What we are looking for:
Everyone is scared of clowns right? Does anyone know why? I don’t either. Let’s give them a reason to be scared of clowns. We want stories that will make anyone think twice about going to a circus. Remember, just because something is full of gore doesn’t mean it’s scary. The most horrifying things are what play tricks with your mind.
Stories must be between 3,500 – 8,000 words. Works that are shorter or longer will not be considered as well as reprints. Please do not query about those.
Stories that are under 4,999 words will receive a paperback contributor copy of the finished anthology. Stories that are 5,000 words and above will receive $10.00 and one paperback contributor copy as payment.
What rights we ask for:
Exclusive Anthology Rights and Electronic Media Rights for publication in the US English language anywhere in the world. Exclusive rights will remain in place for the first year from the publication date. After that time, the rights drops to non-exclusive rights for the following four years. The anthology will remain in print for a period of five years.
