Letter from the Editor

Written by Jacob Jans | May 1, 2013

Welcome to Issue Four of Authors Publish Magazine. Our mission is to get you published. We want to help you from start to finish. That’s why we give you writing prompts, publishing guides, and reviews of publications accepting submissions.

If you’ve ever wondered whether you should self publish or go the more traditional route, then you should definitely read this weeks article on the topic. The world of self publishing has come a long way recently, and you might be surprised at the number of best-selling books that started out with self publishing. (Hint, 50 Shades of Gray is not the only book that started out self published.)

This week we also give you one of the best writing warm ups we know. It’s a 3 minute sprint, and it trains you, very effectively, to get words down on paper. If you’ve ever had writers block, this will cure it, fast.

The two journals we review this week are both worth a look. If you want to publish your fiction, then Fiction On the Web is for you. They’re one of the oldest literary journals on the internet, and are very accessible to authors new to the publishing world.

I have to admit, I have a soft-spot for Softblow, the other journal we review this week. Why? Because I was recently published by them. They are well established, and accept poetry for publication. If you have poetry you would like to get published, be sure to read our review.

As always, thank you for reading. We’re a small magazine, but we’re here to serve you. Your feedback is very much appreciated — so be sure to send it our way: support@authorspublish.com

Sincerely,

Jacob Jans
Editor
