the anthology, a $50 Amazon gift card, additional literary rewards, and fame. Two additional “runners-up” will each receive one free print copy of the anthology. Author payments may be applied toward the purchase of additional print or digital copies of the anthology.
