Welcome to Zombie Pirate Publishing's Patreon Page.

Zombie Pirate Publishing was founded in an Australian backyard early in 2017. We put out a call for submissions for a science fiction anthology, THE COLLAPSAR DIRECTIVE, and were blown away by the response we received, short stories flooding in from authors around the globe. We've now half way through our fifth and sixth calls and will soon start a seventh (to be announced September 1st (August 1st for some patron tiers)). Our fourth release PHUKET TATTOO is due August 1st. Our anthologies are available on amazon in paperbacks or ebooks.

We've decided to start this Patreon page for two reasons. The first is simple: we want to offer our authors payment for their hard work. The first goal will be to have each successful submission receive a small payment on publication of their story, and building towards contributor's copies as we reach various monthly patron goals, with an eye to increasing the payment to a more meaningful figure as we move forward.

The second reason for starting this page was a desire to give everything we have to this venture, and make the most of Zombie Pirate Publishing's potential. As we reach various monthly goals we will be able to give more of our time to any given project, and as a result the quality of our output will only increase, as well as the number of books we are able to produce each year. This will also help to cover some of the expenses of the cover art, printing costs, advertising and such.

Each month, one of the short stories from the previous anthology will be published on our patron-only feed, meaning that three of the accepted stories for each anthology will be available to patrons even if they are in the lower reward tiers. We will also release a special sneak peak short story a month before the anthology it is in becomes available to the public,

So welcome to Zombie Pirate Publishing and thank you for your time and patronage. A big thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far. We couldn't have done it without you. Onward and upwards to bigger and better things!!!





Some general terms and conditions, and FAQs:

- To fund a book takes 3 months. Therefore authors accepted into any particular anthology will be paid based on the goal we have reached on the day submissions close. If we hit another goal the following day, that just means our next anthology will be paid at a higher rate.
- Only our anthologies with deadlines will be paid. Flash Fiction and Poetry Anthologies will be available as rewards for patrons (if they choose them as their reward) but they are outside of the funding structure we have set up for our main books.
