First Horror Novel Series
Beginning September 1, 2020 we’ll accept submissions for 40k+ word manuscripts from authors who’ve never published a novel. Paying $500 signing bonus + $500 advance upon publication, and a 20% (publisher) / 80% (author) royalty share.
You’re welcome to submit (1) complete, original, and unpublished 40k+ word manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have at least (2) paid horror writing credits and have never published a novel (we won’t count self-published books that briefly appeared on Amazon against you.) If you have novellas and short story collections in print, you’re still eligible.
We’re looking for horror stories in the vein of what we’ve previously published, not dystopian science fiction nor dark fantasy.
Please include your Twitter, author website, two of your writing credits, and a brief bio with your manuscript. We will read submissions until we sign a contract for a novel. At which point the submissions window will close until after publication of said novel.
We aim to release one novel per year in this series.
2020 Horror Anthology Submission Guidelines – Places We Fear to Tread
We’re always looking to work on exciting, offbeat projects with established and up-and-coming writers. We’ve put out themed anthologies, a black comedy novel, illustrated horror collections, an adult fairy tale book, a literary Christmas novella, and have worked with some of the finest authors in horror today. Feel free to query us!
