When it comes to creating characters, I like them to be realistic with just a dash of darkness. I think that's how most people really are anyway. We all have quirks and oddities which make us our strange, but loveable selves. We have secrets, hidden desires, and "crazy" buttons just waiting to be pushed. Ah, we are delightfully dark!
We'd like to be able to give away a copy of it, but Dark and Dastardly giveaways don't come for free...No. We challenge you to submit your own 2,000 word dark tale to us in order to win a copy of the book. The submission with the darkest tale will be published on our site and will receive a free copy of All Things Dark and Dastardly.
Here are the rules:
1. Stories can't be longer than 2000 words.
2. Must have a dark theme.
3. Should be submitted in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Due by Oct. 1, 2011.
We look to receiving your dark works of art!
