Horror Short Story Submissions

Have done quite a bit of submitting this month. It's still a year's time until the release of my first Red Room books, so I have plenty of time to do other bits of fiction. It's good to "pad the resume" so to speak and doing short stories keeps me sharp.

Also, I love these premises.

1#: Blackguard: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues

My Submission: "The Clockwork King" a short story about a vampire and his wererat lover planning to rip-off the richest man in an Alternate History steampunk London.

2# The Ghost Papers

My Submission: "The Ghost of Bruce Lee" An agent for the United States Paranormal Investigation Division goes to Hong Kong to avenge a martial arts students' murder. His killer, though, has been dead for centuries.

3# Monster Hunter: Revolver

My Submission: "Why Did We Hunt It In An Old Summer Camp?" A lengthy chase sequence as the Jersey Devil turns the tables on a bunch of United States Paranormal Investigation Division agents.

4# At Hell's Gates Anthology 2#

My Submission: "Cookies for the Gentleman." A man is besieged by a mysterious force that is seemingly all-powerful. At Hell's Gates is a charitable anthology with all proceeds going to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

With any luck, I'll be accepted to all four.

5# Monster Hunter: Wasteland

My Submission: "The Meek Shall Inherit." After demons take over the Earth, a diabetic man and his wife struggle against a cult which thinks they're too weak to survive.

Thanks for reading folks!
