The Dead Walk Volume 3…
We have received many questions as to what is the status of Dead Walk, vol. 3. Now that FoF has been folded back into Breaking Fate Publishing, we have cut back on the number of horror anthologies. That being the case, the Dead Walk series is our number #1 anthology and will not be going away anytime soon.
We have a number of great submissions, but we are also changing our policy on compensation. Going forward, instead of sending contributor copies, we will paying set amounts for accepted works. We are opening the Call for Submissions and setting a new deadline of August 26th.
To those who have already submitted, we still have your submissions. If you would like to no longer have your work in consideration, please email us at email@example.com.

What Happens Next?
After manuscripts are received, they are reviewed by first readers. First readers consider each submission’s literary potential and whether it might be a good fit for one of our anthologies.
Promising submissions are then carefully reviewed by other editors.
The anthology editor makes a final decision on whether to reject or accept the manuscript. For manuscripts that show some promise but need further development, the editor may write the author to request revisions on speculation.
If we accept your manuscript, we will send you an acceptance letter detailing payment and rights information and any revisions we would like you to make (which acceptance shall only be binding upon your signing a final agreement that embodies agreed-upon rights and terms).
Once we’ve received your revisions, we carefully line edit the manuscript. The manuscript is then returned for your review. We work closely with our writers to bring out the best in each story and poem.
Once the manuscript is edited, it will be kept on file to be used for an upcoming anthology. It can take up to 6–8 months before a manuscript is published.
Previously published work is acceptable as long as author has rights for work to be reprinted.
BFP does not require exclusive rights for publication.
Fiction: $10 per accepted work
