    Golden Visions

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by becca, Aug 30, 2010.

    Three of my stories will be published by Golden Visions Magazine in October. One, The Hottest Laptop, some of you have already read, it will be online and in print. Another story, Chosen, will be in the online issue, so everyone who wants to can read it. But the third, Heart of a Soldier, will only be in the print issue.

    It's a good paying market for Scifi, Fantasy, and Mild Horror. They even have contests! I won third place in their last one, and my story was published in their print issue!

    Hey, that's awesome. Golden Visions was my first paid publication a couple months ago.

    Really? In the print or online issue? My story, "Fueling a Joy Ride," was in their last print issue! Are you in there too?

    Thanks everyone! I'll let you know when Chosen goes live. ;)

    congrats on your sales, becca!

    if you don't mind my asking, are they now paying the going rate [or at least more than $5-10 per story, as they used to]?... if so, i'd happily add them to my list of recommended venues...

    love and hugs, maia

    I was in the April PDF version. I didn't realize it was that long ago until I looked it up. You probably don't have access to it, but my story was called "Riley and Puck."
