The Beast Under your Bed YA Horror Anthology

Remember when you were younger and you couldn't wait to snag the next copy of Goosebumps, Fear Street, or read another Christopher Pike book? Remember when Gremlins came out and it was the scariest thing next to the adult "Critters" movie? Or when Tim Burton graced us with the first children's bizarro movie? Those memories are slowly becoming just that...memories. It's time our youth are given another chance to read like we did. "The Beast Under your Bed" specializes in child horror.

Up to the pre-teen age, the stories should be filled with enough horror to frighten them, but with an ending to keep them coming back for more.

PG writing is a requirement! No cursing or dropping F-bombs. Stories need to be clean of adult content (these will literally be marketed to young kids.)

Send in your best creepy, monsters in your closet, vampires outside your window, and Monster land under your bed (Remember the movie with Fred Savage Little Monsters? Epic movie and perfect to show the fear but courage that children have to face their fears.)

3k-10k word count. Crisp and polished work.
No deadline, ongoing project with multiple volumes.
