Taking Submissions: A Friend of a Friend Told Me: Legends of Urban Horror
August 20, 2012
Deadline: August 20, 2012
Payment: An eBook copy will be sent to all contributors and up to 5 paperback copies per author will be available to purchase at cost. 50% of the royalties will be distributed between all contributors.
We’ve all come across them. The warnings told by a friend of a friend – be careful! Some ghastly end met while undertaking a dare, don’t go in there, that’s the Devil’s Gate! Or perhaps your mind leaps to the cryptofiction realm – Bigfoot, the Chupacabra, or monstrous alligators roaming the sewers under New York City!
Wherever your mind takes you, we want to come along for the ride. Ensure your story is dark and edgy, preferably full of horror – we want the reader to be too scared to step off the beaten path and wander into realms unknown.
All urban legends are open for interpretation; just be sure to add the requisite elements of horror.
