The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

For our first ever horror anthology "Love Bites" we seek grisly short stories of love- gone WRONG. Offer us your tales of doomed lovers, toxic relationships, broken hearts and unrequited desires - but remember - your tale must have a supernatural twist or element!


We ask that you avoid submitting stories about vampires and werewolves- We will of course consider a vampire or werewolf story but keep in mind you'll have to make it extra compelling for us to accept it.
