Dark Romance & Horror
Deadline: September 30, 2011 (or until full)
Target release date: November 1, 2011
What Rainstorm Press are looking for:

Stories that take place before, during, or after weddings, where one of the newlyweds dies. Think of Guns n’ Roses’ November Rain. Or write a story about marrying a serial killer. Stories where the deceased comes back from the dead will also be considerd, but must not be a typical zombie story.

Stories must be 3,000 – 7,500 words in length, but will consider shorter or longer stories if well written and entertaining.


For stories 3,999 words or below, the author will receive EXPOSURE ONLY but will be able to purchase ONE copy of the book at 40% off the price.

For stories 4,000 or above, the author will receive ONE CONTRIBUTOR COPY upon publication.


We ask for first world print rights, in paperback and digital format, for the first year. After that time, the author may shop the work to other markets, but the work will remain in the anthology as long as there is a demand for it. No re-prints will be accepted.

How to submit:

Send submissions to with “With This Ring Submission (story title and author name)” in subject line. Please attach a word document file containing your story. Please use font Time New Roman, size 12 and please DO NOT double space or use headers or page counts. Page one of the file must contain your contact information (name, mailing address, E-mail and word count) If any of these items are missing from your document, we will reject without reading. If this information is there, it makes it easier for me to contact you.
