Dark Helix Ezine
Dark Helix Press will be publishing an ezine starting May 2018 for the purpose of helping authors market themselves. Think of it as a Costco magazine sampler with words instead of food! The first two issues are by invitation only. We will open up for submissions after we test our processes first to ensure things go smoothly. We hope to do this on a bimonthly basis.
What we are looking for: flash fiction (<1800 words) and poetry (<100 lines) according to each issue’s theme. In addition, each author will be asked for a description of what inspired the piece (more info below).
This is a marketing platform for writers and Dark Helix Press will not be offering compensation. Any ad revenue will go towards printing and distribution at trade shows/conferences. Our value proposition for each author:
1) author will work with an editor
2) free author promo page for your work with: a. what inspired the written story (behind the scenes/words), b. blurb on latest project and c. advice for new writers (give us 250 words for a-c). Also include a short 70 word bio.
3) free author ad for the latest book with where to buy (send us a 3″ x 3″ jpeg or 3″ x 8.5″ horizontal jpeg) and author website
4) picture of yourself looking authorish (optional, 3″ x 3″ jpeg), sexy ok but no nakedness
5) We will tweet and post on Dark Helix Press’ Facebook page an excerpt from your story
6) free event/contests listing – if you have any events/contests coming up, we can list that on a page with everyone’s stuff
