Summer 2020

For the 50th issue of The Sirens Call eZine, we’re looking for short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry of horror or dark fiction – extra points for pieces that reflect the theme of summer, but it’s not required.

We have a few taboos listed below, other than that, as long as you write a quality piece, feel free to submit it.

Short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry are acceptable provided they fit the theme within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Be creative, be morbid, be vicious and show us what you’ve got. If it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of about 35,000!

RELEASE: Identity by Anthony Avina | #Horror #DarkFiction @Sirens_Call @AuthorAAvina

Sirens Call Publications is pleased to announce its latest release…

Identity 

Anthony Avina

Screenshot_20200306-084043_Chrome

A story of love, loss and looking beyond the surface to find the real person underneath, readers will be on the edge of their seat as they try to learn a killer’s true…identity.

A missing son. An investigator desperate for answers. A city filled with untold danger.

Former detective turned private investigator Nathan Hawkes thought he’d left his life of danger behind until an old friend approaches and asks for help finding his missing son. Not one to refuse a friend in need, Nathan finds himself caught in the middle of a dangerous game of cat and mouse that lurks underneath the glamor and pretty lights of Los Angeles where a dark criminal underworld hides in the shadows. As he looks to an old flame for help, the people Nathan cares about find themselves in the crosshairs of a demented killer, and he must push himself to the brink to stop the madness before it’s too late.

Will Nathan find the killer in time, or will their twisted appetite and fame protect their Identity?

Identity is currently available on:

Amazon: US | UK | Canada | Australia | Germany | France | Spain | Italy | Japan | Mexico | Brazil | India | The Netherlands

(more venues to follow in both digital and print!)

ABOUT THE AUTHORAnthony Avina was born in Fontana, CA. Growing up in Southern California, Anthony grew up with a love and passion for the horror genre. From the first time he watched the film Trilogy of Terror, he found himself drawn into the spine-chilling tales of Stephen King. Anthony knew he had a voice that needed to be heard, and so he dedicated himself to writing. He has gone on to be a two-time National Novel Writing Month winner, and has several short stories that have earned recognition on sites like Wattpad and periodicals like The Siren’s Call eZine. Living in California with his Yorkie Sammy and his two black cats Batman and Robin, Anthony works to bring untold tales of heart-pounding terror to light, and explore the way good and everyday people can overcome great horrors.

When he’s not writing Anthony is working daily as a freelance writer for several online publications. He also has a successful book blog and a YouTube channel called Avina Vlogs, where he publishes video reviews and films his journey to becoming an author. He is the author of several acclaimed books, including the novel I Was an Evil Teenager: Remastered and the series Nightmare Wars.

eZine_Submission_Image

For the 48th issue of The Sirens Call, not only would we like you to write about a token that is reminiscent of death, but remember that death itself may lay around every corner. We’d like you to pay tribute to it in the most heinous ways possible by submitting pieces that honor it, horrify with it, respect it, and/or fight it to the bitter end; and we do mean the literal bitter end as each piece selected for eZine 48 must contain a death – mortal or otherwise.

Short stories, flash fiction, drabbles, and poetry are acceptable provided they fit the theme within the horror/dark fiction genre. We welcome reprints as long as you hold the copyright to the piece.

Your piece can be scary, sullen, emotive, freaky, elegant, bizarre, have a dark-humor edge to it, or be flat out creepy as hell!

The basic rules:

  • Write the piece well.
  • It must be primarily horror/dark fiction oriented and involve a death.
  • Don’t break our set-in-stone taboos – NO pedophilia, NO bestiality, and NO descriptive rape scenarios.

Be creative, be morbid, be vicious and show us what you’ve got. If it fits our criteria, we’ll offer it up to our readership of about 35,000!
