The Shadow Over Deathlehem Manuscript Submissions

In case folks were wondering, we are still accepting manuscript submissions for The Shadow Over Deathlehem. You can send your submission to submissions@grinningskullpress.com or grinningskullpress@yahoo.com. For details, please see our Submission Guidelines.

LITTLE MONSTERS IS CANCELLED

As much as we hate to do this, we are pulling the plug on the Little Monsters anthology. We had such high hopes for this collection, but it seems the Twilight phenomena has filtered down to the youngest generation. We had been hoping to receive truly scary stories, things that had kids waking up in the middle of the night screaming out for mommy and daddy, stories that, in their writing, would act like a sort of catharsis for the child. We did receive a couple of chilling stories, stories that surprised us given the age of the author, but sadly those were in the minority (and not nearly enough to fill a short story collection). The majority of the stories were cute, charming pieces that were more suited for Saturday morning cartoons.

Closed to Submissions -- Except DEATHLEHEM REVISITED

We will be closed to all submissions except DEATHLEHEM REVISITED from December 1, 2015 through January 1, 2016 so that we can catch up on the backlog of manuscripts we have received.

HOCKOMOCK Now Open to All Authors

We have opened up submissions to Hockomock to all authors from any location. We STRONGLY ADVISE that your research the area and become familiar with the area known as The Bridgewater Triangle before writing and submitting for this anthology. Any stories that do not show a familiarity with the location will be rejected.
