Taking Submissions: Christmas Spirits

September 1, 2014


Deadline: September 1st, 2014
Payment: Two complimentary copies

Submission guidelines:

  1. Ghost stories is interpreted in its widest sense for this collection. Tales do not have to be traditional ghost stories in the vein of MR James/Charles Dickens, nor do they need to be horror stories. Feel free to surprise us with something different – as long as it features ghosts as a central component.

  2. Stories should be no more than 5000 words, no minimum word count for this collection. Word count does not include title.

  3. Send submissions as a word attachment (.doc or .rtf) to[email protected] with the subject line ‘GHOST STORY SUBMISSION.’

  4. There is no particular preferred layout, as long as stories are presented tidily.

  5. Violence, swearing and sexual content and acceptable, provided that they fit the story – gratuitous usages or use for shock value will harm your chances of acceptance.

  6. Boo Books acquires first English language rights, and makes no limit on authors use of the story elsewhere. Copyright remains with the author in all instances.

  7. Authors will receive two complimentary copies of the anthology – there is no cash payment for acceptance in this anthology.

If you have any queries on these guidelines, or the collection itself, feel free to email Alex Davis, editor and publisher, at [email protected]
