Freaks & Weeping Children Submissions Open

Posted: November 18, 2013 in Fiction, Freaks & Weeping Children, Writing


Welcome to a little idea I’ve had for a while now. I’ve always had this love of books and stories so why not feed that love? Why not gather together a group of new writers – writers I enjoy reading, as well as unfamiliar writers – and publish an anthology of stories from fresh voices in the field? Well, I think I will.

First up, an anthology of tales with a title which hints at a dark theme: FREAKS & WEEPING CHILDREN. I’m not hampering anyone’s creativity by insisting on one genre over another. Writers are free to explore the ideas as wildly as they wish.

 I’ll be editing and designing the anthology myself. The costs of cover art and Ingram fees will be coming out of an account I set aside specifically for Freaks & Weeping Children.
