BLP is currently accepting engaging stories in search of a great home. Our main themes explore the liminal world where anything can happen. We love authors who are willing to take a chance and explore the concepts of “other” through a variety of genres. Magic isn’t just for fantasy readers anymore.
If you think your manuscript pushes the boundaries and will leave us breathless, we want to hear from you. Although all manuscripts go through an editing process, your book should be at its best before you submit. The best way to be noticed is to send a professional query letter and a strong summary.
I am an Indie Publisher of 3 middle-grade fantasy novels (The Maryalise Trilogy) and a picture book (Who Was There: A Nativity Story for Children). I also write short stories and essays. I blog at rose-the-storylady.com. I am a storyteller and write some of the stories I tell. I am looking to be challenged in a writing group. I am willing to try new ideas for writing.
I was born and raised in the South though I lived in Los Angeles for nearly thirty-five years. I've returned to my roots and now live in North Carolina. I've had three books of poetry published, and a collection of my short fiction, What Shadows Eat & Other Stories, was selected by Yellow Flag Press for their Cypress & Pine Series. I am working on what I hope is the final revision of a novel set in Florida during the Seminole Wars.
I'm starting a chapter of Women Who Submit in Wilmington. We will meet once a month (Zoom now, and in-person as soon as possible) for a submissions party where we will create a library of literary journals, set goals, provide feedback on cover letters, query letters, applications for residencies, and so on.
Please contact me if you live in the area and are interested.
The Twin Bill is a quarterly online literary baseball publication founded in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. We celebrate the rich history of the game while also recognizing its vibrant present through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and visual art. We welcome writers of all levels and experiences. We now pay $5 a poem, $10 for CNF, and $20 for a short story.
We want to hear your story about baseball. It generally helps if you focus on a single game or moment as opposed to listing multiple ones. This issue, we are focusing only on the game today.
I have written poetry all my life and start my writing day in that genre. I am also working on two historical novels, one set in WWII and the other set in the U.S. at the time of the Vietnam war. The WWII novel is close to being finished. The Vietnam novel is in the first draft stage. What I'm looking for: discussion about writing work in those particular eras, any discussion about writing, and critique opportunities, if we can find a reasonable way to accomplish that.
I already belong to a writing group, and they're moving here. But I'm a fanfic writer, so I'd be willing to join up with a group of others. I'm also an Orthodox Jew, so a similar group would definitely attract me.
I write multicultural fiction and have three published novels: Shadows of Damascus, Bitter Almonds and Lost in Thyme. I try to combine my Middle Eastern background with my professional intersts as an engineer and an advoctae for domestic abuse victims in my writing. I'm always looking for ways to learn and improve and would welcome like-minded writers who are willing to give honest feedback.
I am an engineer who is finally getting into writing. I am almost done with the first draft of my first novel, a steampunk mystery set in an alternative Victorian era in what (was) Virginia. I have many other ideas for sequels, other books, and a collection of short stories.
I think that next (while I let my novel sit before editing) I will write one of the short stories and try to submit it to a contest.
I love the research portion, and history especially. Right now while writing I'm also trying to soak up as much as I can learn about the craft, while networking and setting up my brand as an author.
It would be lovely to work with a group on this site.
