A Sale

Talebones Magazine bought my short story, "Floaters," for issue #37, which is tentatively scheduled for late summer or early fall.  January has been outstanding for me.

I just tried to email you back again but got a mailer - daemon message. I'll try again later.

I *know*, yay for January, and good going!

And just think, there's still a few days left of the month, so you have plenty of time for a few more sales *g*

If more people helped spread the word about sales and drummed up interest in the short markets (like you do), I believe the short markets would expand. So many folks make sales and (maybe) make a note on Duotrope or Speculations, and stop there.

Linking from your blog helps the e'zine/magazine's search engine standings, which gets more eyeballs on the pages, which helps to get more subscribers/ad viewers to their front door.

Congrats on the sale, hope your January success is just the beginning of a banner year.

Good idea! Since so few magazines make it to the newstands, the only way people hear about them is word or mouth. Even the biggies are suffering.
