BEWERE THE NIGHT update 2

I've responded to all subs sent before September 10th. If you sent a submission before that date, you should've received either a rejection or a hold request; if you haven't received a response, please query.

Try to get your stories to me before December 1st -- I will be accepting subs until Dec 31st, but since I'll be making most of my selections in December, there's a pretty good chance that the antho will fill up before the deadline. Stragglers beware.

Finally, I'm getting way too many werewolves and not enough other creatures. At this point, wolves are a very very tough sell. As well as Little Red Riding Hood retellings. As well as "victim turns the table" stories. Oh, and bantering paranormal investigators, if they do banter, should be at least amusing.

Will you accept multiple submissions?

Please send your subs one at a time.

I'm hoping my werejaguar's tale isn't near enough any of those themes to cause problems. No paranormal investigators and a jaguar is a fair distance from a wolf, so... I can hope.

Should a submission be very very formal? Most of what I've done is self-published online, so I'm wondering if I need to take a crash course in formal publication submissions, or if a quick blurb and an attached .ODT (or .RTF, I can do that easily) would suffice.

The only thing that really matters is how good your story is -- tropes are a minor part of it. Attached file is all I need.

Apologies, but I have looked high and low for your e-mail where I might submit my story and cannot locate it anywhere. I also tried the contact form on your web site, but it wasn't working. Please let me know where I can submit the story. If you'd rather, you can e-mail me at hernandez111 -AT- hotmail -DOT- com. Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience!

I'm working on a were story that I'm pretty excited about and may be a contender, but won't be submitted until a couple of days before the end of the year. If the antho's filled up before then, c'est la vie, but I'm taking the deadline at face value.
