Shades of Black: Grave Distinction Call Out.

The Wild Rose Press’s Black Rose Imprint is looking for dark romance stories set in or around old cemeteries (these can be real or fictional). Perhaps a graveyard at an old manor house or mansion. We’re looking for dark, paranormal ambiance. Send a shiver up our spine as you weave a tale of romance.

Stories should revolve around the graveyard and should incorporate dark creatures of the night. Shifters, vamps, demons, incubuses, succubuses, gargoyles, dark angels, witches, warlocks, or even evil ghosts. Bring those grave markers or statuary to life.

Stories should target 8-40K words preferably, however, longer works up to 85K will be accepted. 

We have extended this call out through November, 2013.

Please follow the basic Black Rose guidelines

  2. I love those pics!!! Is that New Orleans? For some reason I always think of there when I see pics like that.

  3. Charlotte, thank you so much for pointing this error out. We have extended that deadline. If you have a story idea, please feel free to send it in.

    My apologies to all for the error. But we are always looking for good dark paranormal stories, so deadline or no, send those stories in!
