Friday Finds!

Here's the latest round of things I found interesting, useful, or worthy of passing on this week:

Phaze call for submissions

Phaze Raven - Halloween/Horror
Deadline: June 1, 2009

Good advice on submitting for anthologies from Samhain

A look at story length from Obsidian Bookshelf – are novellas the new black?

Here’s some story fodder for you: Babies switched at birth found out 56 years later

How to avoid the pitfalls of first person narrative – by Julie Ann Dawson

Via Lisa J Jackson on Twitter – a PDF to editable text converter


Galen Kindley said...

I loved the PDF converter, been looking for something exactly like that. Thank you for digging up that link.

Now, before I was recessionized, I would sent you a hundred, no...two hundred bucks for such a useful find. (Well, I woulda wanted to.) I guess now, you'll just get a not so useful, but sincere, smile.

Best Regards, Galen

Really enjoyed the link about first-person narratives... This one directly applies to my WIP.

Karen Walker said...

Amazing story about babies switched at birth and finding each other 56 years later. I saw them interviewed - they've actually joined families.

Some good links -- and markets!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Thanks for all the great links the last couple of days, Elle. You've led me to sites I didn't know anything about.


Marvin D. Wilson said...

Lots of useful links here, and a good info-packed post. Thanks!

Jina Bacarr said...

A super variety of links--all of them useful. You've done a great job. Thankz!


Elle Parker said...

Galen, a smile will always be enough!

Alexis - I snagged that link because it applied to my book too *g*

Karen - OH cool! Thanks for the update on that story!

And for the rest - I'm so glad I could offer up some useful stuff.
