There's a brand-new small publisher with a niche that is right up my alley: dark and macabre stories and novels for MG, YA, and NA.
Here's the URL: http://hocuspocusco.com/about/ and here's their Twitter handle: @HocusPocusCo
They say there's a lack of the spooky genre in the above-mentioned age groups, and I think they're right.
They've been calling for short stories that they want to add to an anthology to be published around Halloween (they're Halloween-themed too).
I've just written a short story to submit to them, but it makes me wary that they don't list who's behind this new company. It could be one of the shady agents or editors we've been hearing about on this forum... who knows?
I hope someone here can give me some feedback - maybe even Victoria herself - that would be awesome. If you have any publishing contacts, maybe you could ask around who are the owners of Hocus Pocus & Co.
I really hope this is legit because I just love their premise.
