Hello and welcome to our brand new contest! When your life takes a turn for the worse, it's up to you to decide what to do about it. Become a demon hunter in The Demon's Pact contest!


PROMPT:


Life as a demon hunter can be tough. Little pay, annoying work companions and of course, the demons. When you're hired to exorcise a notorious demon for a payload that'll have you retiring early, you jump at the chance.

Botching up the exorcism was the last thing you wanted and in a hasty move to save yourself, you do the unthinkable. You make a pact with a demon.

How will you fare with a demon looming over your shoulders? Will you break the pact, fulfil it or escape it all? It's up to you to decide.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


Q: Help! I've gone over the word count, what do I do?

A: If you've gone over the word count, don't fret! We understand that it's hard to write within a specific word count. We will accept entries that go over the word limit (1200 words) by +/- 100 words. However, we encourage you to try and keep your entry within the word limit as if we find that you have gone over the word limit and your entry could have been told in fewer words, you will lose points.


Q: Can I split my entry into many different chapters?

A: Because this is a one-shot contest, we will not accept entries that have been split into different chapters. Your entry must be condensed into a single chapter.


Q: Can I add my entry to an anthology of short stories/contest entries or must it be contained in a single book?

A: It's up to you! You can make a new book just for your contest entry or you can choose to add your story to an anthology. Please note that you must mark your entry clearly if you do include it in an anthology, so our judges can find it easier.


Q: Can my story be written in a different language?

A: Unfortunately, we will only accept English entries. Your story can contain snippets or dialogues in other languages, provided there is a translation given for them.


Q: Can my entry contain more than one genre?

A: Yes! Your story must qualify as paranormal, but that doesn't prevent you from including sub-genres.


Q: Are there any specific tags that I must include?

A: There are no tags you have to use. But if you want to, you can include #DemonPactContest to your entry to make it easier to find your entry and if you really want to share your story with us, just add a link to your entry in the comments below!
