Today I submitted my latest short story, Tuesday Sucked, to thuglit.com.
I think Thug Lit is a good fit, but the search for a publication didn’t go smoothly. When I started my search, my favorite site, http://www.duotrope.com/index.aspx, wasn’t returning anything that seemed quite right. I tried "Writer’s Digest" (print version) with even less success. (It appears to me that "Writer’s Digest" is not set up very well for short fiction.)
I was getting a little desperate (To qualify for a drawing, I had to have my story submitted by the 26th.) when I got an update from Duotrope. (Go to the site, sign up, get the updates.) The update contained a number of sites that were reopening for submissions. There were three on that list that were promising. Thug Lit fits the story perfectly.
Now – I have Christmas Drabble that I need to find a home for. Soon.
As soon as I figure out how to underline on this blog, I will post book titles correctly.
