I Want to Get Published

What do New York literary agents,editors and publishers look for in new writers? 125 People

    Already Am

      In fact, I usually have something published at least once a month.  What I'd really like, though, it have something that finds its way to the New York Times bestseller list.

    The Quickest Rejection Yet

    This place only took a week to send my story around to four editors who all said no. Eight more will give me 16 and I will then learn to play "Hospital Roll Call" on the guitar and sing it like Lanegan. I'm starting to feel the discouragement at 7 rejections...

    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!

    Never Enough.

    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
