Call for Submissions: Shadow People and Cursed Objects

cmroch-72dpi-1500x2000(5)We’re really excited to announce that submissions are now OPEN for an anthology we tried to launch last year but…well. We didn’t get it going.

However, this year we’re ready to go!

(Are you digging the cover? We totally are! Check out what we have to say about it’s optical illusion in our Forum.)

Ok, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty…


  • 13 fiction stories about ghosts/shadow people or haunted objects. (As long as your story contains one or the other, we want to read it!)
  • We’re open to any genre of fiction. Your story doesn’t have to be horror. It can be a paranormal romance, literary, humor. (Although, we’re not going to lie. We love horror. But we’re looking for the very best stories about ghosts and/or haunted objects that we can find.)
  • It must, however, involve either a ghost or a haunted object. (We can’t reiterate this enough.)
  • Word limit: 5,000


Our anthology is going to be a little different. We want readers to participate by trying to figure out if your tale of a ghost/shadow person or haunted object is based on a true story or not.

The print version will have a section at the back detailing whether the author based their tale on a true story…or if they culled it purely from their imagination.

The ebook version will have a link back to our site with the answer.

Your story does not have to be based on a true story.

If it is based on a true story, we’ll need you to supply the details. (You don’t have to send it with your submission, though. We can get this info later if your story is accepted. We want to try and guess whether it’s based on a true story or not. We’re not gonna lie. We’ll cheat if you supply it ahead of time.)



Authors will receive $50 upon acceptance for Non-Exclusive Rights, plus 10 print copies upon publication.


Submissions accepted until July 31, 2015.


There is a submission form on our Anthologies page. (At the end. After the FAQs.)


If you’re a writer, submit! If you’re not but know one who may be interested, let them know. If you’re none of the above…why are you reading this? (Ha!)

Seriously though, we feel it in our bones we’re going to receive some amazing submissions for this. We’re really looking forward to the selection process!
