Rock and Shock

In a little less than a week, the NEHW will be making the annual pilgrimage to Worcester, MA for the mayhem that is Rock and Shock.  3+ days of metal, horror and pop culture.  We've been doing this show as long as I can remember the show being around.  This is the convention's 11th year and it might be ours being there as well.

I (Scott) used to go to the show as a fanboy.  Drive down to the Centrum early as hell on Saturday, grab my ticket and bop around for a few hours.  After joining up with the NEHW I started selling books there and hanging out with the other writers gathered within.  A couple years ago, I took over the show from TJ May and have been digging it ever since.  The years went by, some of the faces changed, the rest of us got older.  Now it's waiting until the weekend of the 17th.

They used to have the show on Columbus day weekend, until NY Comic Con started sucking up all the star power and draw.

I can't tell you who the first person I got a signature from at R&S was, but one of my favorites is the always lovely Dee Wallace.  And I keep waiting for that big Phantasm re-union.  But until then...

Rock and Shock

On Saturday our own Jack Haringa and KH Vaughan from 12-1PM

We're also doing the first ever writing class/seminar on the basics of the craft Saturday 4:30 to 5:30 - that one will be taught by Trisha Wooldridge, Bracken Macleod and me (Scott Goudsward.)

Coming to the convention for signing are:

Trisha and Scott Wooldridge

The Next Anthology

The New England Horror Writers (NEHW) are pleased to announce their third anthology!
The currently untitled book will debut at Anthocon (www.anthocon.com) during the annual convention in Portsmouth, NH on 6/6/15.

The book will be another open themed anthology, to be edited by David Price, Daniel Keohane and Scott Goudsward.

Because we are doing an open themed anthology the requirements aren’t too difficult.
Stories should be between 2500 words and 5000 words. Query for longer or shorter works. We’re not looking for tired, old clich├ęd fiction or your trunk stories that have been hanging around for years. Send us new and innovative fiction, no reprints or multiple submissions, please.

The anthology is only open to members of the NEHW.

The basics – all stories should be dark, not necessarily horror, but dark. Whether you story is horror, noir, dark fantasy, paranormal, make us cringe. We shouldn’t have to say it, but we’re going to. Please, keep it R rated, no excessive sex or gore. We’re not looking for erotica or splatterpunk. Please keep the kids out of the sex, it’s just creepy and not fun to read.  Violence is ok, but like the earlier statements, if it fits the story, that’s fine.

That’s about it.

The anthology will have 13-15 new and original stories. We will be taking two reprints by invite only.
Reading period is 10/1/14 – 12/31/14. Please do not query about your story until after the reading period has ended. We will contact you, one way or the other. Once you sub a story to us, please do not query if we’ve received it. If you haven’t heard back in say a week, give us a follow up email.
Payment is one copy of the book and $50 per story. Poems are $15 per piece. We’re not accepting artwork at this time. Payments will be made within 90 days of publication. We’re asking for FNASR and first ebook rights.

Please send all submissions to NEHWSUBS@gmail.com all stories should be in standard MS formatting. DOC DOCX or RTF only please. Attach stories as a file do NOT copy and paste the story into the body of the email. Put all of your contact info on the front page of the story. Footers are not needed, headers if you want. Double spaced, single space after periods. Use the tab key, do not indent with the space bar…

We will be featuring reprints by Rick Hautala (http://www.rickhautala.com/)  and Christopher Golden (http://www.christophergolden.com/) .  The amazing Chet Williamson (http://www.chetwilliamson.com/) will be doing the forward.

 That about sums her up…
