Hey guys,

Seeing how much everyone has been excited by all of the recent talk and community support here at the CD Forums, I talked to Dan and suggested that we start a thread so we can all connect outside of here. So if you have a Twitter, Facebook Page, or blog, post it up here and we can all support each other. Always nice to network and share your work, and it should also help if people have questions, or want to spread the word about related events: contests, cool magazines, journals and websites, etc.

So, I'll go first. Post up whatever you've got.

Interesting. How did you make a fan page on goodreads?

Anyway, my actual goodreads is at http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4462398-ken-cain

The fan pages are cool, no offense but those aren't as much networking as they are promoting. That being said, I'll still become a fan for you all. :O)

That's not a fan page, it's an author profile. If you have a book up there you can apply/create one. I have one novel, and I'm in a few anthologies and magazines/journals that are on GR, so that makes me fairly "legit" :-)

Yeah. Just look for the Author Page tab, it's somewhere upper right hand corner, or under HELP, I forget. They're pretty cool about it. Then you can do cool things like Giveaways. I've done four, two for my novel, Transubstantiate, and two for Shivers VI, and I got about 1000 people to enter each time. Good PR tool.

That's awesome. I'd love to do another giveaway. I have about 20 copies of my book sitting around doing nothing and before long I think the reissue will come out LOL. Not sure how he is going to do it though. He may just update the limited Edition or something like that. Always love a chance to fix mistakes though.

On Facebook you may have to message me as it somehow thinks I have too many friend requests sometimes, even though I have none, lol. I get requests from names I don't know at all, but people who actually know me get the message that I have too many requests. Strange. Very, very strange.

Can you link to multi-author works? I was going to create an author page, but my book doesn't come out until Fall. I was going to use the issues of Dark Moon Digest (in their database) to create one, but wasn't sure if I could do that.

Yes, you can. As long as you're in the TOC or someplace. And as long as you can find an ISBN anybody can post the book up. Doesn't have to be the editor or press. I did that for Pear Noir!, the issue I was in, and got a Pushcart Nomination for, since the editor had no idea how to do it. So: anthology, magazine, literary journal, go ahead an add them in. Try to do a good job of getting the description and details up there (easy to pull from Amazon) and be sure to add all of the authors in, even if they don't have a GR profile. It's mostly common sense. You can add eBooks too. I added my eStory "Victimized" up there. But you CANNOT give away eBooks/eStories in the Giveaways.

Hmm...Just checked and I never got a response, so maybe it is hanging out in the slush pile, and I just made it through? Sorry to see you guys closing down. Or are you just closing to subs for a while? Does this mean Horror Library is going too? Or is that separate? I hope neither are gone for good.

I'll check on your story and let you know.
DR was going to close about 2 years ago and Boyd Harris talked me into helping keep it up and running. It ended up that I did almost everything. I loved what I was able to do but I lost my stride on my writing career. I worked out an agreement to hand it back over to the original editor but it ended up getting neglected. I decided to do one final issue and then put it to rest as it should be instead of going down a black hole.

Horror Library is a totally different entity and is alive and well and up for a Stoker this weekend.

Thanks for the interest, Craig and Richard, but about three days after I joined Twitter last year (two years ago, maybe?) I realized I just wasn't pithy enough, and haven't posted since, then. If I get a phone that can do texts and twitter, I'll at least follow you fellas.

RichardThomas
06-26-2011, 02:03 AM
don't need to be pithy, just start following people or places that you dig, and just stop by every day or every other day to see what's going on, no biggie - i used to be a lot less low key about it, now i'm on there more - there are lots of ways like TweetDeck to peruse the feeds, but i just check it once in awhile

ozmosis7
06-26-2011, 02:09 AM
There is a program for facebook that posts your shared posts straight to twitter. I use that typically, as I find twitter a tad confusing. Plus, there are often times when I get a message that their servers are too busy.

Man I'm so techno illiterate. I need to find out how to send an attachment for an electronic submission to some of these markets and change all my story formats from .doc to .rtf files? WTF is .rtf? I was just typing and printing and saving, now I have to figure this submission process out. What's an old storyteller to do? Can I do this from Gmail?

ozmosis7
06-26-2011, 03:41 PM
RTF=Rich Text Format. It is a basic text format, that holds the formatting, such as italics. It's almost on the verge of being an HTML email.

If you use word, you should be able to "save as" directly from there as an RTF. If not, there are several sites that offer free conversion, although I cannot vouch for any of them. Someone once told me gmail had a bunch of conversion tools, but I have never sought them out either.

Craig Wallwork
06-26-2011, 03:43 PM
Yeah, Word will do it. As Ken states, just Save As, and locate Other Formats. Within there will be RTF. All the best.

Hosting shouldn't really be a big problem until you're getting to the high traffic end of things. The key is, that if you don't know how to install the word press stuff yourself to find a hosting company that will work with you to help you get it set up. I'm a diy guy so I don't really know about that end, but I do know go daddy has some of the cheapest hosting around. For my personal stuff I use hostmonster and have had a very good experience with them.

My website has the ability to be a lot more complex than a blog site. They are also accessed through a different site-I don't really understand all of the differences, but I had a friend who is a web designer do mine, and she said they are different. I'm about as lost as you are.

IMO a website updates infrequently whereas a blog updates on a regular basis (daily, weekly, etc.) with more recurring material - pretty similar though, i think

well, "blog" just comes from web log, right? a website entry, so take from that what you will - the "blogs" i follow seem to have a schedule (like every day of the week is something different, or once a week a column goes up) vs. a website which just posts up when there is news - splitting hairs here, probably, yeah?

Some you can link, and thus one post goes to many. Some you only post once in a while. But I tend to work on putting something up weekly on my blog, that autoshares with most of them. I try not to spend a lot of time on all of the forums, social apps, etc...but it's also a necessity. I would have never found out about CD's contest without it. Plus, there is a lot of good opinions/experiences/advice to be shared, which is priceless in this industry. So I try to build it all into my daily research. There are never enough hours in the day for me though.

You've touched on this a few times, CW; I'm hoping to get a little clarification. Does this apply to both short stories and novels? I'm only focusing on SS so would you say it would behoove me to market any publication in which my work appears in hopes of driving up their circulation which in turn would make them think "hmm, people like this R.J. guy. Perhaps we should look at his work more closely?"

ozmosis7
07-25-2011, 02:40 PM
I think if you decide to try your hand at writing full-time, than you need to structure your day in a way that works for you. There are a lot of different aspects to such a task: marketing, socializing, networking, reading, writing, editing, studying, research, etc. This is not a business (unfortunately) that you get rich at quickly. The right opportunity has to discover you, and that doesn't happen so often. I've met thousands of writers, and very few that I consider to be making it.

For me, when I say research, that includes looking into aspects of stories as much as it does checking out publishers, platforms, whats going on int he market, and stuff of that nature. I try to fill the bulk of my day between that and editing. Everything else is important too, but understanding your job and how to do it well are the most important. Writing every day ensures you are putting to use what you learn. But you have to make sure you are improving as well. Always try to take your game to that next level.

For me, networking/socializing falls low on that list. Although it is important, it can take away from your day too much if you aren't careful about it. Although, I rarely am able to turn away from a good discussion about writing. I consider that part of networking to be research though. If someone shares their thoughts with you, than you are learning--whether it be in agreement or of your own intuition.

If your aiming at the short form market as a full-time writer, that can be hectic I would think. I would imagine you would be writing shorts every day, and sending them out every day. I've come across one guy that attempted such a thing, and he claimed to be making pretty good scratch at it. Reading his blog, it sounded like a lot of work full-time. I know a lot of writers that have another full-time job though prefer this, as its all they have time for. Nothing wrong with it by any means.

Whenever you choose a path in the creative fields, it all comes down to a few things. First, are you good? Second, are you working to get better? And third, has the right person found you yet? Forums such as CD's and others are a great place to start. In the end though, its much like winning the lottery I think.

Always pimp out everything you are in, whether people buy it or not, you want it on their minds...or at least visible. I'd be careful of going too far with that though. I've come across a few authors that do so much of it that I know several people have ignored them. Others have even begun to criticize them. Still, its the nasty thing we need to do. Be proud of what you achieve. There is nothing wrong with posting that.

Hope all that helps.

You've touched on this a few times, CW; I'm hoping to get a little clarification. Does this apply to both short stories and novels? I'm only focusing on SS so would you say it would behoove me to market any publication in which my work appears in hopes of driving up their circulation which in turn would make them think "hmm, people like this R.J. guy. Perhaps we should look at his work more closely?" It certainly can't hurt you any. Plus you are getting your name out there, good for any writer! Sorry about the delay-I've been busy with deadlines!
