NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Every Day Fiction Again

screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-17-18-43Once upon a time I used to have loads of short story and poetry submissions on the go (I think the most I ever had out at the same time was 40). In recent years, however, this flood has dwindled to a mere trickle, mainly – I suppose – because I started getting proper books published.

I do still get a kick out of getting short stuff out there, though, particularly on places like Every Day Fiction, because you get to find out very soon what people think of your work – even if it isn’t always the reaction you were hoping for. So I was very pleased to get an acceptance from them for a piece I sent them recently called ‘Too Old for Suzuki.’ It’s a very slight piece, heavy on the dialogue with not a lot actually happening, so it may get some stick from the readers, but I still like it a lot. I’ll put up a link when it goes live.

  1. I’ve written loads of short stories and four novels but I’ve never submitted anything because I don’t know how (I published one of my novels myself as therapy while recovering from an accident but I didn’t know how to sell it so no one bought it) how does one submit things? Where does one find out where to submit things? Can anyone submit things or does one have to be known already?

    Hi Kate, and thanks for dropping in. Good questions, and I’m wondering if it might not be a bad idea to put up a new blog post in response, because you’re not the first person to ask this. Can you hold on until tomorrow? I’ll see if I can put something together.
