[two_third_last]Werewolves, vampires, ghosts, fairies, djinns, goblins, trolls, witches, brownies, banshees—beings that are not of this world. Or maybe they are…
We had a blast doing a Halloween anthology in 2013. When the Clock Strikes Thirteen has been well received and has even won the “The Things That Go Bump & Grind In The Night Award” from the Rainbow Reader’s website.
So we decided that we’d love to publish another anthology in October 2014 with stories that involve Halloween in one way or another.
The anthology will be called Wicked Things and we just finalized the cover a few days ago.
We already received a bunch of great stories. But there’s place for more.
So, this is a gentle reminder for all those who’d love to see their story published in our anthology:
We are looking for lesbian fiction. That hasn’t changed.
All submissions must have either Halloween or supernatural beings as the main theme. The stories can be romantic, humorous, enthralling, spooky or erotic.
We accept only short stories that haven’t been previously published.
We are looking for stories between 4,000 and 12,000 words in length.
Writers whose stories are selected for the anthology will receive a one-time payment of $40 (via PayPal) plus a free e-book of the anthology in each format (epub, mobi, pdf).
The deadline to receive submissions is July 31, 2014.
Electronic submissions only. Please send your story as an e-mail attachment (.doc, .docx, or .rtf) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Halloween Anthology” in the subject line of your e-mail. In the body of your e-mail, please include your name, the title and word count of your story, and a two-or-three-sentence summary of your story.
It will take our editors about two weeks to review your submission; then we’ll get back to you.
We are looking forward to receiving your stories.
