As the mystery editor for Elm Books, I put together a number of anthologies every year. I love to work with new writers, as well as experienced ones. If you have a short mystery story looking for a home, please check my Write With Me page as I post regular submission calls. Our anthologies pay a share of royalties, and appear in both print and ebook formats.
