Definitely want to so it but need to get a mailing list set up. Darn me and my procrastination for putting it off. But I have all June and July so hopefully I can coerce at least friends and family to join.

Looking forward to your story! Keep in mind you can have a list with a subscriber count of 1 (you). That's enough. I'm not asking to know your subscriber count, just that you have a list and are taking signups. :)

For everyone just setting up a mailing list, remember to update your other books' files to include the link! Front and back matter. Make sure to say whether it's a regular mailing, only for new releases, or if you'll do random emails about sales, or whatever. Some folks don't like getting a lot of emails, so keep that in mind when deciding how you set it up. I think Jane Dough's thread about Mailchimp is on the first or second page still, and it might be helpful.

George, I'm working on another story for the same pen name, since the one you've gotten from Andrew was published in one of my collections (that was okay by the previous rules). I should have it done in a day or so, perhaps a little longer, since I'm working on finishing up a novel and I'm not sure how long that's going to take. Only need about three chapters, maybe less to wrap that up. Whew!

Hi guys! An update.

I've received the names of 43 authors who submitted stories to Andrew. I'm emailing them right now to see if they'd like to join us.

If someone can go through the old thread and PM all the people in it about the new thread, I think that would help a lot. Thanks in advance!

I never submitted to the old one because it seemed to be dead in the water. I will have to submit now. :)

Does "one indie fiction title published" mean a novel or can it be a short story or flash fiction?

If you have an indie-published work for sale at any of the retailers or even just on your site using something like GumRoad or PayPal, that's fine. There just needs to be something for the reader to buy. It could be a novel, novella, short or another anthology you've got a story in, whether you're an editor or just a contributor. Make sense?

Checked out the site for uploading stories, and it says one story per author name. The first post on this thread said up to three, so I'm confused. Doh! Not that I can upload anything yet, as I'll have to get everything sent to Dropbox. Which means I'll need to get my son to explain Dropbox to me again. Duh.

Anyway, George. You have the one I submitted the first time around on this thing. I guess you want it again through the system so you'll have a fresh contractual agreement? Make everything all neat and tidy. :D

Hi, it says "One entry per author name" (meaning please put all your stories in one form submission) and "One story per file" but not "one story per author name." Up to 3 is totally awesome.

You can also upload the text to your own webserver/website in a file or even a Google Doc might do it.

Thanks and yes, please. I need to keep it organized and make sure I'm publishing only the latest versions and only stories I have clear permission to publish. Thanks for your patience!

Got it. It did seem rather confusing in the way it was worded, but I understand what you mean now:  all entries for one author name done at the same time. Thanks.

I have one up on Dropbox now, will finish the other (that hasn't been published) soon and then I'll get the form in to you.

Man, this thing is going to be awesome, am I right?

I'm off on holiday, but will be getting my website up and running, plus publishing my first book, by the end of June. So, if it's okay, I will submit then :)

I haven't had an email from you, George, and I submitted a story to Andrew. I was waiting to be contacted, in case there wasn't a need to fill out the form again, as I know nothing about dropboxes and clouds and whatnot, and I was hoping not to have to spend time doing the research and learning yet another new thing.  :(

Kyla and T76, I look forward to reading your stories!

Hi Raquel, your name is not among the 43 that Andrew sent me. You don't have to use Dropbox. You can upload the story file(s) to your own website. Dropbox though is very useful, if nothing else, for backing up manuscripts in progress. It's not hard to set up. The account is free indefinitely. I can walk you through it if you want. Just email me. :)

Hi Raquel, your name is not among the 43 that Andrew sent me.

That's really strange, but there must be other authors missing too.
Here's the last list of submitted stories that Andrew posted on the old thread. As you can see, there are 50, not 43, and I'm right there at number 17.  :D

Raquel, all I have is what Andrew forwarded to me. Perhaps he queried you on whether you wanted him to forward your story to me and perhaps he didn't hear back from you or your response was lost in the shuffle. I'm glad we're in contact here though and I look forward to your story!

I don't think I've heard from you, but I just ran across this thread (I'm #41 on Raquel's post of the original story list).

I have over 1,330 subscribers on my mail chimp list, and another 440 on my website subscriber list.  I'll fill out the Google form and send my story along.

Hi Lisa, I emailed you at an email address that starts with your first and last names. Maybe it went into your spam folder? Looking forward to your story!

Thanks. Found the email from you dated June 6th. :) I have teen girls over for a sleepover so I plan to get to it tomorrow. Tonight I can't concentrate. :)
