Ghost Orchid Press Dark Hearts Anthology

web site

Deadline: February 28, 2021

Heartbreak. Obsession. Grief. Jealousy. Love can turn tainted, even cruel. Picture the ghost who won’t stop haunting the man who jilted her. The husband who will go to gruesome lengths to keep his wife alive. The stalker who’d rather kill her victims than face their rejection.

Dark Hearts will be an anthology of stories exploring the twisted side of love. We’re looking for stories that jump off the page. Stories that chill, shock or disturb us. Stories that move us or make us laugh… grimly.

Length: Anything between 1,000 – 6,000 words.
Payment: 0.01 USD per word via PayPal.
Publication: E-book and print.
Deadline: 28th February 2021

We accept simultaneous submissions but no reprints please. Multiple submissions not accepted.

Email your submission as a Word document to with “Dark Hearts [your pen name] [your story title]” in the subject line. Include an author bio of approx. 50 words plus 1-2 links.

Please see our Submission Guidelines for more information on formatting.
