Publish this. Please.

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

It’s summer, and I’ve been getting a fair amount of work done. I’ve been working on a novel, on a script, drawing lots of my little pictures, and writing stories. I don’t send out stories to magazines very much; as any writer can tell you, submitting can be a chore. What this means is that I have a lot of unpublished stories here. Good stories (if I can say that without being the kind of guy who would say something like that).

So I thought I’d try a little experiment. If you’re a magazine editor and would like to consider one of my stories for publication in your magazine, please contact me. If you’re reading this, you know something about me, and I would like to know something about you, so please include all the information about your publication you can. I’m not demanding a ton of money. I do like to see my stories in nice-looking magazines, and I also prefer national distribution, if possible. Other than that, I’m wide-open.

Among the stories available for publication are: “The Monkey Woman”: obviously, about a woman and a monkey; ” The Cancer Diet”: sad/funny/bittersweet; ” The Fortune Ruined Me”: a trust fund baby, now middle-aged, lives beneath the stairs of his family home in order not to have to face the real world; “Rudy”: “Rudy” is about a young couple who have several disastrous relationships with dogs. And “”Graveyard Days,” about a guy who picks up women in a graveyard.

That’s about it, dear editor. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Daniel Wallace

July 8th: Official paperback pub date. If you’ve been lining up at the bookstore for it I think you’ll find it was worth the wait. It’s way better than the hardback. How? It’s lighter, cheaper, the cover is brighter and it uses the same technology the new iPhone uses. 3G, baby. The words download faster into your brain.
