Blue Light Special
An anthology of modern folktales illuminating the LGBTQ+ experience

Thank you to all of the authors who submitted to Blue Light Special. Unfortunately, we did not receive enough submissions of the quality we look for to produce an anthology.

At Dark Owl Publishing, we want to make sure that any diversity anthology we publish is the best of the best. The goal is not to placate to any specific group of people by simply publishing whatever we receive. We pride ourselves in providing readers with high-quality stories that are from authors they may not have heard of before. We believe this strategy is what puts our books above others' in the independent publishing business. It not only helps authors find more readers, but it helps expose readers to a variety of names to continue to explore. We want anyone--author or reader--who picks up a Dark Owl book to know that it is of the highest quality possible.

We cannot thank the talented Max Griffin enough for his help with this anthology. We will try again at some point in the future with Max as the Associate Editor!


Associate Editor of Anthologies

We are looking for self-starting individuals to serve as Associate Editors to Dark Owl Publishing to produce 20- to 25-story anthologies.

Our goal is to give authors and editors the opportunity to helm a project that is meaningful to them and that they believe will have a positive impact on the writing community.

This is a flat-fee paid position and is a large amount of work, but we know that you will find it is truly worth your dedication and passion.

Guest Blogger

As well as publishing books, we enjoy running Off The Wing, our blog for anything concerning writing and books. If you'd like to post on our blog, we'd be happy to hear from you! 

While the blog is basically a free-for-all, we do want the content to stick to writing and books, and we will have to review your piece before posting it. We do ask that your post be completely edited with very minimal editing mistakes.
