Taking Submissions: Daylight Dims Volume 2

June 30, 2014


Deadline: $0.01 a word and an ebook
Payment: June 30th, 2014

We want unique, strange, and compelling horror fiction. The writing style should be unusual but mesmerizing. The characters should be believable. Awe us, make us cry, make us laugh, make us sigh. The ideal story should stay with us for a long time after reading.

Expectations: We will not accept reprints, multiple submissions, or simultaneous submissions. To clarify, this means that we will not accept a story that has already been published, you can only submit one story, and you cannot have the story you submit to us also submitted to other publications.

Response time: We will back to you as soon as possible, but many things factor into our response time. The goal is to have it back to you within four to six weeks from submission date.

Length: The best stories are those written in the right amount of words. There is no
word minimum, but the ideal maximum is 10,000 words. The preferred range is

Compensation: You will be paid $0.01 a word and an ebook for original work and first-printing, world exclusive rights (text and audio) for 12 (twelve) months after the anthology is released.

About Us: Volume 1 released Halloween, 2013. It featured thirteen stories that crossed the genres of surreal horror, dark fantasy, and heart pounding dread. The debut horror anthology lived up to the guarantee to twist the reader’s perception, and we can’t wait to do that again.

From the common, comfortable tropes, to the more taboo, the tales should have a literary aspect designed to expand the readers understanding of what true horror can be.
