We're going to have a Murder at The Beach: Bouchercon 2014 short story anthology!

What could be more fun than a little Murder at The Beach?

I am excited to announce we are now accepting submissions for the first ever Bouchercon short story anthology to be published for Bouchercon 2014 – Long Beach.  Editing the anthology is Dana Cameron, winner of multiple Anthony, Agatha, and Macavity awards, and it will include short stories from all of our Bouchercon 2014 Guests of Honor; Jeffery Deaver, J.A. Jance, Edward Marston, Eoin Colfer, and Simon Wood.

If you’d like to submit your Murder at the Beach themed story for consideration, it should be between 3,500 and 5,500 words, must be original and not previously published anywhere else.  Be sure to carefully follow the manuscript guidelines, which will be adhered to without exception.  Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2014.

All proceeds from the sale of the Murder at The Beach Bouchercon 2014 Anthology will go to the Long Beach Public Library Foundation.
