Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

It's been a long time since I posted to this thread, but I feel that I must. Editor's telling me that he enjoyed my story, it held his attention right up to the end, and he goes on to say that it was his favorite for the week. He doesn't buy it, though. (sigh) Give me form acceptances, any time. Sh...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 34

Finally sat down and wrote a story I've been meaning to write since August. A little over 1400, all today. I've submitted it to my Writer's Group for Critique at the end of the month. I'll definitely be submitting it for this Quarter. wotf024

Does Anyone Have Advice on Marketing A Self-Published Book?

I've tried contacting reviewers who review indy published books. I boosted my Facebook Writer's Page, I have a Twitter account, and I've paid Book Daily for some marketing. It seems most places are out of price reach.

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 do...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

I have to get started on mine. I'm writing a story based of a friend's song. It won't include the lyrics and I have her permission. She just sent me the lyrics so I can refer to them for story points.

Looks like F&SF is about 3 days, which is awesome.

Seems like Clarkesworld has a similar submission system.


Clarkeworld also responds in about 3 days.

F&SF is pretty quick on response time for electronic subs, so you may be able to still submit here if they don't take it.
