How About a Two-fer?

Don’t you just love a Two-fer—two treats for the price of one? As it happens, your click to my blog has afforded you the coveted Two-fer. Below are links to a pair of happy places:
1. Cathy C’s Hall of Fame is offering a wonderful contest, free to enter. One lucky NEW follower to Cathy’s blog will win a $20.00 gift card from Barnes and Noble. But here’s the part I really love: Let Cathy know I sent you and if you win, so will I! Now that’s what I call a real Two-fer.
2. Love the ooky and the spooky? Link to Darkside Digital, a publisher of all things horror. This caught my interest because of the wide word count range in which they are interested (from 2,000-40,000, original horror fiction only). Here’s part of the official blurb from their website:
Darkside Digital is now accepting submissions. We have teamed up with Delirium Books to offer both digital and print contracts to authors who submit work from 15K words to 40K words. For submissions less than 15K we will consider them for only a Darkside Digital release as an e-book.
Did I mention this is a paying market? 25% royalties off the cover price paid quarterly via Paypal by their parent company Horror Mall, who also pay the Paypal fees. If you love to write about things that go bump in the night, this may be the place for you!
So there you have it, buttercup, your Wednesday Two-fer. First, zip on over to Cathy’s blog to enter her nifty contest, and then visit Darkside Digital to read their complete submission guidelines and submit your best scary stuff. Good luck in both places!
Til next time –
