Taking Submissions: Noirville

September 30, 2017

Deadline: September 30th, 2017
Payment: Royalty Split

Announcing NOIRVILLE an exciting new competition for crime fiction authors.

We get hundreds of submissions every week and in among all the novels we’ve noticed an increasing number of writers pitching short stories to us – at Fahrenheit we’re passionate about giving new talent a chance to break through so we thought what better way to kill two birds with one stone?

So how is it gonna work?

Simple. The best 12 stories (as chosen by our panel of judges) will be published in Fahrenheit’s first short story collection NOIRVILLE which will be published in both eBook & paperback towards the end of 2017.

Who are the judges?

Rather than the usual publishing industry suspects we’ve compiled a panel of judges made up of four of the very best book bloggers around. As an added bonus, Jo Perry, Fahrenheit’s very own High Priestess Of Noir, has agreed to chair the judging panel.

What does it cost to enter?

Unlike most short story competiions this one is FREE TO ENTER and winning authors will be paid royalties on their stories.

The Rules

You know we hate rules so we’ve tried to keep this simple….

  • 1} Stories must be LESS THAN 7500 words in length
  • 2) Stories must NOT have been previously published.
  • 3) Stories must be set firmly in the Crime/Thriller genre.
  • 4) Existing Fahrenheit authors are very welcome to submit entries but the judges will be voting blind so there will be zero chance of preferential treatment.
  • 5) This is meant to fun so use your common sense, stick to the rules, and don’t be a dick.
  • 6) ALL our decisions are final and if you don’t like it go tell your momma cause she’s the only one who cares.

So how do I enter?

It’s very simple to enter, simply email your entry to this address – [email protected]
