Taking Submissions: Once Bitten
October 31, 2014
Deadline: October 31st, 2014
Payment: 4%] royalties per story published in ebook and paperback form and you will receive a contributor’s ebook copy only.
We all like a dash of romance in our lives. So here’s hoping you like it in your fiction!
Published by KnightWatch Press, Once Bitten will be an anthology of stories telling tales of horrific love. As you can see by the beautiful artwork by Stephen Cooney, we are looking for stories which are horror, with that elusive hint of romance. We don’t like ‘googly-eyed chicks’ and we don’t like paranormal romance (not saying a word about the publishing director Theresa though!) Think of love turned sour, or love that works well in extraordinary circumstances. Could these two peas in a pod really be pod people? What if Harry was a spider and Sally was his victim? As long as it combines a thematic element of love in a horror story, that’s all we ask. Oh, and we’d like it to be original and well written too!
All submissions should:
Be between 2,000 and 6,000 words in Standard Manuscript Format (http://www.shunn.net/format/story.html).
Be typed in Courier or Times New Roman 12
Include your full details (name/address/telephone number/email address) at the top of your document.
Be sent to [email protected] as .doc or .rtf documents with the email subject header “SURNAME/LOVE/WORDCOUNT”.
Previously published stories WILL be considered for this anthology. Authors will retain copyright.
Multiple submissions up to a maximum of two stories per author can be submitted.
We will write to you within approximately four to eight weeks of the submission deadline to let you know if you have been successful.
We will pay [4%] royalties per story published in ebook and paperback form and you will receive a contributor’s ebook copy only.
Failure to comply will result in . . . total anhiliation.
