SCARLET GALLEON PUBLICATIONS is an independently owned and operated micro publisher specializing in horror, suspense, and mystery fiction. It is our mission here at SGP, to publish the highest quality genre fiction possible.
To that end, Scarlet Galleon Publications is NOW OPEN for short story submissions for our inaugural publishing effort: an anthology of horror and dark fiction stories titled DEAD HARVEST - A Collection of Dark Tales, which will be published in the 'season of harvest,' September (2014).
We are leaving this premier anthology open-concept in terms of story content and theme, however (given the title), we would naturally be very excited to receive stories with an 'autumnal,' 'harvest,' or 'agricultural' feel to them. This is by no means a mandate or requirement for consideration. Please note, however, we are not looking for Halloween-themed stories, as this anthology is set a bit earlier on the calendar. In a way, we are looking for DEAD HARVEST to be a nice 'lead in' to that time of year so many of us love . . . and anxiously wait for . . . Hallow's Eve or Halloween.
We ask those interested in being a DEAD HARVEST contributor, to please visit our submissions page here on our website for details and guidelines around the Scarlet Galleon Publications submission process.
Hopefully this teaser image will give you a taste of what we're looking for, and put you in the mood to write a dark, chilling tale to be considered for our premier anthology. Just think: brittle autumn leaves crunching underfoot . . . the smell of wood-burning stoves lacing the brisk evening air with inviting aromas . . . and long shadows causing your hearts, and pace, to quicken, as you race to get indoors . . . where things are warm and safe.
