This cannot go in any other thread... So I searched the name of my DSF story "These are the Rules of Being a Hero" and found that someone decided to narrate the story and put it up on YouTube. It is gorgeous. This guy has an amazing voice. Seriously, it's only a few minutes long. Listen......

Re: Five Minute Rant

I decided it was time to go back to the drawing board. The writing that made up my story turned out to be almost a mess. So I redid the opening. Started the story later and it's more condensed. Or so I hope. The next section may stay pretty much the same. I won't say what it involves since I may se...

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

Ok, I took a big leap last week. After my Novelette exhausted all markets I could find for it, and noticing that Novelettes are sold by themselves as eBooks, I went ahead and self-published it. It has grown about 3000 words since it's earlier incarnation and grown a subtitle, as I've decided I'll d...

Re: Highest Paying Publishers

One more thing to add. Always become familiar with the stories of a particular magazine before you submit! A great story will be perfect for some and unusable for others. For instance, Clarkesworld. I don't think they'd take any of the stories that have won WotF, because Clarkesworld has a very part...

Re: Story Titling

When I first started writing I would agonize over titles. I couldn't think up decent ones to save my life. I'd slap a generic one-word at the top of the manuscript and be done with it. But since I started writing seriously (er, obsessively?), titles come more and more easily. I actually enjoy coming...
