Other Stuff Today

Because it seemed awkward and tasteless to stick any of this in the last post . . .

Welcome Ms. Mona, follower number 5! I think she may be Homer Simpson's Reno wife, though I'm not sure

Market listings for you spec fiction writers out there. Do you use Duotrope? I hear Ralan mentioned a lot and I don't use Duotrope exclusively, but there are a lot of things I like about this market listing. You can seek out markets by genre and story length, sort by payscale, see how long a magazine's average response is and its acceptance rate. I like to use a few different market lists because if you stick to just one, you'll definitely miss out on some. I also use StoryPilot and of course I bookmark pages of mags that I don't find through any of these sites.

The link for voting for the Sofanauts Awards is up again, for the moment. Please vote if you haven't yet done so.
