|I submitted two stories today, the flogger one to Torquere, and another one to Eros.Com, so I'm feeling pretty good. Now I need to start getting my act together for my reading at Saints and Sinners. I assume that I'll have five minutes. That's about 800 words. Hopefully I can get the introduction to Words Like Candy Conversation Hearts and the last part of the story in under that time. |
Readings are my least favorite thing to do, but it's such a good way to let people have a taste without pushing a book at them that they won't read. I'm lucky being relatively unknown, because the organizers try to make the panel a good mix, so I might end up reading in a tiem slot with a couple well-known names. Either that, or I'll be in a half-empty room early Sunday morning before anyone wakes, and I can't see a downside to that.
