Longshot Island magazine is relatively new and I had the pleasure of reading the first issue. On their website, you’ll find plenty of information including:
Stinkwaves is a PG-13 literary magazine and where my latest publication can be found. I discovered this magazine when I was looking for child-friendly publications for a spooky poem I’d written for a Halloween last year. The poem was part of a Spooky Stories night that I was attending and it had been sitting on my laptop ever since.
Visual Verse is a collaboration. An anthology of art, poetry, short fiction, and non-fiction. They supply a compelling image and invite writers – published or unpublished – to submit a piece in response. There is a catch though and you must write it within one hour and it must be between 50 and 500 words.
Today I want to talk about the Wildflower Muse submission guidelines and share my wonderful publication news with you all. I came across Wildflower Muse while browsing through Duotrope. It was actually the first journal that I submitted poetry to when I began my journey back in April. I sent three poems on the 21st of April and received an email on the 26th of April to say that they would like to publish my poem “Mornings”. To say I was thrilled is an understatement. I was absolutely over the moon, and it reinforced my desire to see my work in print.
Today I am celebrating another publishing success. My poem titled, “The Book” has been published in the Summer 2016 edition of the Mused BellaOnline Literary Review. This was my second time to submit to this magazine and I am delighted to be featured alongside some great writers.
Publishing Success – Having Your Writing Accepted
Life takes over some times and I for one am not immune to this. My blog has lain here dormant for quite some time now and I do apologise to those who subscribed to receive updates. It has been a very busy year so far with work and clients and my time seems to have been spent on this and family. I’m not complaining though, life is good, great in fact, and I am just now getting back to doing what I love most and that is writing. In doing that I want to share my latest publishing success story.
I know that I have been quiet for the past week or so but that is because I have been so busy. I had lots of client work which is always a good complaint and I have been listening to all the amazing interviews in the Hay House World Summit 2015. This is a free event that ran over the month of May and featured 100 interviews with Hay House authors and speakers. It was fantastic and there was so much information to absorb. There were some great movies to watch too and I enjoyed these every evening. If you are a fan of Louise Hay or Dr. Wayne Dyer you will probably have heard of this event and more than likely spent a great deal of time listening to all the wonderful interviews just like I did.
As writers, especially those looking to break into the traditional publishing arena, it is important to keep an eye on the publishers that are accepting submission. Below I have information on two different publishers that are accepting submissions for fiction books.
The first of these is Barbarian Books. They are an ebook only traditional publisher and they pay 70% royalties. They don’t charge any fees, ever. They publish original genre novel length fiction including: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, Romance, Mystery, Westerns and Cross-Genre. They require completed novel length manuscripts and they are always open to submission. You can find all the details on their website: http://www.barbarianbooks.com
