Flash Fiction Horror Anthology
« on: February 03, 2011, 07:58:01 AM »
Frightmares is a new flash fiction horror anthology that is currently open for submissions. Stories must be in the horror genre and no longer than 500 words.

It's free to submit a story. All successful authors will receive a PDF of the anthology, and there are also prizes of $100, $50, $25 and $15 for the best four stories, plus a random drawing of $50 for one other. All authors retain the copyright in their stories.

The publishers, Dark Moon Books, estimate a release date of Fall 2011, which means a closing date of approximately July 2011, the exact date depending on the quality and quantity of submissions received.

For more info including how to submit work, visit http://horrorwritingcontest.com/Frightmares Flash Fiction.htm

Good luck!

Nick  :)

Joe's quite a dab hand when it comes to this sort of thing. I could see him doing very well in it.
My debut novel 'Life Eternal' is now available to buy on Amazon in both paperback and kindle.

Please search 'Aaron J Booth' on Amazon to find the product.

I haven't been successful in writing horror, but I do enjoy reading it.  I need a good challenge, so I am going to submit to Frightmares Anthology. 

Good luck everyone,

That's great. Can't wait to read your story. And see the cover. They always have excellent covers.
