May December Publications was started by Denise Brown in 2009 out of her belief in her husband’s writings. Seeing that writing is an integral part of who he is she knew that he had to be published. After doing research, she saw that there were so many others feeling the same way. She recruited her son Andrew Maxwell and his company Heka Interactive and her daughter in law Whitney Maxwell to build a website, create the company logo and information and design the cover to Zomblog. Everything started coming together, so May December Publications became a LLC in December of 2009 and Zomblog was published.

Now, they’re looking for material for three anthologies and more.

THE GHOSTS OF DC

Welcome to the second anthology from The Horror Society.

Since this is an election year it might be interesting to publish a horror anthology about politicians. Throughout history many of our political figures have suffered painful events or tragic deaths.

What they are looking for is stories that twist this event – i.e. What if the doctors that treated George Washington were vampires, or the reason it took so long to bury Abraham Lincoln was because he kept wandering off. Don’t change history but feel free to play it.

Have fun while researching your politician. You will need to make your selection and contact May/December before you start writing. The reason for this is that you will need to reserve your choice to avoid multiple submissions on the President or the politician. They are looking for a wide assortment of figures for this publication.

There will be No political opinions allowed! They don’t care what political affiliation you are. This is about the horror not politics.

4000-10,000 words. No less, and no more. No living politicians will be allowed. Message Denise Brown with selection, they will make a daily post (and keep it updated) of which concepts have been selected to avoid duplication. Please email: submissions@maydecemberpublications.com Payment is $25 upon publication with quarterly payments after advance has been met. Times New Roman. Size 12 font. Single Space. First line indent by .3; All stories will be stripped of author info and forwarded blind to editor who will score each story. Top (seeking a total word count of 70,000 words) will be accepted.

All submissions are due August 31, 2012
