Limitless Publishing is accepting story proposals for the horror and dark fiction anthology 13: Carnival of Fear. Completed stories should be 10,000 words (7,500 minimum, 12,000 maximum, with 10,000 as the ideal length).
We are looking for original, dark, delightfully disturbed stories ranging from classic horror to dark, urban fantasy style. In keeping with the theme, the story should feature elements involving a circus, carnival, traveling show, or amusement park. Whether it’s a spectral show that appears as an omen of darkness to come, a monster hiding in plain sight in a seemingly innocent family venue, or a band of traveling performers with an evil agenda, it’s something that will inspire nightmares.
Interested authors should submit the following in a single Word document:
· A description of your planned story, not to exceed 500 words, including the premise, key plot points, and resolution of the story (Please do not send the full story yet, if it is complete)
· Author’s recent publishing history
· Author’s current social media links
DEADLINE to submit the story proposals is NOVEMBER 10, 2017.
Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors will be notified on or about November 15 if their story has been selected.
Authors will then have until JANUARY 7 to send their completed, edit-ready story.
Tentative release date is planned for APRIL 10, 2018.
Please email email@example.com for more information.
