As you might have noticed, I have made this blog private. It is only open to those whom I have invited and other blog authors. I did this because many magazines and book publishers will not accept work that has been previously published and this includes the web. If your blog or page is shared among just a few and not with anyone some of the publishers find this okay. Others do not.
Thus anything I publish on this page should be okay to send to magazines and such. I just wanted to warn you.-RS
