Subscribers to the Dark Chapter Press (yes, DCP is my baby, so I’m on about it again) newsletter Dark Deeds were this evening treated to an early-bird look at September’s writing competition image.
This gives the subscribing writers at least a week’s headstart on the competition. Why would that matter? You may well ask. Well, this year, Dark Chapter Press have offered a fantastic prize. Winners and notable entry writers in these competitions will be invited to a secret submission call, with a view to being included in a Dark Chapter Press anthology release next summer.
My story Home, Sweet Home features in Kill For A Copy by Dark Chapter Press and judging by this review, writers are crazy if they want to miss an opportunity like this.
Let’s not even mention the fact that the flash fiction story itself can wind up in another anthology, so that’s technically two publishing opportunities in one.
Stuart Keane and David Basnett, now editors on anthologies for this horror press, both won competitions last year and both featured in Kill For A Copy with me. Erica Chin and Douglas F. Dluzen are two other winners from the last round of the flash fiction competitions who are about to join the ranks of authors published in the Dark Chapter Dungeon, when the Kids Vol.1 and 2 anthologies are released.
Want my advice?
If you’re a horror or dark fiction writer, this is one of the easiest ways to get your foot in the door with a growing, exciting new publisher. Get across to their website, use the form on their homepage to subscribe to the Dark Deeds newsletter, and get involved. You have nothing at all to lose and potentially, a career as a published horror writer to gain…
Can’t believe you’re still here!…
