We also want to apologize for the huge delays in reading periods, we got very behind. We have accepted all of the stories for the following anthologies:

"Vermin", "Heavy Metal Horror" and "I, Executioner". We have begun doing final reading for the "Revenant" anthology but have pushed the "State of Horror: Lousiana" anthology back to 2010 and we'll be re-opening the reading period in the beginning of the year for it and hopefully get in some better submissions.

Vermin anthology Update
rymfireebooks
In the two weeks since the Vermin eBook anthology has been open to submissions we've received (as of today):

243 submissions


Of those, 35 have been rejected so far

There are 12 spots still open to fill. We've already passed 3 stories to the second round of reading, which will be conducted immediately after the reading period officially closes (July 15th).

"Vermin" anthology Update and Novella Update
rymfireebooks

The reading period for the "Vermin" horror anthology as well as the open period for Novella submissions started Wednesday.

So far, the initial turnout has been excellent.

Lets break it down for you:

"Vermin" story submissions as of 4/17/2009 11am:   60
Initial Rejections: 4
Open slots in anthology:  15
Returning stories previously accepted:  3
Remaining slots:  12

Keith Gouveia, Chuck Wendig and James F Reilly all have short stories already accepted in the anthology, but the other 12 slots are wide-open. I will tell you that the three stories accepted so far have the following 'vermin' involved: bugs, squirrels and rats.


As for the Novella Submissions as of 4/17/2009 11am: 12
Initial Rejections: 2

We are also looking at reprinting a release that Carnifex Press had previously put out that we love, and to answer the question we seem to get the most... YES, we will look at your novella even if it's been printed elsewhere before, as long as it is out of print now.

More to come... keep the submissions coming in!

Less than a month until the "Heavy Metal Horror" anthology opens, and we'll be adding a few more surprises coming up quickly as well... if you join our mailing list from our website you'll get first look (and advanced notice to submit) to the many other Horror anthologies we have coming out in late 2009 and into 2010 and beyond.

Four days until "Vermin" Opens...
rymfireebooks

The "Vermin" anthology opens to Horror short story submissions on Wednesday, April 15th... and we've gotten quite a few initial queries about the eBook, so it looks promising... we've also gotten a number of the short stories originally scheduled to be included in the original Carnifex Press release back as well, which is great news... but bad news for writers trying to get into the anthology since there will only be 15 stories selected in total (right now)...

Starting on the 15th we'll be doing all of our updating for the anthology right here, so keep an eye out for them... letting you know how many stories came in every few days, how many stories have been accepted for the second round of reading, how many stories were rejected, etc.

Vermin anthology
rymfireebooks

Sometimes I wonder about writers...

We've managed to post about the upcoming "Vermin" anthology in as many places as we know about, and I guess it is working to get the word out about the upcoming eBook anthology, because...

No less than five writers have already sent us their stories for the eBook...

Which would be great, if they had bothered to read the part where we aren't open to subs until April 15th.

Also, we've gotten three queries that basically all say: 'I have the perfect story for your antho, and I know you'll love it so much, so can I send it to you now to get a jump on the stories you'll be rejecting?'

As I am fairly new to the publishing world, I'm curious if any of my fellow publisher friends has run into the same thing...

Rymfire eBooks and Carnifex Metal eBooks
rymfireebooks

Carnifex Press has officially closed its doors, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel...

First, Armand Rosamilia has been busy with his Carnifex Metal eBook company

http://carnifexmetal.angelfire.com

Putting out non-fiction eBooks on Heavy Metal like "Metal Queens" and the "An eBook Tribute To..." series

AND NOW...

Rymfire eBooks, a new company, has decided to make Carnifex Metal eBooks an Imprint of their company and release all of the Carnifex Metal eBooks as well as do an eventual Heavy Metal-themed fiction eBook series!

In addition, Rymfire eBooks will be taking over where Carnifex Press left off (except for the mismanagement part!) by releasing eBook novellas from great horror authors, anthologies (including, perhaps, continuing the "Revenant Horror" line as well as the "Florida Horror" sequels, plus the never-released "Vermin" anthology...

In short, you can look for quite a few projects in 2009/2010 from
