Submissions Guidelines for Short Stories


Short story submissions are open!


I am delighted to receive submissions in horror, fantasy, science fiction, murder mysteries. Please familiarise yourself with the kind of books I review as a guide to the kind of stories I would like to see. The most common reason for my declining a story is that it isn't a good fit for the blog. I am keen to be able to increase my acceptance rate.


An ideal length would be between 1,000 and 2,000 words.


Submissions should be made in the body of an email to the address above.


Please include your Twitter handle and FB author page, and also provide a brief description of your writing experience and previous publications in your email.


I don’t mind simultaneous submissions, but please let me know if your story is accepted elsewhere.


Your story cannot have been previously published (including online) and you must confirm that it is wholly your own work and that you agree to give first publication rights for 90 days from the date of publication.


As this is a new feature, I do not offer payment at this time for stories submitted.
