March 31, 2011
Best New Werewolf Tales Volume One
DEADLINE: March 31st 2011
PAYMENT: 1 cent/word and contributor copy
Reading Period: Submission period starts now and ends March 31st 2011.
Word Count: Between 1,500 and 15,000 words.
What we want: This is a reprint anthology for Books of the Dead Press. Werewolf stories only. If your story does not have a werewolf in it – or more than one werewolf in it – your story is not right for this anthology. We are looking for the best of the bunch. The year your story was released does not matter; whether or not it was previously released does. If you have a story that has not yet been published, but you have previously sold a story to Books of the Dead, feel free to send it. If you have never had a story published by Books of the Dead, query first.
What we don’t want: Stories that do not have a werewolf, or have only been published on personal websites, blogs, etc.
Payment: Authors receive 1¢ per word, plus one contributor copy of the book.
Multiple Submissions: A maximum of two stories; please put both stories in the same email.
Submission guidelines: Email your manuscript as a doc attachment (not docx) to BestHorror (AT) gmail.com. Preferred font: Garamond. Please double space, number your pages, and use standard manuscript formatting. Keep italics in italics. We claim non-exclusive electronic rights and print rights; the author maintains all other rights.
Return time: As soon as possible, once the submission period has ended.
Submissions are to be sent to: Besthorror at gmail.com
