Blood Bound Books is running TWO open submission calls. Please read our guidelines before submitting.
DON'T FALL ASLEEP is open to submissions for "Frist Chapter Fridays"!
This is an excellent opportunity for authors to get the first chapter of their novel/novella professionally recorded and promoted on the DON'T FALL ASLEEP audio channel.
Much like we did for Kristopher Triana’s A FINE EVENING IN HELL, Spencer Dillehaye will record the first chapter ONLY of your new/ upcoming release and post it to YouTube, Amazon, Google, Apple, and a slew of other podcast channels along with a giveaway opportunity for either giftcards or a copy of the novel itself.
Here’s an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kwzrv2m9ExM&t=260s
There is a limit to how graphic we can be on YouTube, so be cognizant of what you're submitting. Regardless of the extreme nature of Spencer's narration of Toxic Love and The Night Stalkers, the channel is open to all forms of dark fiction, and a quick listen will reveal that we love a wide range of stories.
This is a chance to get the word out about your book and help DON'T FALL ASLEEP grow a channel that promotes authors and delivers great content to readers/listeners.
Submit the first chapter of your novel here:https://forms.gle/KG8pbuGYdYHy5N45A
