I had an e-mail from Heidi Heimler stating her The Linnet's Wings summer edition Micro, SNOWMAN, is available on Amazon as a Kindle read (99 cents). This is the way for Heidi to make a couple of bucks and for TLW to build a new reading audience. My note to Heidi:
CONGRATULATIONS! I bought SNOWMAN and reviewed it. Absolutely perfect example of Micro writing and good exposure for TLW. Thank you for writing and submitting it.
MONEY FOR WRITING??????? Are my ears playing tricks?????? Seriously, it's a wonderful idea and thanks for posting this Ray.
Good work, Ramon. This is promising.
what! i'll put my linnet's wings story there too! $$$ maybe i can fund my jelly belly addiction at last. a great idea.
I've been workin' my head to the bone since 1997 as an online hobby-writer. Expenses: approximately $1,500 -- incoming, a hefty $125.
Face it, no one is going to make a living as a fiction writer without an agent and agents have closets full of hard copy submissions. If you can pick up an electronic buck here and there, you're damn lucky.
The Internet is a fantasy world from Fantasy Facebook (where the bored meet the boring) to Fantasy Football to Fantasy Porn; and, I fear, Fantasy Fiction for Fantasy E-zines.
Folks jist don't read much no more. :o)
