Formatting guidelines: Please read carefully

We are reading these stories blind, so please refrain from adding your name or any identifying information on the story itself. All fiction manuscripts should be in a standard manuscript format with 12 pt Times New Roman, 1.5 line spacing, set auto-indent new paragraphs. Please make sure the title is on the first page, but no other identifying details in the manuscript itself.

Title your manuscript with the story title and doors ” (the actual story title) – Doors” – again no identifying names on the title of the document.

The form you fill out will have your name and bio, along with the title so we can identify your story once it has been read.

How to submit: Please submit using this FORM when the submission window is open.

Multiple Submission: Yes – We will be happy to read up to TWO stories per author.

However, we will publish a max of one stories per author, per book. Please send each story in a separate form.

Reprints: Yes we are accepting a small number of reprints.

Simultaneous submissions: Yes –  Please let us know when and if it has been accepted elsewhere.

Things that are a hard pass: any animal erotica and all forms of rape.
