Attention Horror Readers:
Yes, you heard right, SNM Magazine is
Attention Horror Writers:
Do you have an original short story you want to have published? All first and second time published and self-published writers welcome. If we publish it, we will showcase your story and promote your book or website right underneath your featured work in the hallowed halls of our magazine. If available, we will also post your featured author bio and picture on the site for the months your story is published. Submit us your best unpublished fiction! You can promote your book directly through your own channels of promotion and still get your name out to the masses. We don't charge fees for reading your story. We are the bootcamp of horror. Our philosophy is this: since no one becomes famous overnight, it's imperative for new writers to get exposure and acquire a good fan base. So, it's all about having your stories read, initially. We have become a launching ground for authors, who get feedback from our editors to learn and grow before submitting to pro paying markets. Moreover, we are a theme based magazine, which means by hosting a challenging theme, we force writers to write fresh stories, instead of submitting older works/reprints or recycled rejects. Anyone published in SNM Mag can make it in the pro paying market and we are here to trigger and ignite that dark inspiration for writers.
SNM Mag Promotion:
Fear not, we have covered all the bases. We are registered with all the major horror directory venues such as Duotrope, Preditors & Editors, Ralan, Horrorfind, Horrorgenre, Every Writer's Resource, and more. Additionally, we are listed on all the major search engines like Google, Yahoo,
We are open to submissions all year -- and the floodgates are opened! Horror writers wanted dead or alive for morbid cryptic weavings and grim scribe offerings! If you have an original work of horror between 2000-5000 words, then send it here, we want to see it! We will also provide feedback if we do not accept it, most likely within sixty days. We accept subs all year around but review 40 days to month featured.

We are live with "February Freestyles" issues # 63 & 64. We thank everyone who submitted for December's theme. We received 112 new submissions for February Freestyles. We've chosen (8) featured stories for the upcoming issue. We are now open for reviewing for April Amnesias subs.
Announcements: Senior Editor Steven Marshall has just released his fifth novel on Amazon entitled, “Resurrected Rituals.” It’s 340 pages and 110,000 words long, featuring 12 separate short stories of intertwining characters who don’t know each other, but their actions create a chain of horrific events. This marks Marshall’s longest book to date. You can preview one of his new stories from his upcoming novel on the SNM Short Stories Page; NOT in the issue. It’s called "Mistress of Deception."
Also be sure to check out Brett Matthew Graham’s newest novel on Amazon entitled, “Pretty Death Music.” It is 300 pages, 93,000 words, and is a complete-theme novel about the dark side of musicians lives and of course sex drugs and rock and roll, as they confront their own personal demons. Incidentally, Steven Marshall & Brett Graham are currently collaborating on a brand new novelette together that will be coming out in June of this year! But now on Amazon.com are Resurrected Rituals and Pretty Death Music in books. Order your copies today! We truly appreciate the support.
Running a press is not easy work - as an editor and publisher. So it’s also nice to be recognized as an author, which is how I got started in this business. Yet I wanted something bigger than myself to help new authors. So I built this mausoleum called SNM Horror Mag as a platform for up and coming authors to showcase their fiction works and help get them recognized in the industry. We’re into year seven as a press and have finally accomplished ourselves enough to expand in novel publishing for our authors. Since 2012, SNM Publications has published 6 new author novels. Aside from the bi-monthly e-zine, that is our main main focus in 2014 - and the foreseeable future here.
This issue from 8 New Voices of Horror:
Paris Café – David French
I Hear It in the Night – J.M. Maddison
Tradition – Brett Matthew Graham
The Decoration – Lisa Strong
The Good Wife – Rob Bliss
Looking at You – Nick Grant
