Short Literature Pro Market ’19 is out!

The new, detailed short form market guide is available now

The newest edition in the Pro Market brand is out and available for purchase this weekend. This new version has even more publishers inside, with the same great detail as the last one. This time you get over 170 profession paying publishers. Something else that’s different about the 2019 edition is that it has been widened to include other types of publishers besides just short stories. It also includes freelance publishers, nonfiction, article segments and more. You can find Short Literature Pro Market 2019 available as an ebook or paperback The current price for the ebook is only $3.99 (normally $6.99) and the sale price for the paperback is $9.99 (normally $13.99). So, it’s a good time to save money too! But act soon because these prices will only be available through the end of February.

SLPM’19 Sales Journey #1

Tracking the sales and marketing for Short Literature Pro Market 2019

This is the first installment/update effort in tracking my sales and marketing efforts for Short Literature Pro Market 2019. As stated in a previous post, I am going to attempt to update my blog semi-regularly with this information. This book is independently published and the only marketing budget is what comes out of my pocket. There is no publishing house budget.

Book Sales Journey

Tracking book sales and marketing for Short Literature Pro Market 2019

Hello all,

I decided I’m going to run a blog series where I document the sales and marketing efforts of my recent works as an independent & self-published author. Many people who have never seen behind the curtain of self-publishing often don’t understand the difficulties of marketing and financing your own books. It is a struggle that is very real and can be very expensive. There are plenty of independently published books that are of the same quality as traditionally published books – but there aren’t usually the same kind of connections and backing to push those books to success.

So, I’m going to share my efforts on my blog every few weeks. What works, what clearly doesn’t. What I’ve tried so far and what I want to try. Also, I will try to stay transparent with the sales numbers and what has been invested. The first book I’m going to track is my newest book currently out for pre-order, Short Literature Pro Market 2019.

Stay tuned!

Short Story Pro Market 2017 ‘End of Summer Sale’

Hellow folks!

I am bringing you word of a big sale on Short Story Pro Market 2017. It is my “End of Summer” sale. Many short form markets open up for a fourth quarter submission period in early to mid-autumn, which makes August a great time for a book sale. This book in particular because it lists over 150 professional paying short form publishers. There’s something inside for everyone: short stories, flash fiction, poetry, interviews, articles, nonfiction, games, art, etc. You will find nearly every genre you’re looking for: science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, mystery, children’s, historical, travel, outdoor, etc. And did you catch the phrase “professional paying?” Yes indeed, the publishers listed inside pay top dollar in the industry for the pieces they publish. That means if you are accepted for publication, you will be paid more than just pennies and free copies. Food for thought, eh? Continue reading “Big Book Sale”
