Hello,

I am really surprised to see that there is not a thread for Lush authors who are published. Can we have a roll call? I don't think you can promote in the thread unless it is in your sig.

I'll wait for responses, then join in...

I'm published here and I have some stories with a few publishing houses. :D

Did not want to go into detail since I have learned today it might be considered spamming. : /

Someone pulled you up for linking to our largest online competitor, you're painting a totally different picture there.

Did not mean to, only wondered why there was not a thread like they had on that site.

Many are, it seems they do not blow their own trumpet as much as others.

SirNathan, Dancing Doll, Brindle Chase are, to name a few. I know they wouldn't mind a tip of the hat.

It was not meant to toot own own horn, I was interested to see how many on here are published at houses.

Please feel free to remove the thread if need be.

And btw, my links dont work and I'm over 20...

My work is published and for sale on Amazon.com as well as a few other e-book sites through "Burping Frog Publishing"

And some of it is doing pretty good, if I do say so myself!

Technically...yes Nic, but I found something recently I thought interesting enough to share as to what defines a "published" author...I became aware of this list recently in a newsletter, and have been trying to get on it as a "published fiction writer"...I realize I am exactly one publishing credit away, btw...

P&W's Directory of Poets and Writers
http://www.pw.org/directory/featured

I mean, getting that story in the school paper might have impressed your mom but might not be the thing to include if you're hoping to impress an agent or going for a writing job...

Anyway...this is what they want...

Yes, I think I have enough points, but not being American I don't qualify.
