We are currently accepting submissions for our first anthology, FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE, a collection of ghost stories.
FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE Submission GuidelinesDeath is not the end. Tortured souls, vengeful spirits, doomed to walk the earth for all time. We’re looking tales of ghostly encounters. Haunted houses, spiritual possession, spirits hell-bent on revenge. Creepy, atmospheric tales that will have us afraid to turn off the lights and leave us jumping at every sound. Scare the crap out of us, but don’t gross us out (well, that’s okay, too, but excessive gore should not be gratuitous). Erotic content is acceptable as well, but keep in mind the SCARE FACTOR is the important thing here, and absolutely NO sexual content involving children.FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE will be a “digital first” publication, with a trade paperback to follow.
