    [Publisher] Blood Bound Books

    I've written a story for possible submission to Blood Bound Books . Anybody here dealt with them?

    No, but I followed your link and I have to say I love that they have an anthology for sale for $6.66 .

    I don't know BBB, either. I Amazon'ed their books and they sound pretty interesting. But if they pay only 3/4 cent per word for your story, you're collecting $7.50 for a 1,000 word piece. Is there any royalty action in there, too, or is the $7.50 all you get?

    I think it is a flat fee. I sent them a story I had that was a bit too weird for my normal markets. It will be in their upcoming Steamy Screams anthology. A token payment but I knew that going in.

    I just got short listed for their Night Terrors II anthology. Should have an answer by the end of August.

    I have no idea what the publishing deal is...heh. I think I'll get two cents a word, but have no idea on royalties. Hope I'm not jinxing myself ;-)

    I just signed with Blood Bound Books. My novel 'The Sinner' is slated for release Summer 2012.

    I have to say that I am very impressed with BBB and look forward to working with them.

    In the end I didn't make the cut (heh) for the anthology, but BBB looks like a great place to have a book deal!

    I received a very nice personal rejection from BBB a few days ago. I was disappointed that my novella wasn't a good fit for them, but they offered some great feedback and suggestions and it sounded like they liked it otherwise. I'd definitely consider submitting to them again in the future.

    It looks like they are paying more per word for their latest anthology call.

    I sold a novel to them late last year for release sometime in the first half of this year. So far it's been a great process, very transparent, and the editing is top notch. The contract is fairly standard, no advance, but generous royalties. I've been in personal contact with Marc Ciccarone and he's professional. I will update with my experiences, but I am confident they will be positive.

    I'm not sure why my user name is "Klotho," it seems to have been reset. I'm going to try to change it back to my real name, which is Nikki Hopeman.

    Congratulations! They're one of the few 'pulp horror' publishers like Dark Fuse, Black Death, and Necro, who appear to know and treasure what they do. Hope you have nice promo and sales.

    Vampire books are popular fodder in romance, but are considered cliche in the horror genre.
