I have decided to declare September: ‘Submissions’ Month.


This summer I’ve been in the doldrums a bit and struggled with lower than average energy levels and I came to realise that if I don’t submit my work to various platforms then no one will get to see it and read it, and that would be a shame as I’ve invested a huge amount of my time and effort and energy to get my thoughts and ideas out of my head and on the page.

I’m going to be proactive and do more research, look for outlets to send my work to and I will use the internet and twitter to track down these opportunities.

As to how many pieces I will get submitted I have not determined a figure yet but if I could get one piece of work delivered each week then that would be one piece more than I managed during the summer!

So it’s time I stopped dreaming, wishing, thinking and reading and time to start acting upon my own good advice. I have one piece that I am determined to place, although I’m not sure where yet but some where as it is almost ready to go. Therefore I must stop prevaricating and get it submitted… wish me luck.

I’ll let you know how this pans out even if it’s not great news…


  1. Good Luck! Always good to get out there, at least you can say you've tried! :)

  2. Hang in there Kay, it will get better. I decided to go with self publishing which helped me learn about the publishing process. I will get my first copies within the next three weeks and I have started my next book in the series. Please check out my blog, it is about my process as I wrote "Dreams and Vampires" It was a labor of love.
    Good luck with your book and if you have questions please feel free to ask.
