I had started the submission process last year, but I’m opening it again.
“Tap into the fear that is trapped in those Appalachian hills, focusing more on the Pennsylvania/West Virginia area. You never know what you’ll find in the surrounding areas.”
I’m looking for horror and its different subgenres here. I want the stories to contrast greatly. The word count would be between 5,000-15,000. My plan is to have lucky number 13 stories.
This horror anthology is focused on Appalachia in the United States. Stories based outside of PA and WV will be considered as well. You do not have to write fiction based on local folklore, but if you do, please let me know.
It will pay $15 and you’ll have the option of buying extra copies at cost and selling it on your own. We would only retain rights for 6 months before they would revert back to you and you can publish it elsewhere.
It’s untitled as of yet. Publication is slated for October 2016.
It’ll print through my PenPaperPad imprint with Book Genesis designing it for us.
The due date for your short story is May 4, 2016. You can submit no more than 2. Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org as a .doc attachment. Subject: HORROR SUBMISSIONS
Send your submissions and let’s make something scary as hell together.
