The Nitty Gritty

  • Send your story as a .doc,¬†or .docx file to submissions@bloodintherain.com, with SUBMISSION and the story title in your subject line (for example, SUBMISSION: My Sexy Vampire Story).

  • Use traditional manuscript format for your story. If you don’t know what that is, see this handy guide. And for the love of the gods, proofread before sending.

  • Give us a short cover note, ideally with an author bio.

  • Let us know if your story’s a reprint. We might take the perfect reprint, but original work is preferred.

  • Send as many submissions as you want, but we’re not likely to pick more than one story from any writer.

  • We’re buying first North American serial rights, first North American audio publishing rights, first world online rights, and archival rights (that is, to potentially archive your story on our website).

  • Update: Stories are due May 15, 2017.
