A Market and Links

I found a new zine market - and it pays!! "Untied Shoelaces of the Mind" pays 3cents a word up to $30 for stories from 100 - 2000 words. Best of all? It's a genre market looking for Romance/ Action-Adventure / Thriller / Mystery/ Sci-fi and Fantasy/ Humor / Literary / Horror. To quote the site "...we're looking for fiction so dark, twisted or just plain tasty that I lose sleep after reading them." They're now open to submissions for their first quarterly issue due out in 2010. You do need to sign into the site as they have an online submission form. There are also stories by the editor posted on site so you can see what they're looking for.

And a few links:

Over at Criminal Brief, Deborah Elliot-Upton gives us a little history of The Gift of Murder's publisher, Wolfmont Publishing.

Bev Vincent gives us an excellent essay about the hazards of being a vacationing writer over at Storytellers Unplugged.

For your morning chuckles, Jason Sanford riffs off the recent essay "I will not read your F**king Script" that I linked to earlier this week.

Thanks for the paying market links, Sandra. A few dollars is an excellent incentive.
