Football Fiction Monthly

This is something that I've been planning for about six months. The idea is to get a nice collection of short stories written by anyone to run alongside three or four main stories, much like the brilliant Football Picture Story monthly. I would be a free app with downloadable content. So one story and the quizzes free each month, with the rest costing £1 or whatever!

Mostly the stories would be prose, with illustrations, with a short comic section in the centre.

I've got three decent stories already written, but I don't want to do this on my own. Stories on anything football would be welcome, even as short as 2 - 3,000 words. Real world, biographical, fan fiction or totally made up. It is very difficult to be totally original so don't worry, almost everything has been covered.

I'll also bulk it up with some quizzes, spot the differences, spot the ball and a really hard cryptic crossword.

Here's a couple of covers I designed:
