“Single Slices” Submissions Pouring In

If you are a horror writer and you have not yet submitted a piece for our new “Single Slices” digital-first singles line, you need to get it in soon.  The deadline for this first submission period is January 31.

So take out that old novella that you didn’t know what to do with, polish it up — make sure to make it sing! — and send it in.  We’ve received a steady stream of submissions so far, and our reading team is working diligently to give everyone that crucial first read.  Keep in mind that our stated response time is 2 months, so please be patient.

It is awesome to see what all of you creative folks out there have crafted!

Keep them coming… and remember, the deadline is the end of January.

Introducing “Single Slices”!

Cutting Block Books is proud to announce a new digital-first singles line called Cutting Block: Single Slices.

Each Slice will be comprised of a single, character-driven supernatural horror short of the kind you’ve come to expect from the folks who’ve brought you five Bram Stoker Award® nominated short story anthologies.

If you’re one of our loyal readers, look for the 99 cent Slices to begin appearing in Amazon’s Kindle store early next year.

If you’re a horror writer, check out our Submissions page for more information… and hurry, because the window for general submissions is only open for a limited time!
