Taking Submissions: We’ve Been Trumped!

October 1, 2016


Deadline: October 1st, 2016
Payment: Contributor’s Copy and royalty split

Stories about life under Trump

Submission period:  August 1st through September 15th
Target publication date:  October 1st

Darkhouse Books is looking for light-hearted, satirical stories envisioning life under President Trump.

Length: 2500 to 5000 (exceptions will be considered) Graphic stories will be considered, as well as paranormal.

Please Note:

  • This is a quick turn-around project. We will begin selecting stories before submissions close, best not to wait until the last day.
  • We are not looking for political diatribes, and such will be rejected regardless of the quality or cause.
  • Sorry, but Trump can only appear as an ancillary character, and we’d prefer he not appear at all. UPDATE – Okay, we’ll let in some stories with Trump as a character, darn it!
  • We will accept for consideration stories in most any genre. We like stories told well, with openings that draw the reader in, and endings that make the reader sit back and say, ‘yes, that’s how this story should end’.
  • We will not be accepting erotica, no matter how well written. Nor will we accept ultra violent stories.

We are expecting to select between twelve and twenty-four stories, with a total length of around eighty thousand words for the full volume. Authors will share equally in fifty percent of the royalties. Authors will also receive a paperback copy.

Distribution of paperbacks will be POD via CreateSpace (Amazon) and Ingram/Spark. Ebook editions will be available for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.

Please follow standard manuscript formatting. Here are some tips.

Guidelines are available here. When ready, send your submission to: [email protected].
