Yeah, yeah. I know. "But Phil, there are already tons of those. What can you possibly add?" I don't know. But I thought it would be fun to do one. If it becomes popular, maybe I'll even invest a lot of money into it and make it a paying market. I think it takes a lot of hard work to do, but with technology the way it is now, it's become easier to create places for people to read. And that's my main goal, to set up an e-zine to publish quality short stories for people to read for free.
Just like any blog or website out there, I realize I have to do a lot of stuff. So yeah, I'm going to do what I can to promote this idea. I've always dreamed of running my own publishing company, but this way I can do it on a smaller scale and build from there. Most things in life worth doing start off as for fun and then become serious down the line, so I'm hoping this is how my project will turn out.
It will be a bit "niche" though. Meaning I don't want just any fantasy or sci-fi. Once I get things set up, I'll reveal it all here on Mythic Scribes and I'd like some of you to send in stories if you can.
Because this will be very niche, I don't expect a large quantity of submissions which may be both a blessing and a curse. But I think if I spread the word enough, I'll be able to garner interest.
I know I'm being pretty vague right now, but once I get things going, I'll update everyone about the details. Cheers!
