Thoughts in Passing

I've been pondering what percentage of my "writing time" I should put toward publicity/marketing/selling, and what does that look like for me anyway? Submitting stories, absolutely. This markets newsletter, probably. My much-delayed author newsletter, definitely (oops, I keep postponing it!). Updating the back copy of my post-apocalyptic book and doing some fiddling with distribution channels? Yes, but is enhancing my back catalog a priority?

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

Mostly I've been going crazy because I'm not writing new fiction. I've been knee deep in photo edits for a major project and I'm not done yet. I've drafted and submitted class proposals for the literary center where I occasionally teach. I've worked on getting my convention schedule sorted. And I've been studying up on the Maya underworld so I can write the next scene in my main novel project. All the while, I'm also feeling the itch of other stories that need to be revised and submitted. Never enough time!

Featured Market
Blind Spot wants original science fiction and fantasy stories.

Actually, Blind Spotís purpose is not only to publish French science fiction in English. The Angle Mort team thinks that science fiction is a genre that is growing and evolving all over the world, and that creates ties between science, art, and literature--and even better, to redefine the boundaries between these mediums. That is why limiting our work to only one form of science fiction doesnít make sense. Therefore, the main goal of Angle Mort, through its French and its English magazines, is to explore the ties between these media. The concept of Blind Spot magazine is the following: 4 short stories written or translated in English, a cover by an artist who explores science fiction ideas or concepts, and an introduction prepared by the Angle Mort team.

Basics:SFF in English or French, 10,000 max, no reprints, pays $.08+/word. Guidelines: http://blindspot.pub/guidelines/
