Have you sold a short story, poem, piece of art, novella or even a novel?

How much did you sell it for, what was its name and what genre/style is it?

Nothing. I need to start sending some stuff away. The problem is, the stuff I write is not really in one particular genre. An example being my last short story, which includes horror, some fantasy, mystery, and psychological terror. But I plan on writing on a fantasy idea I have in my head, so maybe I can get going from there. So... no cha ching for me. :mad:

Yup, I've sold novels before. :) It's currently selling for $18.95. It is of the fantasy genre.

Two non-fiction articles on writing. Not a dime (but gotta admit, the byline was nice).

This is my problem, also. Way too much crossover. So what are you supposed to do, send them out randomly to every genre market and just pray one of them will pick it up?

I've never gave much thought as to how I should send the stuff out. Maybe somebody here can help us...

I've got about 13 short stories waiting to be sent and more on the way as I write them. Only one rejection thus far, but that's only because of the long waiting times. I really want to get published and have only sent out a few stories. Wish I was in the US with more paying zines to choose from. Then I'd save myself a lot of time and hassle.
