Submissions Wanted!


Do you write SciFi that celebrates the weird, embraces the unusual, endeavors to unscrew the inscrutible… and is… strangely compelling?

If so, I’m looking for short stories (up to a maximum of around 6000 words) for an anthology of “Strangely Compelling SciFi”!

Topic: “Sci-fi is the main thing. Compelling would be nice. Strange is only a suggestion.”

A maximum of 2 submissions per author will be acceptable for this anthology. Authors will be credited for their contributions. The deadline is open-ended, and it will be taken forward once I have enough material.

The anthology will be published through Moon Books Publishing in eBook, print and audiobook formats. (There will be no payment for your story, but it will help get your name, brand and writing out there!)

Some editing of grammar and spelling for selected submissions may be necessary, but will not be charged for.

Please send your submissions in Word (.doc or .docx format) to christinaengela@gmail.com

FAQ’s Answered #7: What Do I Write About (& Other Questions)


Today in a series of replies to FAQ (frequently asked questions) sent to me by fans (and sometimes not so much), I answer a few similar questions together under the umbrella question:  “What do you write about?

These were asked by several people over the last few months, and because the answers were likely to be shorter than for previous questions, I thought it best to combine them into one post!

So, without further ado, answers to the questions: “What do you write about?”, “When did you first start writing?”, “Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?”, Which authors do you feel influenced you as a writer?”, “Do you write to music?”, “Do you self-publish?”, “What motivated you to indie publish?” and “Where can I get your books?”
