Midnight Before Christmas

Posted by Randi on Monday, March 12, 2018

What they want:
There's no doubt that the Holidays are the most magical time of year, but that doesn't mean dark happenings aren't lurking beneath your Christmas tree as well.

These books will be available on kindle, hardcover, paperback, and audiobook format. The title page of each story will be illustrated. We are looking for holiday related horror, dark sci-fi, dark speculative fiction, neo-noire, and cyberpunk stories. We like stories with Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza themes. Alternatively, they can simply take place during the holidays (like how Die Hard isn't really about Christmas) or even just involve wintery or snowy settings. Please read the general submissions for more details.

A word of advice: If you plan on sending us a Krampus story, please make sure it's a great one! We'll only have room for one in our collection and we're anticipating a lot of submissions so send something original!
Deadline: May 1, 2018
Length: 1,000-10,000 words
Payment: 2 cents per word
