Your Name in Lights!

Take a look at this fascinating post by Amanda Brittany. She's attempting to list all womag writers, along with an indication of how many stories each has sold.

If your name is missing, or has the wrong number of stars, comment on her post or email her.

It's great to see how many of us are writing and selling stories, and I bet there are loads more names to add to the list!

Nice to know I've got one star, lol!

What's this based on exactly? Where does she get her figures?

I think Amanda is compiling the list of names as best she can and asking the writers or people who know them to let her know the correct number of stars.

It does say 'under construction' on the list.

Hey, I've been upgraded! I have lost many stories over the years with computers dying on me, so I have really no idea how many stories I've had published.

I wonder there isn't a special category for Teresa - not stars but crowns!

I wonder if reprints are counted as sales, or the original sale only?

Amanda said...

Thanks so much for the link Womag!

Also thanks to Anonymous - that's exactly what I'm trying to do. :-))

Hi
I'm Tess Niland Kimber and I write full-time. I've sold a novel, numerous articles and I'm nudging 40 on the short story sales. I've also won or been placed in several short story comps. I think that makes me a 3 star?
I also know Jan Wright and Jill Butcher. Both would be more than one stars but I'm not sure of their exact numbers although Jan passed 100 sales many moons ago.
Brill idea!
All the best

Great idea. Thanks for the link, Womag.

Again - thanks for another great link - fascinating to see all those people writing for the market.

Elaine Everest said...

What a clever idea. Perhaps we could have a union next and fight for decent pay?

Geraldine Ryan said...

Elaine, you're on!

I emailed Amanda to add myself to the list.

By the way, I just sold a story to The Weekly News. I'm shouting it out here because this sale is a direct result of the international magazine swap some weeks back.

I would never have attempted to write for this publication if I hadn't received a few copies in the swap. This was my first attempt.

So, thanks Womag! And thanks to my swap partner!

Thanks Geraldine!

It's fascinating seeing the numbers of stars change as Amanda gets in touch with more and more writers, isn't it?

A Womag Union, Elaine & Geri? Interesting idea! :-D
