one short story

Are you still trying to find a way to get your stories

Is there a quicker, more lucrative way to

Dear Fellow Author,
A few short years ago, I was asking myself many of those same
questions. I wanted to know how I could get my foot in the
publishing 'door'. I was curious about how I could get my own books
to sell well, and how I could get readers to recognize my name as
being synonymous with an author they could trust.
I also wanted to know what I could do to improve my writing to such
a degree that editors would
rejecting my stories.
That's when I learned that editors love to see submissions from
writers who have already had short fiction published in other
You see, for more than two years, I studied what the editors wanted
and what kinds of stories they would accept. I interviewed editors
and agents to learn about their likes, dislikes and preferences. I
asked magazine publishers and feature editors what made them buy the
stories they chose. I attended conventions and seminars, trying to
figure out why some authors could sell anything they wrote and
others just kept collecting rejection slips.
What I learned surprised me!
In fact, I think it will surprise you, too. You see, it is true that
almost anyone can write a story - but it really does take something
special to turn that story into a paid publication credit that you
can add to a professional author's bio to further your career!
Tamara Anatolievna, Texas, USA writes:
I had been struggling
to get an editor interested in my novel for two years.
But after I'd read Lee's book about selling short
fiction, I took her great advice about how and what I
should submit. I wrote and sold four short stories in
just a month. Once I'd added those publishing credits
into my cover letter, my novel sold straight away!
Yvonne McSherry of Glasgow, Scotland writes:
I'd always thought nobody bought short stories anymore.
I considered writing them was a waste of time and so I
concentrated on my novels. That was until I received a
check for $2,000 for one short story! I've since learned
it's easy to make thousands of dollars by selling and
re-selling short stories all over the world! It's just
so easy. Now editors stand up and take notice when I
send novel manuscripts to them. This book really opened
my eyes about my writing career.
