eFiction Magazine

Cool!  eFiction Magazine has included a story of mine, “Another Twenty-Five Minutes”, in its August edition.  It’s free to read on-line or download.  Consider getting a free subscription.  eFiction provides a platform for some very creative indie writers.

Being included in eFiction is cool for a number of reasons.  The first is that sort of positive lift from having your work accepted and published.  Self-publishing is great, but having someone else judge the value of your work and finding it acceptable lends a certain positivity factor to the experience.

Then there’s the community aspect of eFiction.  Doug Lance has worked very hard to create a safe place where authors can mingle, share ideas, and discuss issues related to writing.  I’ve joined writer’s groups at several other sites and to tell the truth, they’ve all turned me off.   They’re usually so wrapped up in the parochial interests of a small clique of pedantic, self-engrossed contributors that it’s almost impossible to participate or get any acknowledgement that you have participated.  I can’t stand that type of environment and won’t put up with it.  I’m not a joiner by nature and what time I have for spending on-line won’t allow for me wasting it on groups that won’t acknowledge me or allow me to contribute.

That’s where my experience with eFiction has differed.  The community has been welcoming and helpful, well worth devoting the time to support and contribute to.  If you are an indie writer and haven’t already checked out eFiction, I would urge you to do so.

Oh, yeah, be sure to subscribe to eFiction Magazine and checkout my latest contribution in the August edition, “Another Twenty-Five Minutes”.

About Kevin_Fraleigh

I am a novelist, and much of my writing is predicated on the concept that within each of us is a hole. For some of us, the hole is a divot, shallow and insignificant. But for many of us the hole is a cavern, deep and expansive. We try to fill it with sex or drugs or religion, but the cavern has an insatiable appetite. This is where the dark things live―the things that fill our nightmares. The things that claw at our minds. The things that inspire the stories of horror, madness, and twisted realities. From the depths of that cavern come the seeds of my stories. Won’t you join me in the dark edges of reality? Learn more about me from my blog at anytomorrow.wordpress.com. You can find my novels at amazon.com, smashwords.com, and most eBook retailers. You can also read some of my full length short stories at http://www.wattpad.com/user/Kevin_Fraleigh

    I echo your thoughts on your experiences with eFiction. I had a piece published in their July issue and got some very helpful feedback on another piece when I submitted it to their workshop. I subscribe and the August issue is waiting for me on my Kindle – can’t wait to read your story!
