Glimmer Press are not currently accepting general submissions.

We are accepting submissions for a new story anthology for adults, THRILL ME!

The Project

THRILL ME! will be an anthology of stories to make your heart race. Leave behind preconceived ideas about the thriller genre and see where your keyboard takes you. We are especially interested in stories that challenge the genre and venture into exciting new territory. Anything that gives your heart that flip flop moment counts. We are looking for stories that excite rather than stories that stick to conventions. Thrillers have countless sub-genres: eco, romance, legal, crime, action, psychological, sci-fi, disaster, forensic, medical, political, spy, supernatural, etc, and we want to explore them all and see how far we can push the genre.

THRILL ME! will be edited by author and editor Lynette Washington.

Please note: we are a feminist publisher. We love to publish stories by women and men, but will not publish stories that glamorise or fetishise the hatred of women or violence towards women.

We are especially interested in publishing diverse voices.
