Taking Submissions: Inanimate Things: Volume Two

May 1

Deadline: May 1st, 2024
Payment: $10 and a contributor’s copy
Theme: Horror stories about inanimate things that are living

Inanimate Things: Volume Two. With the success of Volume One, we decided to do it again!

We are looking for horror short stories between 1500 and 6,000 words in length (can go over a little bit, we aren’t too particular. Just not shorter than 1500 words) about inanimate things that are living. It could be a doll, the dead flesh of zombies, or your Ford F-150. The story needs to involve this subject in some way…and be scary too.

Payment: Authors shall receive a payment of $10 along with a paperback copy of the anthology once it is completed.

Rights: First Print and Electronic Publication rights, the non-exclusive rights to include the story in a print, audiobook, and digital book, and a one-year (12 month) period of exclusivity from the date of publication. All other rights remain entirely with the author.

OTHER STUFF: No poetry or reprints. No novel extracts. Authors are welcome to submit more than one story for the anthology (no more than two per author though) but please submit them in separate emails.

Submission Deadline: May 1, 2024.

Expected Publication Date: January 15, 2025.

Email submissions to [email protected] with a story either: 1) attached in Microsoft Word; or 2) with the entire story pasted inside the body of the email. Either one is fine. We try to reply and let you know if we are not using your submission within 4 weeks…but if you do not hear from within four weeks from submission (check your Spam folder) then we did not accept it. Please put EXACTLY the following in the subject line: ATTN: SUBMISSION FOR INANIMATE THINGS.
