  1. I’d be interested in an Easter post about that witchy tradition. Sounds interesting!

    Good work on the anthology. :)

  2. I’ve been thinking about doing some sort of anthology. Good idea? Bad idea? Pros? Cons?

    (By the way, I have a real hard time writing in non-novel format. The whole short story idea is foreign to me).

    • Submitting to anthologies is much like submitting to magazines. You will want to do some research before sending them your “baby.” It’s kinda hard to sum it up, but here are some Pros: getting your stories out there, new readers, pay, publication credit, fun side project from a novel. Cons: many anthologies don’t pay you or reach that many readers, some are hard to get into (might be solicited-only, even) etc. The same rule stands as for magazines: the best ones are hard to get into; the ones that take anyone might not even be worthy of your stories.
