Taking Submissions: Madame Gray’s Graveyard of Blood

August 1

Deadline: August 1st, 2023
Payment: $5
Theme: Graveyard-themed Horror

Madame Gray is excited to announce a call for graveyard-themed submissions for her new anthology, Madame Gray’s Graveyard of Blood!

Open to all subgenres of horror, as long as the story takes place in, or is connected in some way to a cemetery. The more ghoulish, the better! The scarier, the merrier! And a bit of gallows humor is always welcome, but not required.

Well-written tales that are off the beaten path with a twist ending stand the best chance of getting accepted.

Compiled and edited by Gerri R. Gray (Madame Gray’s Poe-Pourri of Terror, Toilet Zone 2 & 3) and published by Hellbound Books, this anthology (the fourth in the popular Madame Gray series) is open to undiscovered writers and established voices alike.

Stories must be original and previously unpublished. Multiple and simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know straight away if your story is accepted elsewhere. No poetry or flash fiction, please. Payment is $5.00 plus a free contributors copy (ebook).

PLEASE read and adhere to our submission guidelines… 
* Word format saved in .doc, or .docx
* 12 pt times new roman
* Double spaced
* Absolutely NO extra lines between paragraphs!
* 2.5K – 8K word count

To submit, email your polished story to [email protected]
