HOW TO SEND US A STORY

Just to be clear--You own your story.  We don't ask for any right other than the right to display the story on our web site.  Your name will appear on the story as copyright holder.

Sending Text By E-Mail

      Send your story file in the body of an E-mail or as an E-mail attachment.  You can send it as a text file or as an HTML file.  Your story will then appear on our site pretty much the way it did on your computer, so be sure you've copy edited it and checked the spelling. 
      Be sure to have clear divisions between paragraphs.  Double space is best.  Many manuscripts arrive with the text all continuous, so we can't tell where paragraphs end or start.
      Be sure you've titled the story.  It's surprising how many come in with no title.

      If you think you might want a pen name, think hard.  They make it a pain in the sit-down place for us to remember who you really are.  Besides, most are no better than the name you got when you were born.  However, if you must, you must.
     We like to use a short author's introduction to the beginning of each story and a brief biography of the author  at the end. Send these along in the body of your E-mail.  
 
     We can use one or two JPEG or GIF images with your story, so send them as E-mail attachments.  If you've seen our pages you'll be aware
of how much illustrations add to the stories.
      If you have non-digital photos, but have no way to scan them, we can do it here. Just send us the photo with a suitably stamped and addressed return envelope
.
     Include your regular mailing address and telephone number for our records. All your personal information is
 kept strictly confidential. Note that we invite readers to contact you, but their messages are sent to us. We then  redirect them to you. This assures your privacy.

Regular Mail 

     If you can't figure out how to send your story files by e-mail, just send your story on a CD, SD chip, or thumb drive.  Please send in a standard PC format  (Open Office or Word is best for us).  (Note: we cannot accept traditional paper manuscripts.)

     You can send the introduction, biographical sketch,
 photo, and personal information on the same CD or chip.  Our mailing address is:
