Taking Submissions: No Rest for the Wicked

March 1, 2012

Deadline: March 1st, 2012
Payment: 1 Contributor’s Copy

Title: No Rest for the Wicked
Edited and Compiled by Stacey Graham
Published by: Rainstorm Press

Genre: Horror

Theme: Think that watch was such a great bargain on eBay? Think again, Sparky. Some items have a history and we want to hear the gory details of what happened after a haunted object enters the picture.

Deadline: March 1, 2012 (or until full)
Target release date: May 2012
What we are looking for:
Ghost stories centered on a haunted object that are well-crafted without a lot of fluff. Write tight!

Humor is always welcome.
Stories: 3,000 – 5,000 words in length, but will consider shorter stories if it scares the bejeebers out of me
Flash fiction: Up to 500 words
Poetry: Up to 20 lines
What we’re not looking for:
Gratuitous violence or erotica.

Authors will receive one contributor’s copy (print and ebook) plus the option to purchase additional copies at 25% off the retail price. Poems and flash fiction payment will be one ebook copy only.

Rainstorm Press asks for first world print rights, in paperback and digital format, for the first year. After that time, the author may shop the work to other markets, but the work will remain in the anthology for a period of five years from the publication date.

No re-prints, please.
