This is going to be short, because I can't say it enough.
Please, read the guidelines before submitting your work not only to us, but to others.
At Bete Noire Magazine, we do NOT condone, or encourage violence against children. Again, we've had a few stories this time out with graphic descriptions surrounding the topic of child killing, child predators, Munchausen Syndrome, etc. Stories like that have, in this humble editor and writers opinion, no merit. It shows a last, desperate attempt of the author to seek out that shock value taboo in hopes to get put into print.
So please, read our guidelines. Not just ours, but anywhere you submit your work.
Remember....be yourself, everyone else is taken.
