Short horror stories for a new imprint from East of the Web
We're seeking short horror stories, small but perfectly formed dark fiction. We want stories with strong plots and compelling characters which strike fear into the heart of their readers. We're interested in the full range of horror, from ghosts stories to tales of psychological torment - as long as it's terrifying, we're interested.
We pay for selected stories starting at $0.05 per word or a mix of an advance and a royalty. Stories should be at least 7,000 words. Stories will be published under a new electronic imprint from East of the Web, one of the world's leading publishers of short stories.
We encourage the submission of previously published as well as new stories. If you're looking for a way to make some money from your back catalogue or to get those stories in front of new readers, we would like to hear from you.
By focusing on quality, eastoftheweb.com has become one of the top destinations on the web for short stories, with over half a million unique visitors a month. Our mobile app 'Short Stories eReader' has been installed on over 100,000 mobile devices. With over a decade of experience in electronic publishing, we have the reach and the reputation to be the perfect partner for your short stories.
Please initially contact us using the form below, which has two parts.
Firstly, we'd like to know a bit about you and your publication history. It doesn't have to be comprehensive, just enough to introduce yourself. Please note that, for this call, we are looking for authors with at least some publication history. If you are a new author, we would love to hear from you in our general submissions. If you have any questions, feel free to include them here also.
Secondly, we'd like to hear about the story or stories you're thinking of submitting. We don't want a full summary, just a brief, descriptive introduction to the story or stories.
We will contact you by email within two weeks. Please ensure your email address is correct.
Thank you for your interest in East of the Web and we look forward to hearing from you!
