Call for submissions: author spotlight or review on my page

Attention writers: I am donating space on my blog to feature you and your writing. I have an impact of about 3,000 people, which can and will draw readers to your writing.
I will dedicate a post with four parts:
1) A brief introduction of you (two sentences.)
2) An excerpt of your work (500 word cap.)
3) A brief interview between yourself and I.
4) A plug for your bibliography, website, or whatever you choose.

This, of course, is completely free. I am completely flexible, and will work with you to fulfill your needs, desires, etc. Nothing is out of bounds.

Contact me at mutedbutpresent (at) gmail (dot) com if interested.

Low Views: Second-Chance Dance (1/23-1/29)

Every time you blog, you run the risk of not being heard. But nobody’s going to make fun of you for it, though it may feel like a wasted opportunity.

That’s when the Second-Chance Dance comes in.

Starting on Thursday and ending on Wednesday, I will collect up to 30 posts that you want to be promoted and feature them on my Twitter and WordPress. Sound good?

Here’s the Inlinkz. Click it and follow the instructions.

Let’s all be kind and give each post a click, like, follow, and extra points for a comment. This is a good way to network, and to expose yourself to different blogs.

Call for submissions: Pirates!, edited by Michael Wombat

Ar, ye scurvy curs.

Calling all writers: write a short story pertaining to pirates, submit to this anthology, get published. Simple as that.

Ha-harrr! Piratical tales please, between 5k and 15k words in length. No deadline yet, as we’re all still finding our feet here.

No modern day pirates, though, such as those roaming around Somalia now. I want proper traditional pirates – jolly roger, rum, eyepatches, tall ships, buried treasure, wooden legs etc. I’m happy with straightforward pirate tales, in whatever style makes your juices flow […] but don’t be afraid to throw a curve ball of an idea in there with them too, if that’s what you want. Mine, FYI, has a dinosaur.

I’m bound to have forgotten something, so please fling any questions you have this way.

Interested? Follow these steps to join the ranks of Anthology Club and submit to this and any other active anthology project:
1) Follow this link to Anthology Club’s homepage.
2) Read up on how it works, then follow the instructions on the site to register and activate your account.
3) After receiving confirmation you are an active member of the group, click the Forums link to find forums for projects, project proposals, critique requests, craft-related questions, genre-specific discussions, and generic jive.
Any questions? Hit me up on the comments below. I’ll be glad to field any questions.
