For Mother of Gothic Angels, Razor Thin Studios is looking for tales of horror with a Gothic mood. Angels is of course the primary goal, but beyond that it is up to the writer. The only things we ask is that the tales are dark brooding and show the darkness that resides within the Gothic hearts of the angels being portrayed. Finally, make your angels unique, genuine – no need to bring up Constantine or Gabriel rich tales as they are, what they are … used.


We prefer standard manuscript formatting (good example: http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html).


Bear in mind that most publications will not publish pieces that have been published in print, eBook, or on the web, so for all intents and purposes after your work is published by us it can only be marketed as a reprint, which severely limits the number of markets that will accept it, and drastically reduces the pay rate it can receive. It is up to you, the author, to decide if publishing your work in print and/or eBook formats and/or on the web, giving up your First Publishing Right for no and/or a token payment, is really what you want to do.


MS Word (.rtf .doc .docx)


Our target is ten to fifteen short stories composed of two- to four-thousand words each. We may accept slightly longer or shorter stories if they appeal to us, so don’t feel that you need to drastically shred your story or add unnecessary material to fit the qualifications.


Love to see what you have – please do so in JPG/JPEG format and follow the storyline!


Sorry, are not accepted for this publication.
