Stories of horror with the theme of ‘FIRE’ – Rated R welcomed

​Fire – Volcanoes – Smoke – Burning – Ignition

Welcome to our four-book series, dedicated to horror from the elements.


Each quarter has been assigned an ‘element’. Please review the elements and open submission windows below. Each quarter submission window is only one month, so please make sure to submit during that specific time period Patreon members will be allowed to submit one week early, and be given a one-week extension to each quarter call.

Although there can be some fantasy elements tossed in there, the overall feel of the stories must remain in the horror genre. Aim to scare.

Each part will be approximately 70,000 words and have its own ebook and paperback. Once all four sections are complete we will release a ‘collection’ containing all four books in ebook, paperback and hardcover form. 

​​Word count: 1500 – 7000 firm.

Payment: Flat rate payment ¢1 per word CAD after approved edits.

Reprints? No

Multiple Submission? No 💀 Only one submission per author per theme/quarter. (Fire, Earth, Air, Water)

What we are looking for: Unique, clever, and terrifying stories. Well-written relatable characters with flaws and real dialogue. Take us on a journey and scare the sh*t out of us while doing it. 

What we are not looking for: Reprint, erotica (some sex is fine, just not all of it), rape, animal abuse (kill the dog, but don’t f* it).
