The Count is UP!

Response to our Call for Submissions has been wonderful! So wonderful, in fact, that we've been able to persuade the publisher to make a few increases around here. (It's about time!)

First, we are all going to get more padding for our chairs. It will be such a relief. We're almost out of Blister-Aides!

Next, and far more importantly for you, the publisher said your stories have been so good, he wants to see MORE ... so if you haven't sent a submission in yet, now is a good time to do so! Submission guidelines are at

We have also increased the word count requirement. You now have 1000 - 4000 words per story ... and we would like to see closer to 4000 than 1000.

Don't forget, you are allowed to submit two different pieces. Feel free to either submit them both at the same time, or submit one, see how it fares, and then try the second one. We would actually recommend the latter. Regardless of whether we accept or reject your piece, we will, as much as possible, give you our comments on it. Sometimes, comments on the first submission can apply to the second as well, giving you a better chance for opportunity with the second piece.

Last, and even more far more importantly for all of us, I have been asked to let you know that there is a career job opportunity for Booking Director that is now available at OHP (Open Heart Publishing ... the publisher of An Honest Lie.) So, if you, or anyone you know might be interested, please visit OHP at (click on "Opportunities at OHP" at top right.)
