NEW ANTHOLOGY FROM NIGHTMARE PRESS: KENTUCKY FRIED HORROR!!!
Nightmare Press is now taking short story submissions for KENTUCKY FRIED HORROR. The theme is simple: short horror stories that take place in Kentucky, and you’ll get bonus points if it reflects Kentucky culture. Anybody can submit – you don’t have to be from the Bluegrass State to participate.
Here are the details:
What we want: Horror shorts that take place in Kentucky, 1000-5000 words, send it in a word doc or docx file attached to the email. Do not paste it in the body of the email. In the subject line, write KENTUCKY FRIED HORROR <title> <your name>. No more than one submission per person. Reprints are fine as long as you own the publishing rights to the story.
What you get: $25 if accepted, a contributor’s copy of the book, the opportunity to purchase copies at cost (including shipping and taxes).
When and where: You have time for this one. The deadline is October 1st. Email your submissions to [email protected]
Two other points: We will not ask for exclusivity for more than 30 days after publication.
Also, if your story is a reprint and has previously been edited elsewhere, we reserve the right to edit the story again. We know some authors have issue with reprints being re-edited because they want the story to remain the same across all publications, so if that is a problem, do not submit your reprint. If you are okay with Nightmare Press re-editing the story, then by all means, please submit it.
We look forward to seeing how frightening you all can make Kentucky.
