Call For Submissions: Re-Haunt
 

Pole to Pole Publishing is seeking short, re-print fiction for the Re-Haunt anthology to be published in late 2019.  Re-Haunt will join our previous submission calls (now closed) for Re-Launch, Re-Enchant, Re-Quest and Re-Terrify in the Re-Imagined Series of anthologies. Re-Haunt requires dark stories about ghosts and hauntings.

Payment:
Payment is $10 per story, paid on acceptance  (contract must be signed), via PayPal only; plus, one electronic and one print copy of the antho.  (If you do not have a PayPal account, please do not submit your work.)

Right Purchased:
 – The non-exclusive right to collect the stories into an anthology, published in 2019 and sold thereafter. Re-Haunt may be included in book bundles with the other books in the series.
 – The non-exclusive right to publish the story to the new Pole to  Pole Publishing Patreon blog (for patron’s eyes only).

General:
Stories should be 3,000-5,000 words and meet  the central theme of the anthology. Reprints currently available on line  are not eligible. Preference is for stories that haven’t been published in at least a year.  Older reprints will carry more weight than new  ones.  Author must possess the right to offer the story for submission.

Hard Sells:
Profane and vulgar language — because we market to both adult and YA  readers. If we are interested in your story, we may ask you to edit  profane and vulgar language as a condition of publication.

First Person and Present Tense. We’ve published both: when the  stories were very, very good. We want to let you know up front that  we’re going to reject this most of the time. It’s just not our  preference.

Excessive Gore and/or violence. Blood and guts are fine—as long as they’re part of the story and not the story itself.

 Sex. See above about marketing to a wider audience.

What We Don’t Want:
No rape, torture, etc. of children. No animal abuse. No stories with  characters from a copyrighted world that belongs to someone else.  No Poetry. Only one story from each author will be considered.

Formatting:
No tabs. Please format the document with a first line indent.
Curly quotes, please—no straight quotes.


If you’re not sure if your story is suitable, don’t query; just go ahead and submit and let our editors decide.

Deadline: July 30, 2019 or until filled. Be aware that all of  our anthologies have filled before the deadline, so please don’t wait  until the last minute to submit.

Call for Submissions for the “Not Far From Roswell” Anthology


Not Far From Roswell 


(Working Cover. Fonts/colors subject to change.)                    


Pole to Pole Publishing is seeking short, original fiction for its upcoming anthology, Not Far from Roswell,  to be published October 2019. 

Not Far From Roswell will contain dark stories of aliens, alien abduction, alien experimentation, cows, paranormal investigation and more -- let your imagination be your guide.  We may also include one or two humorous pieces as long as the material is dark.

Stories should be 3,000-5,000 words (firm). 

Hard Sells:

Profane and vulgar language. Because we market to both adult and YA  readers, if you use an F-Bomb, and we accept your story, we’ll probably ask you to change it.

First person and Present Tense. We’ve published both: when the  stories were very, very good. We want to let you know up front that we’re going to reject this most of the time. It’s just not our preference.

Excessive Gore and/or violence. Blood and guts are fine—as long as they’re part of the story and not the story itself.

Sex. See above about marketing to a wider audience.

Edition and Rights:

Not Far From Roswell will be published in electronic and trade paperback in English. We are asking for exclusive, worldwide rights to your work for both electronic and print for six months only, and a  non-exclusive right to keep your story in the anthology after that. The anthology may be included with other "Dark Stories Anthologies" in bundles.

Payment:  Payment is 2¢ per word, paid at publication, via PayPal only.

If you do not have a PayPal account, please do not submit your work.

Authors will also receive one copy of both the electronic and  paperback versions of the anthology. (Authors can buy additional books  at a discount.)

What We Don’t Want:

No rape, torture, etc. of children. No animal abuse. No stories with  characters from a copyrighted world that belongs to someone else.  No reprints. No Poetry.  Only one story from each author will be considered.


Formatting:

No tabs. Please format the document with a first line indent.

Curly quotes, please—no straight quotes.


If you’re not sure if your story is suitable, don’t query; just go ahead and submit, and let our editors decide.


Deadline: July 30, 2019, or until filled. Be aware that all of our anthologies have filled before the deadline, so don’t wait until the last  minute to submit.
