MediaShift . The Pitfalls of Using Self-Publishing Book Packages | PBS
The rise of self-publishing has made it possible for anyone to be an author. Now, some people are also choosing to outsource their book project by hiring an author services company.

My Writing Nook: Publishing on a shoestring budget
For the longest time, there were only two paths to publication.

The first was the so-called “traditional” route, in which an author spent months or years searching for an agent, who then spent months or years shopping the book around to various publishers, in the hope that one of them would purchase it and publish it after several more months or years.

For those that did not want to wait that long, there was the self-publishing option. However, this option was an expensive one, and the upfront expense was entirely the author’s responsibility. Most authors could not afford such an endeavor, and so they put their dreams of publication on hold.

Thankfully, the past few years have brought around a revolution in the publishing industry. The Internet, eBooks, and the rise of print-on-demand publishers have helped to remove the financial barrier to self-publication.

Submission Guidelines | site-specific
We are always interested in new short stories. If you have authored short stories that entertain and/or lift, we would love to hear from you. StoriesThatLift.com is a family oriented site with content for children, youth, and adults. We will only consider stories we consider to be child-safe. Child-safe is a judgment we make that a story is safe for children to read.

Submissions Guidelines » Axiom’s Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy
Axiom’s Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy is looking for short story submissions that will be considered for an eBook collection that we will publish later this year. Short stories should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words and should fall within the genres of science fiction, speculative fiction, fantasy, supernatural, horror and pretty much anything that contains elements of the fantastic.

Also, we are looking for micro-story submissions as well. These will range around 600 words with a max of 800 and a minimum of 400. These can be stories or sketches or verbal illustrations but they must have some sort of point and some form of “aha” moment for the reader.
