Darq Deviant Press

After much debate and planning, I've decided to start up my own indie publishing house. The name of it is Darq Deviant Press, and we're seeking submissions for our launch anthology! Here are the details, and you can follow us on facebook or just check everything out on the website! Come and see how we're going to shake the foundations of independent publishing.


"Bitter Blackout" Anthology: compiled and edited by R.A. Sears

Despair. Desolation. Haunting echoes through a midnight forest glen on a moonless night. A glimpse of an impossible beauty disappearing into the snow.

Mix and combine any of the main genres we accept (paranormal, urban fantasy, science fiction, horror), as well as adding splashes of others if that strikes your fancy.

~No limit to gore and language, if erotica: please mention so in your description blurb.
~Word count: 3k-10k for stories, poetry is at our discretion (mainly 1-2 pages).
~Please be sure to self edit/have someone beta read your piece before submission. Also, follow our formatting guidelines to expedite the publishing process. No previously published works will be considered.
~Each individual may submit 2 stories and/or 3 poems to be considered. More submissions do not guarantee inclusion in the anthology.
~As most anthologies are for exposure purposes for new authors, there will be no royalties paid for submissions to this anthology, as a contract will state if your piece is chosen.
~Send your submissions as a .doc or .docx attachment (send multiple submissions as individual attachments)with the subject "Bitter Blackout Submission" along with your name and the title of the piece(s). In the body of the email, please include the biography information requested in our guidelines.
DEADLINE: November 30th, 2012 for December 20th, 2012 publication. Pre-holiday, this will be eBook only, but we may do a print run of it post holiday if demand is high enough.
