Featured NEW Horror Stories:
Horror Short Stories Wanted
Dabblestone.com is creating a new showcase for short horror stories, and we would like to publish your short horror fiction here. Click the link to our Story Archive below to see samples of how your story will appear when published.
If you have a story that has yet to see the published light of day, and you believe it is of such quality to entertain and thrill our readers, send it in.
Any original short stories of horror that have never before been published will be considered.
If accepted, we will pay you a handsome rate of $0.002 per word (1 cent per 5 words). We cannot afford much, as we are just beginning to grow, but in lieu of self-publishing your story for free consumption or burying it under your floorboards for future generations to discover after your death, please try sending it in to us. We will give your story a cozy home amongst other thrilling stories of horror and supernatural and make you a paid semi-professional writer in the process.
