What Should I Include?
# The most important things are to list the title and author in the “subject’ line of the listings interface.
# Next, leave a little comment to give pelple a flavor of the story (perhaps even why you like it). No spoilers though!
# If you can provide information about where readers can find the story, please include it in the main text section. This can be a website link or the name of an anthology. The more information you can give, the better. But please, no affiliate links.
# Enter the author or collection editor’s last name in the tags field to make it easier for readers to find new stories by an author they like.
# Please please please, assign the story to one or more categories. This is really important for making the directory useful to other readers.
# Do not post full stories here. This is not a publishing site. It is a directory that links to stories published elsewhere. Full stories will be removed.
Can I List My Own Stories?
Only if they have been published by someone else.
(I’m a big fan of self-publishing but for this database I need stories that have been vetted and judged. Ack, I hate myself right now…)
Should I Add A Picture?
Probably not. Unless you’re using a cover image from an online bookstore, you’re probably violating someone’s copyright.
What If I See An Error in Someone Else’s Listings?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the offending page and the corrected information. If you’re a nitpicker who’s interested in becoming an editor, email email@example.com with ‘editor’ in the subject line. And thanks!
