Payment: Exposure and Royalties

Flash fiction & Short Stories (1,000 – 6,000 words)

This anthology is going to be filled with fears, phobias and frightening occurrences of terror. I would like your best story about fear, psychological, mythological, horrific, monsters are good even the boogeyman if it strikes your fancy. Let me know what fear is to the lead in the story, what they feel, what they see, what they hear when they are confronted by the things that go bump in the night, the things that we all take for granted. If your lead is afraid of apples then tell me a frightening story about apples. The choices are yours. I want this to be a frightening experience for the reader, a rollercoaster ride so to speak so shine with your submissions.
