Howdy! I just wanted to let everyone know that Turn to Ash Vol. 2: Open Lines is nearly complete. I’m just waiting on a couple of author bios and making a couple of small layout tweaks, and then it will be done. I’m not sure exactly how bad the holidays are going to screw up the wait/delivery times at the printer, but all the pre-orders should be shipping either in the last couple of days of December or the first couple of days of January. There’s still time to put in a pre-order and get a personalized letter of termination from the bigwigs at WORN and some other goodies, so ACT NOW.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about submissions, so I updated the submissions page on the site. I’ll also paste that information below…
Turn to Ash is closed to submissions right now. We are busy finishing up Vol. 2, and will be open for submissions to Vol. 3 from mid-January to the end of February, 2017. This will be a general horror fiction volume with no theme. Vol. 3 will be released in early Spring 2017. Original fiction is preferred, but reprints will be considered, particularly if they are out of print and hard to find. No minimum word count. A flexible 7.5K word max. Pay will be 1 cent a word, with no payment less than $35 USD. 6 months print and digital exclusive rights, non-exclusive rights after that. Please no simultaneous submissions or multiple submissions.
More detailed guidelines will be posted when we are open to subs. Please do not send anything right now. We’re too busy, and we’ll probably lose it. An email account will be set up for submissions to Vol. 3, and that address will be given out when subs are open. Please don’t send any submissions to the general Turn to Ash email address. Any unsolicited subs sent there will be deleted unread.
