Taking Submissions: Bloody Heather

May 1, 2015


Deadline: May 1st, 2015
Payment: Equal share of 50% net profits from sales and a contributor’s copy

I am pleased to announce the submission call for our Scottish Horror Anthology: Bloody Heather. Think of mist-covered hills, gothic cities, lonely isles – where better for your horror story than Scotland? Scotland is simply the theme of the anthology, the rest is up to you and your imagination. And no, you yourself don’t actually have to be Scottish to make a submission.

The novellas must range between 20,000 to 30,000 words in length. Please note, only manuscripts that fall in this word count will be considered. The collection will be released as an e-book and we anticipate a release in print to coincide with this, in summe/autumn of 2015.

Submissions are open to all authors, whether already published with Dark Chapter Press or aspiring to be published with Dark Chapter Press. All submissions must be new, original material—previously published submissions will not be considered. Previously submitted manuscripts will not be considered either. Be aware that manuscripts submitted for this anthology cannot be resubmitted at a later date unless by invitation from the editor.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, please send an email to [email protected] and include:
The full manuscript (of 20,000 to 30,000 words) with a comprehensive 2-5 page synopsis. Also include a letter of introduction/query letter.

As well, when you send your manuscript, be sure to use the naming convention Bloody_Heather_Your Title_MS and Bloody_Heather_Your Title_Synopsis. This will ensure that your submission is processed as a priority under the special call for this anthology.
Submissions are open until 1st May 2015.

Payment: Each contributor will recieve equal share of 50% net profits from sales of the ebook and paperback versions of the Bloody Heather Anthology, for their accepted contribution, with a copy of the book for each contributor gratis, all pending full publishing agreement acceptance.
