Ghost Mystery/Horror Anthology

Horror anthology featuring chilling ghost mysteries. With this anthology, I want you to send chills up my spine and keep me guessing at every turn. Who is the real ghost? Do they know they are dead? Do you? Who killed them? Why? What do they want?
For this anthology, we will not be accepting flash pieces as it is hard to convey the atmosphere and intricate mystery story line that we are looking for in so few words.

Payment:  Compensation for the anthology will be one paperback print copy as well as a PDF. All authors will also get a Createspace discount code to purchase additional copies.

Editing: Yes, your story will be edited if we decide to accept it. After we go through and edit your story, it will then be sent back to you for final approval. In some cases, we may ask for revisions to be made.

Anthology Submission Calls

 

Anthology Submissions:
Goddesses of the Sea Anthology Call:

Mermaids and Sea Maidens Anthology

Submission Period: March 26th-June 5th

Word Count:    500-15,000

Theme:      
The sea is a dark and mysterious place. What lurks within the deepest caverns, unseen by those above? A haunting melody drifts across the waves, a beautiful figure floats in the shallows. Do you follow? Do you answer the sea's hypnotic call? An anthology for mermaids, sea goddesses, sirens, and other mysterious creatures of the deep.

Any time period and sub-genre (including futuristic sci-fi) are accepted, however there must be a fantasy/mythological/supernatural sea maiden featured in your story. In other words, stories about being on the sea without that component, or stories about regular sea creatures will not be accepted. There needs to be a CLEAR mystical element and not just vague hints to one. 


Response Time:   Please allow up to one month. After that, if you don't hear from us then feel free to give us a little nudge. 

Payment:  Payment will be one half-cent per word, with a minimum payment of $5.00 and a maximum of $15.00. Authors will also receive a PDF copy of the anthology prior to the release. Payments will be made by PayPal in USD. Payments will go out no later than three months after the publication date.

Editing: Yes, your story will be edited if we decide to accept it. After we go through and edit your story, it will then be sent back to you for final approval. In some cases, we may ask for revisions to be made.

We will not publish erotica in our normal monthly issues, but we do know that this is a very popular genre, which is why we are going to accept erotica submissions for anthology publication. 

Any genre may be submitted for consideration.

However, please do not send us:

incest (step relations are fine), or underage, 
bestiality (this includes werewolves in wolf form (human is fine) and tentacles, or necrophilia (exception being supernatural anthropomorphic creatures/undead)
excrement play



Princess Fairy Tale Anthology Call: [Closed]

Word Count: 1,000-40,000

We are looking for fairy tale retellings featuring princesses. Whether it be Snow White, Rapunzel, or one of the lesser know princesses, we will consider them all! We will consider any sub-genre. If you want to make a Cinderella story in space, send it. Sleeping Beauty horror? Yes please. Steampunk Little Mermaid? Go ahead. Erotica Rapunzel? We're interested. 

Winter's Grasp Anthology Call: [Closed]

Submission Period: October 10th-November 25th ​​

Word Count:    100-25,000

Theme:       For this anthology, we are looking for fantasy stories focusing on winter, snow, and ice. We will not consider urban fantasy or stories in a modern setting for this anthology. Other sub-genres are accepted.




 

Distressing Damsels Anthology Call: [Closed]

Submission Period: September 25th-October 25th​​

Word Count:    100-25,000

Theme:       Due to the popularity of our Princess Fairy Tale Anthology, we are opening submissions for another fairy tale theme. For this anthology, we are looking for stories that focus on strong heroines. We want to see stories of damsels who save themselves instead of waiting for a man to do the job for them. We want Rapunzel to find her own way out of the tower, the little mermaid to shove that dagger into the prince's heart and win back her life, Snow White to shove that poisoned apple into the queen's face... you get the idea. All genres and styles are accepted as long as the story is based on an actual fariy tale. The fairy tale does not have to be well known; we love reading the obscure ones just as much as Snow White and Cinderella.
