I’m a sucker for funny titles, so of course this one tickled me.
Evil Girlfriend is actually two markets rolled into one. Not only are they a magazine, but they are also a small press publishing company. So, if you write horror, this might be one you bookmark.
For book publishing-
Genre- dystopian, near future sci-fi, horror, paranormal, apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, and urban fantasy genres. (Copied from their website.)
Word Length- 65,000 to 100,000.
Wait time- Generally three months, and they invite you to query them if you haven’t heard anything after that.
Reading time- They are only looking at manuscripts from March 13 to May 1 of this year. So if you have something ready right now, sit on it for another few weeks. If you’re not quite done yet, you’re in luck.
For the magazine, Speculate!
Word Count-4,000 to 7,000
Payout- $100, which makes this the highest paying market I’ve ever posted.
Wait time- Not listed
Rights- They will have first North America rights. Your story will be in the archives for two years, and they have the right to include it in an anthology if they so chose.
As always, here is your link to the full submission guidelines. Best of luck.
