Fiction Publishers List- Find a home for your book!

  A few weeks ago I reposted a list of SFF magazines ranked from best to worst accepting submissions here.

These publishers accept submissions from un-agented authors, and judging by the names of some of them, … Continue reading Fiction Publishers List- Find a home for your book!

Tuesday Frippery: I write like…

Your significant other rolls over and somehow ignores the child and the wailing now coming through the nursery monitor. There’s a book sitting on your bedside table; you’re on page two.
