Dark Valentine Magazine is here

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 1, 2010, 9:12 AM


Portfolio ::::: Store::::: Blog ::::: Livejournal ::::: Facebook ::::: Twitter ::::: Fanfiction








I'm the art director on a new magazine, Dark Valentine, that is dedicated to dark fiction. The publisher, Katherine Tomlinson, veteran of the movie, magazine and publishing industries, is our publisher, and author Christine Pope is our valiant editor.

The amazing graphic designer/illustrator :iconsavivi: designed our site, which is now up and running. You can see the new Dark Valentine website here. I'm very happy with it, and I can't wait until the first issue.  

We are accepting submissions for story submissions and illustrations. Here are the details:

The first issue will be in May, deadline is April 1.

We’re soliciting entries for our THROUGH A LENS DARKLY (they’re not paid) and we will pay $10 for stories and $10 for illustrations that run in each of our quarterly issues of DARK VALENTINE. We know that’s not much but it’s coming out of our own pockets.) Web design is by the multi-talented Sarah Vaughn, whose stories and art you may remember from Astonishing Adventures Magazines #7 and #8.

We will be specializing in dark fiction—mystery, horror, romance, slipstream, urban fantasy, fantasy, sci fi, cyberpunk, you name it. Our influences range from E.A. Poe to Tanith Lee. We know you’ve got a story to tell us.

Here’s where you send it: submissions@darkvalentine.net.

Right now, we just need illustrations of stories.

I'm so glad you're interested! Please send a link of work to submissions@darkvalentine.net, and we'll get back to you soon. :)

Please tell me, do the artists illustrate every story or they choose which one to illustrate, and then someone decides whose illustration is the best? Sorry if my questions are silly :D I'm just wondering if i could deal with. For example, I could illustrate a victorian-style horror but I'm not sure if I would know how to make an illustration for SF with aliens and robots :D.

All three of us decide whether we want to use an artist or not. After we have all the stories, I assign an artist to whatever story I feel is best suited for their particular talents. Please submit your work to submissions@darkvalentine.net-- but I'm sure we can find something for you, if not in this issue, then the next one. :)

You know I'm all up in this. :heart: Will illustrations be done for specific stories, or do you just need general illustrative content?

For right now, just illustrations of stories.

Could you resend Kathy your snail mail address? She's got her money for AAM #8.
