Ready…Set…Scare Us!

Submissions are officially open for The Nightmare Before Christmas!  We’ve already got a great response from some eager short story writers who were so excited to share what they wrote they totally ignored the starting time.  It’s alright, we still love you even if you can’t follow directions. Writers are, after all, known for thinking outside the box.

So what do you have to say for yourself?

Participating is easy.  This is what you do:

  • Write a short story.  1000 words or less.  If you just participated in NaNoWriMo, this will be a piece of cake.  Hell, maybe you participated in NaNo and  you’re horrified because all you came up with was 1000 words.
  • The theme is horror.  Most of the stories have had a holiday sub theme.  You can be festive and do this, but if your scariness knows no season, that’s fine too.
  • When it’s all prettied up, send it on over to undeadduo (at) hotmail (dot) com.  Subject line:  Nightmare Before Christmas.  Please include your social media contact information (blog, twitter, facebook, whatever your platform of choice happens to be) so your new fans know where to find more words of wisdom from you.

We will be sharing short stories between Dec 1 and 25.  This is not a contest, there are no prizes.  Just the warm, mushy feeling of giving and sharing in the season. We do reserve the right to fix typos.

Julie and I can not wait to see what all your sick twisted minds come up with.


We Want You To Scare The Hell Out Of Us!

Today’s brew:  Next stop:  Starbucks!

The holiday season is the season of giving.  Of course, most people think of scarves, cookies, goodwill to man, and all that jazz.  Kristen and Julie have a different idea.

We want you to give us the scare of the season!

December will be Nightmare Before Christmas Month at Deadly Ever After.  So how can you give to this cause?

We want you to submit your short horror stories to be shared on this very blog.  We just ask that you keep them to under 1000 words and that you scare the living daylights out of us!

Send your submission to undeadduo (at) hotmail (dot) com.  Subject line: Nightmare Before Christmas.  Depending on the number of responses, we may choose select stories.  Please submit between November 25 and December 10, 2012.  Also include your blog address, so we can lead readers back to the source of the madness! Stories will be posted between December 1-25, 2102.

Don’t say we never gave you anything, dolls.
