Submissions

SUBMISSIONS OPEN.

Follow these guidelines and you have a great chance of getting your story published…

Max Words – 1000. 

Crime, Thriller and Horror stories are encouraged but most genres will be accepted.

PEDOPHILIA, SEXUAL VIOLENCE (RAPE), CHILD ABUSE OR ANIMAL CRUELTY WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED AND YOU WILL GET A PRETTY OFFENSIVE REPLY.  KEEP THOSE STORIES IN YOUR OWN HEAD AND SEEK HELP!!

Please only submit original work (Stories that are your own. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.)  NEW stories are preferred BUT previously published work will be considered but you must own the rights.  If it has appeared in an anthology please check with the publisher/editor that the work is available to submit.  Most are usually OK about it.

ONLY ONE STORY PER SUBMISSION.

Paste your story into the body of an email (preferably from MS Word) OR as a .doc attachment and send it to tkncsubs@gmail.com, with SUBMISSION and the GENRE of your story in the subject line.

Include a short bio with your submission (and if you wish to a black & white photo) which will appear with your story.

A quick hello is always appreciated.

Edit your work as best you can but final editing will be carried out by us.  Any changes required will be discussed with yourselves.  Our aim is to publish the best stories and working together we can achieve that.

You will receive a reply within 4-6 weeks.  If you don’t please feel free to give us a nudge as sometimes real life can get in the way.

We aim to post a story fortnightly.  Please note that you may have to wait a further few weeks before your story is published.

Unfortunately Thrills, Kills ‘n’ Chaos is a non paying site.  The best we can do is get your stories read by a new audience, for the time being.  One day – who knows.

Give us your best…

  3. Kate, you are. I just haven’t got round to updating that part of the site. I will as soon as I get a chance…..and remember.

  4. Hey! Why aren’t I a ‘friend of TKnC?

    I like you. Surely I do.
    Whole scary bunches.

    David,
    Please give my best to Col, Lily, et al for the wonderful job they have done. Best of luck to you and a wish for much success in bringing up baby brother, or sister, or monster, whatever. I look forward to continuing to submit to and read the new TKnC’s stories.

    Thanks David,
    I’ll be modifying a story I sent to you sometime back which you liked. I am also relly curious to see how the new site goes. I wish you all the best.

  11. Hi Keith. Thrills, Kills ‘n’ Chaos isn’t a direct replacement for Thrillers. It’s a different magazine that’s going to carry on the legacy of the original.

    If your stories fall into the submissions guidelines I’d be happy read read them. Please note the different word max – 1000.

    Thanks,
    David – Editor
