Taking Submissions: Road Kill: Texas Horror By Texas Writers Volume 7

June 1, 2022

Deadline: June 1st, 2022
Payment: 2 cents per word and a contributor’s copy
Theme: Texas Horror By Texas Writers

Death’s Head Press is pleased to announce plans for the 2022 edition of Road Kill: Texas Horror by Texas Writers, Vol. 7.

Author Wiliam Jensen will serve as editor, and he’s looking for original horror stores 1,500-10,000 words in length.

The stories must be written and submitted by Texas authors and must be set (based) here – hence the title. Two cents per word and contributing writers will receive one free copy and a 50% discounted wholesale price on any copies of the book that he or she purchases to carry and sell on their own. Writer stipends will look something like this: 10,000 words – $200, 7,500 words – $150, 5,000 words – $100, 2,500 words – $50, 1,500 words – $30.

All payments will be made upon official acceptance, and when acceptance is communicated each author will need to send a short bio.

Death’s Head will be requesting two-year non-exclusive rights. This means we will use your story in this anthology and we can print excerpts of it online and otherwise (for promotional purposes, etc), but two years down the road you can do with it what you like.

The Submission Period begins on March 1. The deadline to turn in stories is June 1, 2022, and our intent is to have the book printed and available by October 15, 2022, in plenty of time for Halloween. Please send submissions to [email protected]
