Last week I promised I would send out my favorite short story market research link to AAAWG. I’ve finally gotten around to it.
Jim Van Pelt had a post on LiveJournal yesterday linking to an announcement of novella length SF and Fantasy anthology / market that is open for submissions. I’ve added Alembical at Paper Golem to my market research links and am currently reviewing my novella length stories to see which one I would like to submit. I would like to submit “Up in the Nightgaunts Gang”, but it needs a polish pass, and at 18,500 words, is a little short of the 20,000 word minimum that Alembical is looking for. But given my prior track record and writing process, it is likely that it will break the minimum by the time I am done polishing.
Now that I have a number of short storys from loitering on my disk I thought I would start putting them ‘out there’. In order to facilitate this I find myself doing a bit of market research, the upshot of which is that I created a wiki page to store notes and links. This page will probably grow with my desperation time. So stay tuned.
