Douglas Lance (douglance) | 12 comments First, I want to say thanks for being such a great group of smart and social people. I've learned a lot from this group and I'm here to give back.

I am the editor-in-chief of eFiction magazine. A medium sized fiction magazine. We serve 1000+ readers each month from our website, as well as 350 subscribers to our Kindle version.

We are offering free ad space for members of this group. Anyone who has self-published their book through Amazon, B&N, Createspace, etc. can participate. To get your ad in our next issue, send a 1250 x 1650 pixel image ad to editor@efictionmag.com. I will respond to you quickly upon receive your ad

Also, we are open to book reviews from indie authors. Review copies can be sent to our resident book reviewer Essie, by emailing essie@efictionmag.com. Mention my name to make sure she doesn't think you are a spammer.

In addition, we publish short stories of less than 5000 words from every genre. We would love to publish your stories and do a review and ad. They are not mutually exclusive. Go here to submit a story: http://efictionmag.submishmash.com

Finally, we have a small workshop and writers hangout spot called Authors which you can visit here: http://authors.efictionmag.com

I hope you get involved with eFiction. And I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to ask me anything.

I forgot to mention that previous books who have advertised with us reported sales of 45 books directly from the magazine.

M. (meddiemc) | 1 comments Echoing the thanks of authors, and Hi, all. (the "M." here is short for M. Edward McNally. Awkward, I know.)

EDIT: So if I typed "authors" in place of "others," is that just a typo or does it qualify as a Freudian Slip?

Melissa Conway (melissaconway) Hi Doug,

eFiction magazine looks great, and your offer of free ad space on the site and a review is beyond generous. I've already registered and checked out the latest issue. I have quite a few friends who write short stories, so I'll be sure to point them your way.

Working on an ad for my latest book now...

Melissa

Edited to ask: What size will the ads be so I can calculate font size visibility? Thanks!

Esther Jno-Charles (estherjnocharles) | 63 comments Wonderful gifts to Indie authors. Thanks. Is the review free as well?

Lia Fairchild | 3 comments Would it be possible to point us in the direction of some sample ads so we can get an idea of what to do?

Thanks.

Douglas Lance (douglance) | 12 comments Hey authors!!

The issue is set to release on Monday, August 1st. So if you sent me an ad, make sure to either check the site and subscribe, follow us @eFictionMag, or http://www.facebook.com/efiction to be alerted as soon as the new issue goes live. You won't want to miss it!

Thanks so very much for making this issue the best ever.

All the best,

Sharon (scpennington) Are those of us who are signed with small indie publishers also included in your generous offer, Doug? Sounds like a fantastic opportunity.

Yes they are Sharon. We support all authors who are indie-minded. :)

If you can get it to me in the next couple hours it can even go in the August issue. Otherwise it will be on top of the stack for September.
