Ghost Stories

smalllogoWe want your spooky stories about spectres, poltergeists, shades, shadows, spirits, spooks, wraiths and things that go bump in the night. In short, we’re looking for ghost stories (and poetry).

Our December issue this year is going to have a ghostly theme so we’re looking for your best ghostly fiction to fill our pages. Because it’s the December issue we’ll also be giving extra consideration to stories that take place in winter time.

All our submission guidelines, payout rates and such remain the same as for usual issues, just make sure you choose the correct category when you submit via our submissions form.

Submissions are open now and close on September 30th, 2013.

2013 Fundraiser

NitebladeWould you like to know a secret?

When I set up our 2013 fundraiser on IndieGoGo this year I’d hoped to raise $300. I set the goal at $500 because, well, that was the minimum amount that Indiegogo would let me choose. Well, boy did you guys teach me a lesson. Not only did we raise more than $300 we raised more then $500. In the end we raised $604!

Let me say that again in case you missed it — Together we raised $604!

Now, for some presses that would barely put a dent in their budget. For Niteblade, however, that is freaking huge. Huge. And I can’t thank you enough.

Thank you for donating things for use to offer as perks and stretch goals. Thank you for spreading the word, telling your friends, family and followers about Niteblade and saying we’re a worthwhile destination for their hard earned dollars. And of course, thank you for your donations. Each dollar matters. It really and truly does. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I use the annual fundraiser when I’m doing budgets for the following year and, judging by how well this one went, I suspect this is going to be Niteblade’s best year yet.

Hang on tight, we’re going to be in for a hell of a ride.
