Taking Submissions: Shadow People And Cursed Objects

July 31, 2015


Deadline: July 31, 2015.
Payment: $50 and 10 contributor’s copies
Reprints: Yes


  • 13 fiction stories about ghosts or haunted objects. (As long as your story contains one or the other, we want to read it!)
  • We’re open to any genre of fiction. Your story doesn’t have to be horror. It can be a paranormal romance, literary, humor. (Although, we’re not going to lie. We love horror. But we’re looking for the very best stories about ghosts and/or haunted objects that we can find.)
  • It must, however, involve either a ghost or a haunted object. (We can’t reiterate this enough.)
  • Word limit: 5,000


Our anthology is going to be a little different. We want readers to participate by trying to figure out if your tale of a ghost/shadow person or haunted object is based on a true story or not.

The print version will have a section at the back detailing whether the author based their tale on a true story…or if they culled it purely from their imagination.

The ebook version will have a link back to our site with the answer.

Your story does not have to be based on a true story.

If it is based on a true story, we’ll need you to supply the details. (You don’t have to send it with your submission, though. We can get this info later if your story is accepted. We want to try and guess whether it’s based on a true story or not. We’re not gonna lie. We’ll cheat if you supply it ahead of time.)


Authors will receive $50 upon acceptance for Non-Exclusive Rights, plus 10 print copies upon publication.


Submissions accepted until July 31, 2015.


Use the Submission Form below. (It follows the FAQs.)

Please note a few things before submitting:

  1. It’s perfectly acceptable to copy & paste your story from a Word document into the form.
  2. If you do copy & paste, please take a moment to check the formatting before sending. If it’s all running together, please at least add spaces between paragraphs. This helps make it more readable on our end.
  3. We are looking for fiction.
  4. In case you missed it above, your story must contain either or ghost or haunted object. (Or both if you can manage that!)
