Ghostwoods Books

Posted by Randi on Sunday, June 8, 2014

What they want:
Ghostwoods Books would like to see new and interesting dark fiction novels or cleverly interlinked short stories. Dark fantasy, gothic fiction, dark historical, creepy (but not mindless) horror. No slasher novels, no zombies, probably no YA. Let it be sinister and clever or enchanting yet creepy. 

Examples of books we would have taken for this call: Frankenstein, Dracula, An Interview with the Vampire, The Night Circus, The Throne of Bones. Note that historical novels must be somewhat updated in writing style to accommodate the tastes of modern readers.
 (No lengthy, needless exposition or purple prose.)

Length: 70,000-100,000 words
