Hi Paul, I love the work you've done in "Fingerprints." I'm Cher, the assistant editor of a new crime fiction podcast, www.crimecitycentral.com , looking for new authors and stories. We seek short stories, 3000 - 10,000 words (loose guideline), prefer published, but self-pub, ePub and indie pub all counts. Our show is free, so we can't pay for stories. We do have exceptionl narrators who will make your story magical. Have a listen via iTunes or Stitcher and give it some thought. I do hope to hear from you.

Hi Paul,

 

I'm the European editor for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some more stories from the UK for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.

 

Thank you,

Alan

Oh man!  Could I tell you stories about Lit Agents!  Horror stories--complete with boxes of popcorn and 3-D glasses! (grinning)

Thankyou for the invitation! I really must get down to some 'proper' writing when life settles into a new 'normal routine'!
