    I've already written three books.

    Two are in a series, with my longtime friend, and the third is all me. I want one of them to get published so badly!

    Horror Markets?

    It seems a lot of magazines that publish short horror are on backlog. And there aren't a lot of magazines that seem to publish short fiction without being an established writer anymore. An endless struggle this seems. -Endless
