Taking Submissions: D.O.A. II: Extreme Horror Collection

August 1, 2012 - August 2, 2012

Deadline: August 1st 2012
Payment: 1 cent a word plus a contributors copy

You were warned…but you just didn’t listen! So after the horrific success of D.O.A., we have decided to please the masses by releasing a second volume.

Volume II will be a more disturbing anthology (if that’s even possible), unsuitable for the easily offended, disgusted, or those prone to vomiting. We want stories, 750 – 5,000 words, that push the limits. The stranger and gorier the better. If you read the first installment, than you know that no subject is too taboo. However, we’re looking for you to exploit a lesser know taboo.

Keep in mind that we are not simply looking for torture or scenes of gratuitous violence lacking a point or direction. Blood and guts only work if there is a great story and creative twists to back it up. Imagine that the band Cannibal Corpse got together with Richard Matheson and penned a story. The result would be D.O.A. Think Edward Lee, think Bizarro, think…well, you get the picture. So if you ever had a story idea that you felt was too extreme or offensive for a sane publisher, send it our way. We want your worst!

Accepted stories will be paid a rate of 1 cent a word plus a contributors copy.

Stories will be accepted from May 1, 2012 until August 1, 2012. We will not make final selections until the end of the submission period. Please do not query about the status of your submission until September 1, 2012.

Send submissions to [email protected].

Subject should read: “D.O.A. II: story title/author last name”
