Taking Submissions: Toilet Zone 3: The Royal Flush

December 31, 2021

Deadline: December 31st, 2021
Payment: $5
Theme: Stories that are the perfect length for between sitting down and having a ‘royal flush’

THE TOILET ZONE: THE ROYAL FLUSH
SUBMISSIONS EXTENDED TO 31 DECEMBER 2021
HellBound’s third outing to the smallest room…
And no, don’t panic, we’re still not looking for lavatory-themed tales of terror – although should your short story involve the smallest room in the house, we’d be more than delighted to read it!
The theme for this anthology is short horror stories that will make an ideal sit-down read, just long enough for those extended stays at the convenience, and terrifying enough that they really are best read whilst over water….

We have based story length upon the average time spent upon the convenience (10-15 mins) and the average reading speed (200-250 words per minute), so that the stories within this exceptionally unique anthology will be the perfect ‘per visit’ length!
NOTE: we will also accept a handful of shorter stories – ‘flush fiction’ – if the fit is right!
To submit, email your polished story to: [email protected]hellboundbookspublishing.com
