Market Opening News

Just in time for me to be entirely caught up in the idea that I might actually win my NaNoWriMo attempt, I just learned that publisher Angry Robot is having an open-door submission period from now (actually, it began on Friday) through the end of the year.  What that means for you and me is that they’re taking unagented SF/F novel submissions, which is not something they normally do.

Angry Robot’s authors include Pennsylvanian (or Pennsyltuckian) Chuck Wendig, who has lots of smart things to say over on Terrible Minds.

What this open-door period means for me is that, before I can begin my NaNo attempt, I need to finish the novel I already have and get it in submittable shape, hopefully in time for me to still make a NaNo attempt while it’s still November, but realistically, before Christmas, so that I can get it out the door before the holidays.

Rather than re-hashing the submission guidelines and possibly missing something important, I’ll just point you straight at them.  If you’re interested in submitting to Angry Robot during this year’s open-door period, find out how by clicking this sentence.
