    DailyScienceFiction.Com-Has anyone submitted/published through them?

    Discussion in 'Publisher Discussion' started by criticalsexualmass, Feb 18, 2014.

    I was considering submitting some articles to them as my SCIFI stuff is coming out better than anything else right now. Has anyone dealt with them? Just wondering if you have any good/bad experiences

    look them up at writer's beware and see if they're in there. That's the best place to go before submitting to any magazine, agent or publisher. It's a very good resource.

    I haven't sent them anything yet (though I plan to), but I have subscribed to their four-free-stories-a-week email service for a year or so. The quality of the stories seems to be very uneven, ranging from as good as I've read to unreadable.

    Their business model seems to be publihing the stories via email for free and then bundling them into anthologies that they sell on Amazon. Eight cents a word to the author for the original publication and another five cents if your story makes the anthology.

    If you have something good, give it a try and let us know how it worked out.

    I've been meaning to submit something there; I've been subscribed for a while, but haven't read many of the stories. With those payments, I may give it a try.

    When I searched on writer beware many of the contributors to that organisation actually have dailysciencefiction.com on their list of writing credits so I feel a lot better about them now.

    Good deal! Always check with them before signing with agents, etc etc. It'll save your rear. :)
