Fear or Fright… You will be afraid tonight!

Site upgrade coming soon

Our website will be moving to a new server soon, meaning we will be losing all of our old posts. We apologize, but as we are starting to gear up for 2013 and the multiple releases we have coming out, we feel that we need to change. This site had been meant to be a temporary site to begin with, and we had not meant to keep it here as long as we have.

The domain name will be the same. You will see the change when you notice a new look and design to the site.

Thank you,

Jason R. Davis

Jason R. Davis to appear as a guest at CHFF 2012

Jason R. Davis, author of “Inside the Mirrors” will be a guest for this years Chicago Horror Film Festival, September 28th – 30th. While Jason Davis is the founder of the Chicago Horror Film Festival, he left the festival in 2010 to focus on his writing and his family. This year, he is returning as a guest and will be there to sign copies of his novel.

Jason Davis will also be running a contest throughout the month a September through his website for a chance to win a three day pass for the film festival as well as a copy of “Inside the Mirrors”. The details of the contest will be announced on his website http://horrorauthorjasondavis.com on August 31st.

“Jason R. Davis is the founder of the Chicago Horror Film Festival and the Indy Horror Film Festival. He has an education in film studies and screenwriting. However, before he went into film, he had another love that had driven him. Writing. Reading. The Art of Fiction.

In 2003 he founded the Chicago Horror Film Festival. With very few outlets that supported the horror genre at the time, it gave him a venue to not only show his own films, but for other great horror films from around the world. In 2005, the festival grew to a point where he created its sister festival, the Indy Horror Film Festival.

Now, with a strong knowledge in horror, and what makes a terror filled story, he has transitioned himself from festival director and filmmaker to fiction writer. He is currently on break from both festivals to pursue his writing. “Inside the Mirrors” was released December of 2009 as is available for order wherever books are sold.”


“Deadhead Miles” – Call for Submissions

We are currently reading submissions for an upcoming anthology, “Deadhead Miles.” For the compilation, we are looking for themed tales of horror on the road. We are mostly seeking Truck Driving related stories, either with the driver as the protagonist or the antagonist, however, we will read other stories that are exceptionally written.

We do not specialize in splatter and gore for the sake of it. Intelligent, thought-provoking horror is favoured over shock. Actual horror is creating a feeling and building atmosphere and writing just to make an audience squeamish is not all that is needed. That is not to say that the story can not have these elements, they just need to be used properly.

We only accept email submissions. Please ensure that they are in .doc, .docx, .pdf, or .rtf formats.

Important, please note: We expect a short cover email with synopsis, and a brief bio (including previous publication credits, if any). If you can’t be bothered doing this, it is only fair to assume we might not bother to read your submission.

For written work, we DO NOT accept simultaneous submissions. However, we will consider reprints. Email us at submit@fearorfrightpublishing.com

We are looking for the following:
*Short Stories/Novellas (up to 15,000 words), no more than three per submission;

Submissions that are accepted will receive $10 for rights listed below. All works that meet our specifications will receive a written letter by us as to acceptance as well as a short critique.

We require one-time print/electronic rights and print/electronic archive rights. Many magazines will not publish pieces that have been published in print or on the web. Once your work has been published, it can only ever be re-marketed as a reprint severely limiting the number of markets that will accept it, and drastically reduces the pay rate it can receive. If you have any questions/queries, contact us at info@fearorfrightpublishing.com
