DIABOLICAL PLOTS 
http://www.diabolicalplots.com/guidelines/ 
In 2015, Diabolical Plots began publishing original fiction, one story per month. In the last submission window, we bought a year’s worth, enough to last through February 2016. This time we intend fill in stories for at least the six months after that. Genres: science fiction, fantasy, horror (everything must have speculative element, even horror). Two thousand words or less. Pays six cents/word. Deadline July 31, 2015.



PSEUDOPOD 
http://pseudopod.org/guidelines/
 Pseudopod is a genre magazine in audio form. We’re looking for horror: dark, weird fiction. We run the spectrum from grim realism to crime drama, to magic-realism, to blatantly supernatural dark fantasy. We publish highly literary stories reminiscent of Poe or Lovecraft as well as vulgar shock-value pulp fiction. We don’t split hairs about genre definitions, and we do not observe any taboos about what kind of content can appear in our stories. We pay the pro rate of $.06/word for original fiction up to a cap of 6,000 words, $100 flat rate for reprints, and $20 flat rate for flash fiction (stories below 1,500 words).

CHRONICLE BOOKS – CHILDREN
 http://www.chroniclebooks.com/our-company/submissions/childrens 
Chronicle Books publishes an eclectic mixture of traditional and innovative children’s books. We are looking for projects that have a unique bent—be it in subject matter, writing style, or illustrative technique—and that will lend our list a distinctive flair. We are interested in fiction and nonfiction books for children of all ages as well as board books, decks, activity kits, and other unusual or “novelty” formats.
