  • Making Waves — Stories About People Who Inspire and Motivate Us
  • The Holiday Season
  • Contest: Great Customer Service Stories
  • Stories of Forgiveness
  • Internet Dating Stories
  • Stories That Exemplify Teamwork
  • Stories About Great Teachers
  • Stories About Other Role Models
  • Stories That Exemplify Leadership
  • Awe-Inspiring Travel Stories
  • Humorous Travel Stories
  • It’s Only a Game — Lessons Learned from Playing/Coaching Sports
  • Advice You’d Like to Pass On to Others
  • Cubicle Stories — Life in the Modern Workplace
  • They are currently updating their site so I couldn’t find payment information but here is the link to information on their various projects. Take the time to look around and you’ll find examples of what they like.

    Good luck!



    1. Hi SueBE! Thanks so much for sharing information about Dream of Things. I recently updated payment information. Authors can visit for full details, but here’s a recap: Dream of Things pays a 15% royalty on hardback books, a 10% royalty on trade paperback books, and a 20-40% royalty on electronic books (depending on the sales channel). For anthologies, Dream of Things purchases one-time rights. Royalties are paid quarterly. Each author’s share of the royalties is prorated based on word count. (Example: If you contribute a 2,000-word story to a 40,000-word book, you will receive 5% of the royalties for that book.) Authors also receive five free copies upon publication, and a 50% discount on additional copies. -Mike O’Mary, founding dreamer,
