Let's get liminal.
"Third time's the charm" - or so it's said, and in that spirit Dark Minds Press are pleased to announce that they're open for submissions for their third anthology DARKEST MINDS.
We were extremely pleased with the reception both Dark Minds and Darker Minds received and spurred on by that made the decision to release the third book in the series.
It's been an honour to work with so many talented writers and artists thus far and we're looking forward to more of the same with Darkest Minds.
It's going to be another themed anthology (the precise guidelines are below) but the theme is hopefully general enough that it will stimulate, rather than prescribe to, the collective imaginations of all those submitting.
I'm looking forward to reading the stories and hopefully producing a high quality book that the contributors will be proud to be associated with.
Thanks to everyone who has made the Dark Minds dream a reality, the writers, the artists, the reviewers and everyone who has bought copies of the first two books.
Here's to a dark future...
Dare you cross the line..?
Borders surround us; visible and invisible, physical and metaphysical, natural and supernatural and every day we cross over them.
Sometimes it’s a fine line we cross between one place and the next, between one state of being and another. Love and hate, sanity and insanity, life and death…
Dark Minds Press are looking for submissions of stories between 2,000 and 7,000 words for their next anthology, Darkest Minds, centred loosely on the theme of crossing a border and the transformative effects this brings about. The border may be a physical one, a journey from one place to another or something of a more esoteric nature, the transition from life to death (or undeath…), journeying between parallel realities or states of consciousness…
Send your stories of the liminal along with a short biography, which will appear in the finished book should you be successful, to:
Please send manuscripts via Word attachment, double spaced in 12pt Times or Courier font with italics and bold as you would like them to appear, not underlined please.
Payment will be a flat fee of £10.00 payable via Paypal upon acceptance and one copy of the printed anthology.
The closing date for submissions is October 31st 2013.
