Whoopsy - A Little Beauty and a Few Links

So I'm a day late, but I figured I'd rather post late than not post. Here's a view of Pikes Peak from my hike yesterday. We've had gorgeous weather this week. The snow and nasty temperatures will return, so I've tried to be outdoors every day to soak up a little sun and a lot of fresh air.

Without further ado, the links. I'm not personally endorsing these, merely passing them along. Be sure to do your due diligence before submitting to a publication.

Great view!
I'm amazed how many of those places taking submissions you find.

I love the hiking in Colorado but the lovely views are so distracting. Wish we'd get a break from the cold and snow.

I'm looking for someone accepting a full length novel. But thanks for the links just the same.

I would love to be able to see that view in real life.

What a gorgeous picture. I always enjoy blue skies.
The YA anthology you mentioned looks interesting. I don't see a lot of journals/anthologies for adult writers of kidlit.

What a wonderful view to enjoy while hiking. Thanks for all of the links.

A lot of them are ones I find while looking for somewhere to submit one of my stories. They may not work for me, but that doesn't mean they won't work for me.

I do love the mountains! Our winter weather has been so up and down.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Hm, I come across a lot of those, but have chosen to just post those seeking short fiction (or I'd have double the links). A lot of the places I link to take both. Especially if Publishing or Literary is in the title. Either way, good luck! I'll try to notate if they also take novels from now on.

Shannon Lawrence said...

I would gladly take you on a hike to show you!

I'm a total sucker for a blue sky. I don't run across a lot of publications for authors of kidlit, and some of the ones I've run across seem to be in permanent limbo (I have a spreadsheet, and there are several where the websites have been in stasis, though I keep going in to check if they're accepting again--Spellbound is one.) Then again, I'm not looking for kidlit, so I may just not be coming across them.

It's a nice reward for making it up the hill. Sometimes, when I have too little time, I just go to the top of the hill and sit on a rock at the top to look at Pikes Peak for a few. It may be the closest to meditation I get.
