Dead markets through 2/08/2016 - AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.ods | AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.xls
When I first started writing, I had no idea where to begin in creating an author bio. Now I do, so I'm sharing what I've learned!
What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:
I'm preparing to teach a class on submitting science fiction and fantasy short stories (the above article on creating an author bio is part of that).
This Sunday, I'm performing at an acquaintance's book release
party, which will feature an extravaganza of art and music and speculative
fiction. Should be awesome! If you're in the vicinity of the Twin
Cities, you should check it out: http://www.meetup.com/MinnSpec/events/232398314/

Featured Market Brave Boy World anthology
(Pink Narcissus Press) seeks science fiction with a transgender male protagonist, pays $100.
Stories must fall into the category of science
fiction (hard or soft), and must feature a transgender male protagonist.
Given the nature of speculative fiction, however, we are willing to
consider stories that feature non-binary, intersex or genderfluid
characters, but for this project, any non-binary character should either
identify strongly as male, or the story should deal with themes of what
it means to be "masculine" or a "man" in terms of the world setting in
which the story takes place.The
basics: themed SF, 20,000 - 40,000
words, pays an advance against royalties or a flat rate TBD, no reprints.
No erotica. Furthermore, stories that fetishize
trans people will be rejected forthwith with a salty response from one
of the editors.
Basics: SF with transman protagonist, open wordcount, reprints okay, pays $100 ($50 for reprints). Guidelines: http://www.pinknarc.com/submissions.html
