Writing Again and A Bit About My Magazine
In other worlds, I'm an editor of a fledgling sci-fi and fantasy short story magazine called MYTHIC: A Quarterly Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine. As of this writing, I'm working on getting out issue #7, the Summer 2018 issue. I'm behind schedule with releases due to the personal situations that occurred earlier in the year.
I enjoy reading the stories but it is tough to put the magazine together and I'm sort of limited with what I can do based on a lack of any real budget. At this point, looking for ways to more fully fund MYTHIC so I can pay authors at professional level rates, the sort that get you noticed by the industry and groups like SFWA.
That's my dream for the magazine anyways.
Founders House Publishing, which currently has all published issues of MYTHIC plus a 4-issue bundle of the first year's worth of the magazine. (Use the Code: MYTHIC40 to get 40% off!)
That's the thing about all of this, I'm always learning something. In fact, I need to keep learning in this business just so I have a chance of making the sort of progress I want. The next thing I will do with MYTHIC is offer ebook subscriptions using Payhip's subscriber option. Very cool and simple way to deliver subscribers their books once I get it up and running. This will be an incentive for international subscribers to pick it up without paying the hefty costs of shipping print editions. This sort of saddens me because of my love for print, but, at the same time, I want to share these stories with as many people as I can.
I want MYTHIC to thrive and there's lots of work to be done to make the possible.
Thanks for reading. Check out MYTHIC.
