RELEASE: Wicked Deeds: Witches, Warlocks, Demons, & Other Evil Doers | #Horror #Anthology

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce the release of its newest anthology…

Wicked Deeds:

Witches, Warlocks, Demons, & Other Evil Doers

WD_WWDED_Final_FrontCover.pngSometimes wicked people do wicked things simply because they can…

The twelve stories in Wicked Deeds tell tales of witches and warlocks with ill intent, devilish demons bent on destruction, and other doers of evil who make the world a terrifying place. What is a mother to do when her daughter is gifted but lives under the thumb of her fanatical preacher husband who will brook no talk of the supernatural? What of a demon so desperate to free himself of a trap that he will force another to repeat his atrocities and condemn a young boy to his demonic fate? Or maybe the story of a crotchety old witch with a score to settle against the town she lives in is more to your liking – what evil will the seemingly harmless town-crazy call upon when faced with an ultimatum?

If you’re looking for wicked people with supernatural abilities doing wicked things, this is the collection for you!

RELEASE: Monster Brawl! | #Horror #Anthology

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce the release of its newest anthology…

Monster Brawl!

MonsterBrawl_FrontCover_FinalIt’s time to let the monsters loose!

For this book, we collected stories of monsters doing epic battle with other monsters! The beasts could be classical by design with a unique twist, or they could be spawned straight from the author’s imagination. The only rule: there must be a clear-cut winner at the end of each story; one of the creatures had to die!

Some of the stories in this collection pit a single monster against another, while others are all-out gang warfare. Some are campy, some serious, but all a fight for the ages!

It’s time to get your game face on for twelve tales worthy of the title Monster Brawl!

**No monsters were hurt in the writing of these stories**

*This book is a collection of similarly themed yet varying fictitious short stories from multiple authors.

Market Forces — Ben Howels

The Imp, the Gadfly, and the Hourglass — Joshua Skye

The Matriarch — Mya Lairis

Monster Milk — Hunter Shea

To Fight By the Light of the Silvery Moon — Scott Harper

Vices — Sergio Pereira

OPEN SUBMISSIONS: Mental Ward: Stories from the Asylum – Volume 2 | #Horror #Asylum

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce its newest anthology open call!

MentalAsylumWe loved our first Mental Ward: Stories from the Asylum call so much, we’re opening another for Volume 2 with the exact same details! Have at it wordsmiths, and send us true depravity to read!

Sanatorium, mental ward, psychiatric hospital – they’re all the same. Places where the infirm, the crazy, and the certifiable go for treatment… Or what passes for ‘treatment’.

We want stories of bedlam taking place within the padded walls of an institution. Give us stories of experiments gone wrong, patients revolting against the staff, or tales from the perspective of those charged with offering care. Make them sick, make them depraved, make them atrocious – these should be the kind of stories that rarely reach the light of day.

Are you brave enough to see what your mind conjures up… Or are you afraid you’ll be locked up for trying?

Deadline: July 31, 2017

Word Count: 4,000 – 8,000 words

All submissions MUST be submitted to: Submissions@SirensCallPublications.com

Reading & Evaluation Period: Two to three months after close of the deadline

** NO REPRINTS WILL BE CONSIDERED **

Payment: Each story selected for inclusion will receive a one-time payment of $25US, plus one print copy of the book.

As per our standard guidelines, there will be no stories containing pedophilia, bestiality, or graphic rape scenarios accepted.

Full submission guidelines can be found on our website – www.SirensCallPublications.com – we invite you to read them before submitting!
