Busy and Business

I’ve been very dull lately. :hemi:

Here’s what you’ve missed: work, sleep, work work, sleep, work work work, sleep, get the flu (again), sleep sleep, work work work work… That kind of thing.

I am, however, over on the Romantic Suspense Blog today, where I share a list sent to me by one of my beloved (and overworked) Line Editors.

And while I’m here, I’ve an Open Call For Submissions to announce:


Scare us. We dare you.

We’re planning two anthologies featuring classic ghost story themes. Be they dark, steamy, humorous, sentimental or downright creepy, we want your ghost stories.

Tip Sheet:

  • Suggested submission length: 20-25k
  • Romantic elements preferred, but not required for either holiday-themed anthology.
  • Holiday (Halloween or Christmas) theme preferred, but not necessarily required. If the story’s compelling enough, we won’t discriminate.
  • Meta data: Straight-up, good old-fashioned “tales told ‘round the campfire”; folklore and ghost stories; Haunted houses, visitations, Dickens; Legends (but not necessarily myths); Rather more “Things that go bump in the night” than “Things that hump in the night”.
  • Be sure you edit very carefully before submitting. (I’m not horribly forgiving, I’m finding)
  • All submissions should be sent to: submissions AT lyricalpress DOT com, SUBJECT: Ghost Story
  • See below for submission deadlines:

Release Date: October 20, 2008
Submission Deadline: June 1, 2008
Genre: Paranormal
Sensuality Level: Any

Release Date: December 15, 2008
Submission Deadline: June 15, 2008
Genre: Paranormal
Sensuality Level: Any

Any questions, fire away here on the blog, or send them to editor AT lyricalpress DOT com. I’ll do my best to answer as soon as possible.

Have a good weekend.
