A Bucket of Byline Opportunities (And a Free Book!)

ImageGosh, we’re barreling into the end of the month and that means deadlines! So perhaps we should start with today’s deadline.

Simmer down, now, you don’t have to write anything for this deadline. But you do have to hustle over to Amazon (and yes, I know some of us are all in a snit about Amazon, but this is a FREE book so it’s not like we’re helping Amazon, right?)

Anyway, the book. It’s called Getting Published:How To Access Editors and it’s by Laura Purdie Salas who’s a poet, educator, and writer for children. And she also works as a mentor (Mentors for Rent) and writes books about the writing business. (See Getting Published: How to Access Editors). To be honest, we don’t have time to go on and on about how wonderful Laura is because that book’s only free TODAY.

Now the next deadline, I’m afraid, is coming up at the end of the month. But the topic is Potty Training (And Other Bathroom Mishaps). I mean, who doesn’t have a couple potty training/bathroom mishaps? I’m sure you can flush something out in no time at all. All you need is a can-do attitude. (Okay, I’ll stop now. But you have to admit I was on a roll. Um…yeah. Stopping now for reals.)

And now you have a bit of a breather because you have almost a month (Yay! A whole month!) to get your story for the latest call out from Mozark Press. This time around, the Shaker of Margaritas editors are looking for stories about That Mysterious Woman. And I’m not going to lie. I have quite the story for this anthology. Bwahahahahaaa.

You, however, are probably going to have to write something. So maybe you should get busy.

  1. With everything that’s going on right now, I’m having a hard time focusing on my book. These opportunities sound like the perfect thing! Thanks for passing them on, Cath!

  2. I’ve been working on the Mozark Press dealio. Never written a mystery before, so this is a learning curve, but it’s fun so far. Now if I can just figure out how its going to end. 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to see your mysterious woman story, Cathy. Hey, Lisa, I hope your story ends with a bang! Get it? Guns? Bang? Haha? Okay, never mind. I’m polishing up a story for the anthology, too. Now I just have to give it that final polish and send it off. But summer days are dragging me away from my computer. Someone crack a whip at me and get me working!

  4. Cracking the whip on the whole lot of you! Let’s make a pact that we’ll write up something bang-bang mysterious and get in this anthology together. Off we go! Let’s write this thing! 🙂
