Taking Submissions: 50 States of Fear: California

Deadline: July 31st, 2019
Payment: Royalties

The first entry in an anthology series showcasing horror in every state, “50 States of Fear: California” is all about the terrors, horrors, creeps, and shrieks found in the Golden State.

Stories must be horror, they must be original (no urban legends, creepypasta, or retellings of true crime), and must take place in California.

The submission deadline is 31 July 2019. Our target is 30 stories. There is no limit on the number of submissions per author, but we reserve the right to limit the number of accepted stories per author.

As payment, authors will receive royalties divided by word count.

Guidelines

First and foremast, all submissions must be horror. However, we recognize that horror is a very broad and often nuanced genre. To that end, we’ll read stories that fit into other genres (thriller, family drama, coming of age, science fiction, fantasy, comedy, romance, et cetera) as long as the story contains horror, and as long as horror is integral to the narrative.

ALL submissions must be within the horror genre, and MUST meet the following requirements:

Submit all documents as an attachment in .docx or .pages format

12 point Arial, Calibri, or Courier font

Double-spaced

Submit via email to [email protected]

In the body of the email, include your name and contact information.

PLEASE NOTE: If your piece is accepted for publication, we take First Print and Electronic Publishing Rights. A copy of our publishing contract is available upon request.

Open Submissions: Anthologies

These are general guidelines for ALL anthology submissions.

We’re looking for stories between 500 – 7500 words. A few words under or over won’t necessarily disqualify a story, but please keep as close to the guidelines as possible.

Stories MUST fit within the horror genre.

Guidelines for all submissions:

  • We want horror in all its forms—from literary to weird, Gothic to psychological, and (almost) everything in between. We’re looking for amazing stories from amazing authors, regardless of race, gender, religion—if you’ve got something good, we want it.
  • Need a firm idea of what we’re looking for? Check out the JournalStone websitePlease do not submit romance, erotica, or religious fiction.
  • The title of your email subject line and file name should read: “Submission [type] – [title] – [last name]”. For example: Submission Novel – Carrie – King. This should also be the title of your manuscript document.
  • In the body of your email, please give us the word count, genre, and a brief synopsis (300-500 words) of the plot. Submissions without this information will be automatically deleted. Do not include your synopsis as an attachment.
  • Submissions should be sent to [email protected]. Attach the full manuscript as a .doc, .docx or .rtf file (no PDFs). Do not paste your manuscript in the body of the email. For proper formatting of your manuscript, please follow the Shunn way.
  • Minimum word count for novels and fiction collections: 50,000.
  • We consider the quality of the editing in our review process. Please fully proofread and edit manuscripts prior to submission. Do not submit sample chapters or a work in progress. We accept only completed works.

  • Submissions are free. We do not charge any fees to authors. If we approve your submission for publication, we will make the investment in you and your product.
  • Please, no multiple submissions, and no previously-published novels. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but let us know that your work has been sent out to other markets, and if it gets accepted elsewhere.
  • This goes without saying (or so we thought) but: if you’ve submitted to us before and we declined your manuscript, do not submit it again.
  • We offer standard royalty terms.
  • We will be reading for both JournalStone and its imprint, Trepidatio Publishing.

Taking Submissions: The Monsters We Forgot

Deadline: July 31st, 2019
Payment: Royalties

“The Monsters We Forgot” is an anthology based on urban legends, folktales, and fairy tales that nobody knows. In essence: we want you to make up an urban legend, folktale, fairy tale, cryptid, or piece of town lore and either write it, or write a story about people who have to deal with it one way or the other. For example: people who encounter the subject of the legend; how the legend came to be; how the legend affects people; people who lived through (or with?) it, and so on.

The submission deadline is 31 July 2019. Our target is 30 stories. Authors may submit as many stories as they wish, but each author will be limited to three accepted stories.

As payment, authors will receive royalties divided by word count.
