Deadline: December 31st 2012
Payment: 10 dollar payment for story and a free copy of the Ebook upon publication. Authors will also receive a discounted price via Amazon if they wish to purcahse copies to sell at Con and such.
Alter Press is pleased to announce that submissions are open for Dread Time Stories. The stories that we all now from our childhoods are just the beginning. The reality is much more terrifying…
Alter Press is looking for previously unpublished takes on childhood fairy tales with a splatterific bent! Take them in a new direction. Did Grandmother get eaten or did she eat the wolf? Did Rumpelstiltskin truly offer freedom for the spun gold or was he simply a slave to a vicious demon? These are the questions that we would like to see asked, the scenarios explored! Twist your inner child to its limits!
Word Count 4 – 8k word count.
Attach your story as an RTF file please. (this is important as I have had issues with non RTF files in the past)
No Headers or Footers or Page Numbers
Use Italics, not underlines.
Place Word Count and Contact info on first page and a short bio as you would have it appear if your story is selected at the end of the story.
Payment will be a flat 10 dollar payment for story and a free copy of the Ebook upon publication. Authors will also receive a discounted price via Amazon if they wish to purcahse copies to sell at Con and such.
No reprints or simultaneous submissions please. Meaning that if your story is submitted elsewhere I do not want it. I do not want to feel forced to compete with other publishers, nor do I want to have a story pulled from this anthology because it was accepted elsewhere.
Send submissions to email@example.com. Please place DREAD TIME STORIES in the subject line
Deadline is Dec. 31st
Keep in mind that I will only accept one version of a fairy tale, so the more obscure you go, the less likely you will have competition for it
Good luck and let’s ruin some childhoods!
