Are you a horror writer interested in writing for a cause? Well then I would love to invite you to come up with a terrifying tale for the upcoming horror anthology "Rhonny Reaper's Creature Features"! This anthology is being put together by both myself and fellow author Cal Miller (Het Madden: A Zombie Perspective and The Undead Nation Anthology) and $1 from every book sold will be donated to Diabetes Research!

What we want:
We are looking for horror stories of all kinds! Monsters, killers, cannibals, demons, zombies, whatever you can come up with! We want to create an anthology with a diverse selection of tales. Be as gory, spooky, violent, bloody, or strange as you want, just be original! Stories should be between 3,000 and 10,000 words. Reprints are fine as long as you have the rights to your story. The only stipulation is no strong sexual violence in the stories!

What rights do we want?
All we need is the right to use the story for as long as there is demand for the book and the right to use parts of the book and the author's name for promotion. You will keep all other rights and can republish the story anytime you choose.

What you get:
All authors will receive a copy of the book as payment.

How your stories should be sent:
All entries MUST be a .doc file
Title, Author's Name, Word Count, and Author's Email must be on the first page

Can it be a blend of horror and comedy? Not that I'm good at either or anything. Just curious haha.

Well if the story is entertaining and is still scary as well as funny, I can consider it ;)

I've got several that I started for the Undead that saved Christmas that I didn't feel were quite right. I can probably work on one of those.
The Christmas/Undead theme was a hard one for me, believe it or not. I didn't know how to do it without making it completely ridiculous. I finished one at about 4:00 today and sent it in. So my mind is pretty well toast at the moment, but I'm sure I'll have something for ya by Halloween!
