Call for Submissions! Betty Bites Back: Horror Stories for Young Feminists

A few years ago I was involved with a self-published anthology titled AMONG THE SHADOWS. The project was spear headed by Demitria Lunetta (author of IN THE AFTER series, and BAD BLOOD), Kate Karyus Quinn (my first guest on the podcast and author of ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE and DOWN WITH THE SHINE). We put together a successful kickstarter campaign to launch the collection, and brought on ten other authors to fill out the work.

We loved working with our amazing authors; Gretchen McNeil, Justina Ireland, Phoebe North, Geoffrey Girard, Lydia Kang, Rachel Lewis, Joelle Charbonneau, Lenore Appelhans Eisenhour, and Beth Revis.

Now, we're at it again! This time the theme is dark and feminist...and we're sending out a call for submissions.

*Please note that subject matter should be 16+, though there is no restriction on the age of the protagonist.*

1) Must feature a female (or female-identifying) character.

2) Unpublished authors are welcome to submit.

3) All lengths welcome! Stories should be copied into the body of the email. Include a short bio with previous works and submission word count.

4) We are actively seeking writers of color, #OwnVoices stories, LGBTQ and differently-abled submissions.

5) Submit to Subject line should include Title and Author Names. Submission Deadline May 11, 2018.

THE FINE PRINT: This is an unpaid collection and will be funded by a kickstarter campaign. Authors retain all the rights to their stories. Five author copies will be provided to each contributor, as well as other promotional materials, such as bookmarks and postcards. As with AMONG THE SHADOWS, BETTY BITES BACK will be priced for maximum exposure. We want to move copies! All profits will be put back into advertising. Please check out our previous short story collection AMONG THE SHADOWS. We would be happy to provide you with a complimentary ebook copy!
