SFWA Bulletin articles

I don’t bring it up often, but one of the publications I edit is The SFWA Bulletin. We publish non-fiction at 10 cents/word and both members and non-members are welcome to submit. You can find the guidelines here.

From time-to-time, people make suggestions for the types of articles they would like to see us publish. Currently, this list includes the following topics:

  • Book Trailers (pros, cons, how-to, why)
  • Selling Books at Conventions (getting my own table vs teaming up vs commission)
  • Understanding Print on Demand and it’s relationship with bookstores (who carries what and why)
  • Essential Elements of Author Websites (We’ve done this before, but trends change)
  • Audiobooks (what’s the marketplace like, should I get in, how?)

If any of these are within your area of expertise, please consider pitching an article.

Also, I’m looking for people to help cover the Nebula Awards Conference, so if you will be attending this year and have an interest, please contact me at the address listed in the guidelines.

Nebula Award Weekend and Mass Signing

bulletin-208-250The Wednesday, I’ll be flying to Chicago for the 2016 Nebula Awards weekend. Copies of Clarkesworld #115 will be in some of the attendee book bags, the latest issue of The SFWA Bulletin (which I also edit) will be distributed, and early copies of The Best Science Fiction of the Year will be available (it won’t be in stores until June). If that wasn’t enough, I’ll be attending the Nebula Awards and cheering on our three nominees in the short story category:

bsfoty1If you weren’t planning on being there, but live in the Chicago, you might be interested in the mass signing that will happen on Friday. Just check out the list of participants!

 

Editor the SFWA Bulletin

I’ve just been announced as the new editor of the SFWA Bulletin. No, this doesn’t mean I’ll be quitting my day job, but it does get me one step closer. Between Clarkesworld, Forever, Best Science Fiction of the Year, and several anthologies I haven’t told you about yet, and the Bulletin, I’m going to be quite busy, but the right kind of busy. 2016 is going to be a good year.
