Red Cape Publishing calling for submissions to be included in a series of Anthologies

Red Cape Publishing calling for submissions to be included in a series of Anthologies

If you are a horror writer and are able to create a story based around a specific theme, this could be an opportunity for you. Red Cape Publishing are calling out for submissions for a series of horror anthologies, which will be based on the theme of the Four Elements and will consist of four books.

They are looking for short horror stories, between 3000 and 5000 words, on each of the themes; Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. You may submit to more than one book, but we will only include a maximum of one story from each author, in each book. Being accepted into one book, does not guarantee acceptance into one of the others.

The story must be your own work, to which you hold the rights. The story must not be available elsewhere and, if accepted, we will hold the rights to it for twelve months from the date of publication. After that time, you may use the story however you wish.

Any sub-genre of horror is suitable, even extreme, so long as the story does not include anything which may unnecessarily cause offence (glorification of child abuse, rape, bestiality, etc.).

Payment for the story will be £5, to be paid by PayPal, as well as a contributor’s paperback of the finished book.

They are looking to put the books out in quick succession, so the deadlines for each are listed below.

Elements of Horror Book One: Earth – Submissions close May 31st 2019

Elements of Horror Book Two: Air – Submissions close June 30th 2019

Elements of Horror Book Three: Fire – Submissions close July 31st 2019

Elements of Horror Book Four: Water – Submissions close August 31st 2019

Red Cape Publishing co-creator PJ Blakey-Novis had the following to say about the anthologies:

We came up with the idea of the Four Elements as they provide a large scope for story ideas, whilst being able to link a series of anthologies together. Book One: Earth is now full, with limited spaces left for Books Two to Four, Air, Fire, and Water respectively. The books will be available in ebook, paperback, and audiobook, and we hope to release the books steadily from September to December. Submissions will remain open until full. 

Please send submissions in a Word document to redcapepublishing@outlook.com with the title of the book you are submitting to in the subject line.

If you have any queries, you can contact Red Cape Publishing on the Contact page.

Red Cape Publishing aim to respond to submissions within 28 days of the deadline. Good luck!

RECAP: TWD, S06E06, Always Accountable

RECAP: TWD, S06E06, Always Accountable

By Nicole Robinson

Daryl Dixon

It might be safe to say we can all start fearing for the safety of Daryl’s immortal soul after Sunday’s episode “Always Accountable”. It appears AMC is weaning us off of Daryl Dixon slowly but surely. The majority of this season has been Daryl light, focused mainly on Rick establishing his authority as leader of Alexandria. Always Accountable was perhaps the most Daryl-centric episode since the Beth story arc. We also learned something really important about everybody’s favorite redneck, he makes mistakes too and this one may get him killed.

This week we caught up with Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham and the attempts to lead what is left of the mega herd from the quarry away from Alexandria. As they put distance between themselves and the herd, a group of car starts chasing and shooting at them. Sasha and Abraham crash out, shoot the people who were shooting at them, and take cover. Daryl heads into the woods.

He quickly loses the ones chasing him in a section of the woods which has clearly been destroyed by flames leaving him without a lot of cover to hide in. Convinced he hears something, he goes into creeper mode and finds two woman begging for leniency before being knocked out by their male companion and being left in and out of consciousness until the next day.

The group explains that they are actually from this area and they are responsible for burning the woods to the ground while trying to combat the walkers who appeared just after this outbreak first started. They fled but now they’ve come back to find a woman they call Patty. Unfortunately, when they arrive at the fuel company where Patty apparently worked, the place has been overrun with zombies and then one of the girls passes out, which give Daryl the perfect opening to grab a duffel bag the group had been carrying as he ran into the woods.

Daryl arrives at a safe spot and retrieves his crossbow from the duffle bag only to find a cooler of insulin explaining why the girl passed out. This is the moment that he makes his biggest mistake and his good intentions take over. He decides to return the insulin. He returns and demands the man’s weapon and a wood carved statue in return for the cooler based on “the principle of the situation”. Daryl is ready to walk away when a truck pulls into the woods. The man and his companions have obvious worry on their faces making it clear this is threat.

Good intentions leads Daryl to helping them escape while handing the gun back over to the guy. The trio explains to Daryl that the place they just came from is a camp built on the code of giving whatever you have in exchange for protection. Deciding to escape this lifestyle, they decided to hit the road with the insulin and this group is looking for them.

Daryl helps them avoid the people as they begin to walk back across the woods when the diabetic girl happens upon a house she once recognized. It seems these were some neighbors she used to babysit for before the world went to hell. The glass roof melted and cooked them alive but the girl makes the cardinal mistake of getting too close without actually checking if the people were dead or really dead and they both rise up and take a bite out of her throat. While digging a grave for her body, Daryl decides to ask Rick’s ‘three questions’ to see if these people are worthy to return with him to Alexandria. In return for his hospitality, they steal his crossbow and motorcycle at while holding the gun he returned to them in his face.

 Thinking he was making new friends to bring back to his clubhouse, Daryl offered up more than enough information for this to catch up with him in the future, leading us to believe that our Bonnie and Clyde-like burglars will be back. We can be sure taking his crossbow and his motorcycle is the most obvious clue that we will see these faces again. Considering that they were shooting at him at first, there is no surprise at the double crossing.

Did the Walking Dead just introduce the Saviors?

***Warning, Comic Spoilers ahead.***

Always Accountable has the feel of a filler episode and the dry atmosphere could lead one to mistake it as nothing important. I have avoided discussing the upcoming events from the comic book in avoiding the possibility of ruining it for the non-readers of the graphic novels. With the introduction of Bonnie and Clyde this week it is almost unavoidable to point out that the man is likely going to be very important down the road.

The introduction of the yet to be named robbers and the stealing of the crossbow making it obvious they will be back brings me to believe there is another threat coming. The herd story arc will not last forever. Around this time in the comic we begin to discover that Alexandria is not the only community that exists in the area and the Saviors is one of the other ones in the area. Earlier this week it was confirmed that Jeffery Dean Morgan has been casted to the iconic bat wielding leader of the Saviors, Negan so it is becoming clear that he is coming soon and so is Lucille.

Fans of the comic know that it is only a matter of time before Negan knocks at the gates of Alexandria so it is safe to assume that this is the set up leading to the something we really do need to fear. What we saw tonight and the mistake of trusting these two will likely come back to haunt Daryl down the road. This is the bridge that is needed to connect the two communities and singling out Daryl as a recognizable face to this new threat. Negan’s first appearance is one that marks a change to the dynamic of the story and the bloodshed he brings as a result is the most memorable death of the series. He beats Glenn to death with a baseball bat wrapped in barb wire he lovingly has named Lucille while Rick, Maggie, and many other of our group of survivors look on helplessly. Killing Glenn is such a way on the show seems unlikely and predictable. What better death than that of Daryl Dixon for such a huge moment? After all No One Is Safe.

Speaking of fillers, Sasha and Abraham appear to be developing a romantic connection in this episode. Not sure how Rosita will react to new found affections they have for each other but it seems that Abe is ready for a new companion. Guess we are all going to have wait and find out how this subplot plays out in the coming weeks.

The last moment of this week’s episode found Daryl reunited with Sasha and Abe on the road back to Alexandria. On the ride while attempting to contact Rick on the walkie talkie, a voice answered back “Help”. We know this is not Rick because he should be safe and sound back home while all this has gone down. Norman Reedus told Yahoo TV “"Not Glenn. The only thing I'll say is that it's not Glenn". Is he telling the truth or just trying to throw fans off the scent? Another week passes without an answer as to the fate of Glenn…… maybe next week.
