What were your favorite Christmas-themed TV specials or movies when you were a kid? Do you still enjoy those same ones as an adult? What's the greatest Christmas movie of all time, in your opinion?
Charlie Brown, no question. :) I still love it as an adult. My favorite Christmas movie of all time is Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol.' I'm also fond of 'Home Alone' and the original 'Die Hard.'

Smashwords is a company that enables writers to self-publish and distribute their books to different booksellers. Alas, Amazon does not seem to be one of the sellers, though Barnes & Noble is.

I am planning out how to publish a book of my poetry through them. Alternatively, I could see what
AllPoetry has available.

Manuscript Wish List This is a place to find literary agents who are looking for particular sorts of books. Great resource!

I figure I might as well start small, with this market. It pays SFWA rates. Flash Fiction Online.

“Number 30 Bury Street, where it intersects with Ryder,” Paul told the cabbie as he shut the door. “I’ll be bringing a birdcage with bird back down with me. I promise he won’t be in your cab for long.”

“It’s not a parrot, is it?” the cabbie asked, sounding dubious.

“Worse. It’s a raven,” Paul assured him. “Hide anything that’s loose and shiny, just on general principle.”

“I hope you have enough quid to afford me, guv,” the cabbie replied, and they headed off.

THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PROFESSOR MORIARTY ADVENTURES

This is an anthology of brand new material I have been asked to edit for Constable Robinson.

I am seeking original stories to feature Professor Moriarty (preferably not always involving Sherlock Holmes, but can feature other characters who’ve appeared in the Sherlockian canon, such as Lestrade, Irene Adler, Mycroft, etc…). Ideal length between 4,000 and 7,500 words.

Rights required are non-exclusive World English language anthology rights, with an option for foreign language translation within the anthology should offers be made for overseas editions.

Delivery (submission deadline): 15th February 2015. I will accept email submissions (in Word doc).

Payment £130 (or, at current exchange rate $215) on publication.

Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime, is a familiar character, although he only actually appeared in two Sherlock stories (and countless later pastiches by other pens…). I am seeking a broad mix of stories in which he can alternately appear in his guise as a master criminal, or even as a fallible human being (I am retaining the option to write the ‘Moriarty In Love’ story myself), but more importantly I am hoping the stories I am sent will be entertaining, ingenious, and witty as well as gripping.

If the project tickles your fancy, do let me know well in advance that you are hoping to do a story so I can plan the project and keep a slot open for you.

This call for submissions is not just going out to crime and mystery writers, but also authors in other fields in order to have sufficient diversity and ‘voices’.

If you have any queries beforehand do get in touch with me at maxim.jakubowski@gmail.com

A non-paying market, and they do not appear to be publishing, as of 04/17/2016.

Fantasy Factor - I'm not sure what this site is all about yet, but it does provide a very useful list of the categories of fantasy fiction.

The markets listed in this poetry blog post will publish poetry that has previously appeared in blogs or elsewhere on the Internet.

What three things in this scene are unique to where it is set? What makes this definitely New England and not Pennsylvania? What makes this the home of my evil priest and no one else's?

Wow. I can actually answer that question in Tarran's case. *is relieved*.

This looks pretty fascinating.

Submission Guidelines

Their Call for Submissions
Their submission guidelines

Authenticity mavens--but in a good way. They want high-quality attention to historical detail, and it shows in their submission guidelines. I don't know if I will ever write for them, but I hope I will.

They don't yet appear to be a market approved by SFWA for their membership qualifications, but I think they might make it if they maintain high standards of writing and historical accuracy.

The SF/F Writers of America will increase to $0.06/word what they consider to be the standard pay rate for professionally-published short stories in July 2014.

To be accepted into SFWA, you must have sold at least three short stories at the standard professional pay rate.

Sort of like Short Story Writer's Market, but a lot shorter.

Ralan's List of Pro Markets for short stories.

Story Length: 17,000 words or less
Prizes: $1,000, $750, and $500. Annual Grand Prize of $5,000.
Note: At 8 cents/word, a short story of 12,500 words pays $1000.
Deadlines: March 31, June 30, September 30, December 31.
