  1. Wesley Southard Says:

    I was just wondering if you had any sort of time frame on when the anthology would be released? Also, where will it be available when released?

    • The deadline for submissions is 07/31/2011. It will definitely be available on I’m working with Wild Child Publishing for possible ebook publishing. The Indiana Horror Anthology 2011 should be available no later than Oct 1, 2011.

  2. Wesley Southard Says:

    I feel dumb for asking (I just like to have all the info I can get before submitting to anyone) but this will be a trade paperback, right? I know it says you’re offering copies instead of pay now, but I wanted to make sure it was a physical book and not a ebook copy. Thanks again!

  3. Indiana Horror Anthology 2011 will have a traditional print run. I look forward to your submission.

  4. Just want to give you a heads up, that David Boyer might try to enter this site. Please do not give this proven plagiarist any access here.

    In case you do not know who David Boyer is, he lives in Vicennes Indiana and I can offer you proof that he is a plagiarist and con artist in these links:

    and here:

    I fyou need more proof, please email me at and I thank you.

  5. I also want to add that David Boyer goes by many aliases, including David Byron, Doc Byron, Grant Dean, Sean Killian, Leland Gaines, George LaCroix, Tobey King, Leo Wolfe, Jack Sawyer, Christian Loche, Jack Burnett, Kelli Kelso and Kelli Ross, and probably more.

    You can see more about David Boyer at the Science Fiction Writers Association here:

    And also at Victoria Strauss Writers Beware:

    But remember,, for a list of aliss go here:

  6. I’m accepting submissions for Indiana Horror 2012 now so that my favorite people can get their stuff in early.
