Markets for Short Horror Stories
I have a couple of short horror stories I'm hoping to sell. I've found two anthologies that seem promising. One of them pays £5 per 1000 words and a copy of the book, the other pays a fixed rate of £9.99 and a copy of the book.
I know I'm not going to get rich from writing short horror stories but I somehow expected more than that. Do I simply have to accept that short horror stories are not fashionable and that this is the going rate? Or does someone know of a more lucrative market?
