The Basics - 1k words of Original Fiction. Bring your killers and madmen.
We have reached the halfway mark of the first monthly writing contest for Moran Publishing. There are still two weeks to submit. Here is an update on how the contest is progressing.
I have received many submissions and have sent thank you notes to all. There was one story that got deleted in G-Mail. If you submitted, but didn't receive a thank you- it unfortunately was your story that got deleted. Please re-submit with my apologies.
A general note to all submitting - I've loved the stories, but stress to all - please carefully read the stories of my narrators. I plan to market the winner of the June Writing Contest with the first e-book offering from Moran Publishing - Ella.
Bottom line - know what the Ella 'content' is all about and tailor your submission to match. I had a conversation with an author about what this means and I'll give you the gist of that talk.
Think of it in a Jazz way - the 'keywords' of your story need to be in the same musical 'key' as mine or cross-marketing will be a fail. As a small publisher, my resources are scant and the content I post must work double duty.
If you have any questions about how to better position your story for success, feel free to DM, e-mail or otherwise contact me.
Have a great evening,
Stephen John Moran
