Taking Submissions: Unnamed Fey Publishing Anthology
June 30, 2015
Deadline: June 30th, 2015
Payment: $5.00 per story
Fey Publishing is looking to put together an anthology of the most disturbing horror stories imaginable. Whether it’s about creatures who go bump in the night or those who walk around in plain daylight with evil lurking in their minds, we want them. Almost anything goes. Serial Killers. Psychopaths. Monsters. Zombies like you’ve never seen them before. Carnage. Cannibalism. Hell, even horror erotica. It can be bizarre, it can be realistic. Doesn’t matter. Let your twisted brain go wild on this one.
However, we do have to put in a few restrictions.[Editor’s Note: This market has specific guidelines for things they do not want to see. Please click on the link at the bottom of this post for all the details and follow their guidelines: it’s the polite and respectful thing to do. Also, it will help those submitting avoid being rejected on anything other than the quality of their work.]
Anything that we can’t publish on Amazon without risk of it getting yanked, we just can’t do it. Sorry folks, those are the rules.
Length: Up to 10,000 words. No minimum, but beware that flash fiction has to be pretty damn good to get our attention. No longer than 10,000 words please.
Selection: We will choose 10-13 stories for inclusion.
Pay: $5.00 per story. There will be an editor’s choice winner that will get placed at the front of the book and they will get paid a small bonus. So make those stories good.
Considerations: While we won’t restrict certain topics, be aware that violence against women and children isn’t something we will take lightly, especially if it’s only being used for shock value. Same can be said about any violence, including animal abuse. While yes, we are looking for dark, disturbing tales, we also want well-written stories that scare on a deeper level than simply by resorting to shocking violence. A solid story is paramount to getting accepted into this anthology.
Deadline: June 30th, 2015.
Publication Date: September 2015
Note: Fey Publishing does not require exclusive rights. If the piece has been published elsewhere, include permission from original publisher with your submission and state that it was previously published. If we find out that it was previously published and permission was not given before submitting to us, we will automatically deny it. It is up to you to make sure you have rights to re-publish your work with another publisher. If it’s self-published, no problem. We will take a look at it just the same. You will still hold rights to your work, we merely ask for publication rights.
Multiple submissions are allowed. If this is a simultaneous submission, please let us know with your submission. As soon as it’s accepted else, let us know as soon as possible. Whether we need to pull it or not, doesn’t matter. We still need to verify that the other publisher will let us use the piece before we can accept it.
How to submit: Please submit your story via our online submission portal. No e-mailed submissions will be allowed, and we will likely not respond if you send them via e-mail. If you want to be considered, used the link below. Please include a short bio (about 200 words or so) that includes links to your other works or social media pages. If accepted, this bio will be included in the book so those who enjoyed your work may find you. We do our best to promote the authors we work with.
We will read all submissions after the deadline, so please do not inquire about a decision before that date. It might take us 30-45 days to read through all of them, but we will keep you updated via Facebook or Twitter. If you e-mail asking about an update, we will try to get back to you, but please know everyone will get a response one way or another. If you haven’t heard from us, it means our decision hasn’t been made.
