I would suggest regional magazines. My Dad writes stories about the Southwest, so he has been sending them to Arizona Highways. A really good place to start is Op Ed letters to the papers. You can put your letters in a story form to make them more readable.

Go to your local library and get the Writer's Market for the most recent year. Most often they are in the reference section.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Or just do a google search for "short fiction submissions" and you'll probably get a zillion viable results for free without having to leave your home.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Just got word today I will be getting another article published in a new book about Revit Architecture implemetation. Had to do this work for free, but I am the author and it will be published. 2 published works in one year. That seems like a good thing. Resume builder if nothing else.

Huzzah on the resume building, loborocket! I need (a lot) more of that myself ...

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

I dabble in fiction writing, and if it weren't for forums like these, would probably have a novel sent away to some company. I submit work to Dungeon/Dragon magazine, and have had some stuff accepted and then absorbed into larger things. I have been given the green light for a full D&D adventure to appear "at some point in the future" and have been paid for it ($.06 a word adds up, the check came in at around $250) and hope to make a at least partial carrier out of fiction writing.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

For a number of years, I wrote a column on Toy Soldiers for MWAN magazine (THE MIDWEST WARGAMERS ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER), which I believe is available on www.magweb.com, called Those Fightin' 54s: Collecting and Gaming With 54mm Plastic Toy Soldiers. I also contributed to PLASTIC FIGURE AND PLAYSET COLLECTOR MAGAZINE. Neither still publishes. For a readily available hobby piece, there is a long article on the history and literature of wargaming at www.toycollectors.com.

I have also published two stories in Norse mythology and one on Scandanavian travel experiences in IDUNA: A JOURNAL OF NORTHERN TRADITION, which has a web page at www.thetroth.org. It was edited by Fantasy author Diana L. Paxon. They were Fenja and Menja:The Two Curious Giantesses (Issue Thirty-eight) The Marriage of Skadi and Njord (Issue Forty-Six), and Deck Dancing (Issue Fourty-Eight). I told the second story at an open microphone up at a New Age retreat center.

Two cycles of original radio plays I wrote were performed by me and a small cast on COSMOS-FM, a Greek ethnic station here in NYC suring a series of one hour broadcasts. There were on The Life of Theseus and The Trojan War. I performed one of the Theseus plays at the New York University Student Center, along with a friend who was a professor there, and one or two others.

Back in the Seventies, I co-authored an article in CAMPAIGN magazine called Introduction To Yourself: Dungeons and Dragons For Beginners. I also have playtest credit on a Sci-Fi FRP.

As a Corporate Staff Trainer and Training Director for the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, I created a number of small training manuals and even hosted a training video--singing the introduction in a British Revolutionary War uniform!

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

My latest is out today. It's a historical fiction-adventure novella I co-authored with my dad. Here's some info:

Set against the backdrop of colonial America, Into the Woods is the story of pioneer and patriot Jonathan Wood. Straining against the bonds of Tidewater society, and tempted by an ancient legend, Jonathan's sense of adventure leads him "Over the Mountains" of southwest Virginia. Perils abound for this brave pioneer, who must face threats from the native tribes, the British, and even more sinister enemies, while fighting for the woman he loves and the land that will not let go of his heart. Based on a true story, Into the Woods is a tale of adventure, danger, love, loss, and the triumph of the human spirit.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Into the Woods sounds pretty cool. I wish I had the writing talent. The only thing I've ever gotten printed are letters sent to some comics.

Sigh.

Re: Heroscapers that are published authors

Wow, I didn't realize we had so many authors on 'Scapers!
I'm hoping to eventually write a fantasy novel, always been a fan of the genre, and I read nearly constantly so I figured, hey, might as well have a shot at it. Still in the opening chapters of it.
Kudos to all writers, be it novels, studies, or anything in between, what you guys and gals do is definitly not easy!
