Daily Science Fiction

For all the people who love science-fiction and fantasy, you need to visit this site and subscribe. Daily Science Fiction is a great site for readers and writers. Subscribe to get FREE short stories every weekday. Even though they're offering the stories for free, writers are paid eight cents a word. Pretty awesome, eh?

These are quality stories from new writers to Hugo Award winning authors. I've had a subscription for over half a year now. It's so much fun having a short story to read each morning while eating my Fruit Loops.

I recently learned something even more fantastic about Daily Science Fiction: they are now SFWA approved. Yes! One of my goals this year is to attempt to get a story published with a SFWA approved market and become a SFWA associate member. (Maybe one day, a full active member!) Daily Science Fiction is always seeking submissions.

  4. I'll check it out then! My royalty advances aren't big enough to qualify me for the SFWA.

    1. It's a great site. I also think it's a bit easier to qualify for membership with short stories than with a novel.
