Barry Skelhorn | 39 comments Hi, Sanitarium is pushing to raise funds to build native apps for Newsstand, Google Play and Kindle Fire newsstand. We want to get our contributors work out to the masses so we can start paying them for their work. Any help would be appreciated getting our Kickstarter project out into the wild. Many thanks.

message 23: by Justin (new)

Justin (justinbienvenue) | 2788 comments Hey Barry,
Do you feature promotions or small segments on books in the magazine?


message 24: by Barry (new)

Barry Skelhorn | 39 comments Hi Justin, we do low cost advertising for writers. A double spread inside cover is $50, a full page is $40, half is $20 and a quarter page is $10 (all with supplied artwork)

If you don't have artwork we can do this on a quote basis. If you are interested please PM me and I'll get more details your way. We only have a handful of spaces so not to distract from the stories.

Also if you have a book to review we will add it to the list if you are able to supply a copy.

Regards

Barry Skelhorn.

You can even read it on your PC or Mac. It’s that easy to dive into these short horror reads. Discover new authors and awake new nightmares for just a few bucks. Sound too crazy to be true? Welcome to the Sanitarium.

“One of the great things about Sanitarium Magazine is the effort they put into discovering new authors. Many horror magazines favor work of King or other "proven" authors, but by reaching out the the next generation, Sanitarium opens the door to really new ideas.” - DL SHANNON // DEVER, CO

“Sanitarium is an excellent high quality horror magazine full of new, emerging writers and some old faces. All the stories are very good. However, my personal favourite by Lex Sinclair stands out as the best. It has elements of Edgar Allen Poe.” - SAM // LONDON, UK
