If you have a soon to be published book that you’d like to have considered for review in Cemetery Dance magazine, you’re on the right page. This is NOT how you submit manuscripts for publication consideration. This page is only for books that are already being published. If you have a manuscript or artwork you want to submit to the magazine, comic, or book line, please visit the appropriate page: Magazine Submission Guidelines, Comic Submission Guidelines, or Book Submission Guidelines.
Please Note: Authors may submit properly bound review copies, but make sure your publisher isn’t sending us a review copy first. We are happy to consider self-published works, but they must be submitted as bound copies. No emails, electronic versions, or loose pages please.
To have your book considered for review in the magazine, please send one review copy/galley to each of the following addresses:
Cemetery Dance magazine
P.O. Box 623
Forest Hill, MD 21050
Nanci Kalanta, Review Editor
543 Hilltop Drive
Staunton, VA 24401
You need to send review copies to both addresses for your book to be fully considered. Materials cannot be returned and we cannot confirm receipt due to the overwhelming amount of material we receive.
We receive hundreds of review materials every month, and although the editors wish we could review them all, we have a very limited number of slots. Any material that is reviewed will appear first on Horrorworld.org and then a selection of those reviews will appear in the magazine at a later date. This will give your book twice as much exposure as just appearing in the magazine, while allowing the reviews to be posted in as timely a manner as possible.
Important Note From Nanci Kalanta: I do not accept unsolicited stories. Any works received will be shred. Please submit short stories through the proper channels. Only send proper review copies of soon to be published books to the addresses above.
