Delicious Malicious is intended to be a series. All 100 authors accepted will automatically be invited to submit additional stories for “Delicious Malicious 2: Another 100 Tales of Horror”, “Delicious Malicious 3: 100 Tales of Horror”, etc. Each author will then receive their royalty share every six months for each book in the series, cumulatively perpetually. The goal will be to have each book in the series feature each of the same authors in exactly the same order. The goal is to initiate an ongoing series which will gain a very large following and extend over many years.
If you’re a budding horror author, or even if your an old pro with numerous bestsellers on your resume, you may be interested in sending a short story to Goodreads. Details from their website are below:
