Read the submission guidelines fully—pretty please and thank you.
There are two open QUERY reading periods early 2014:
Jan 1-Mar 31: Linked novella trilogies. Dark speculative fiction/horror/urban fantasy. NO zombies.
Mar 1-May 30: Non-fiction book on writing in the internet age.
We’re starting with queries because the Creative Director, Jennifer Brozek, thinks she knows what she wants but is happy to be surprised by the unexpected (within the submission guidelines). Jennifer likes her horror subtle, creepy, and suspenseful. No splatterpunk. She likes her dark urban fantasy to make her believe it is happening around her when she walks out her front door and doesn’t realize it. No zombies. Seriously. No zombies.
Also, Apocalypse Ink Productions will be at Convolution in November. If you have any questions, feel free to ask Jennifer there.
