I'm sorry but Tom Spurgeon is a bit of a penis. I know this from personal experience.
Still thanks for the link.
My personal attempt was going to involve researching various publishers sub guidelines that I thought I'd be a good fit for and then going from there.
Which is what I'd encourage others to do as well, but didn't want to invade on their own method.
As far as putting in work to other small press imprints or anthologies. I'm guilty of that. I am one of them as well. As we have an anthology that's supposed to be finally coming out.
I'm talking about taking it the next step. I've done the real indy route of apa's and anthologys and small press. Looking to take it to the next level where there's a bit more distribution help.
If I get rejected? I can always go back to the smaller press, self publish route.
