Tweets by CommonSense 17 Apps and Websites Kids Are Heading to After Facebook Social media apps that let teens do it all -- text, chat, meet people, and share their pics and videos -- often fly under parents' radars. While it may seem more complicated to post photos on Instagram, share casual moments on Snapchat, text on WhatsApp, and check your Twitter feed throughout the day, tweens and teens love the variety.
Jump to Services This survey has no authority other than my own ornery wish to help aspiring writers make progress; I'm really a writer, not a surveyor. I am Piers Anthony, known primarily for my Xanth fantasy series, though I also do serious writing.
I've had a good deal of experience in the publishing school of hard knocks, hence my interest in making it easier for others. Updates directly from publishers are welcome, and so are comments about those publishers from those who use them.
I have no agenda other than reasonable clarity, accuracy and relevance. I take publishers' claims on faith until learning otherwise; then I tell truth without much concern for consequences.
I do not check with publishers before running positive or negative feedback on them; this survey is of the nature of a review, and anonymity of sources is maintained.
If I may summarize the general gist of publisher responses to bad reviews, it is "You're a liar! Tell us who blabbed so we can destroy them.
Who the hell are you to make such judgments anyway?! Clean up your act. I posted spot updates called to my attention, as shown in color. Routine checking of sites is getting so slow on my dial-up that I have had to stop it, and just update as I hear about things.
Thanks to Ara Seferian for vetting the entire list here to point out invalid links. These have been disabled this month, although we leave the original address for reference. Otherwise, just spot amendments, as shown in color.
Those who encounter dead links are welcome to let me know; I'll check and either get them corrected or noted as defunct. I received a plea for publishers to get together and standardize their submission guidelines. Some accept single-spaced documents, some want 1.
Some want MS Word. Some want one space after each sentence, others require two spaces. I've seen publishers state that if their particular formats are not followed to the letter, submissions will be deleted unread. My inclination is to do it my way, which was good enough for traditional publishers for 40 years, or moderately adapted for electronic format, and any electronic publisher who objects can do without my business.
Let the publisher change the format to please itself. If someone cares to offer a standardized format, I'll be happy to run it here. Then maybe publishers will start saying "Standardized Format Accepted" and the problem will fade as uncooperative publishers stop receiving submissions.
I understand they are now defunct. The site now requires a password for access. That would be weird for anyone trying to buy and sell books. Material is mostly adult, but no under sex, no animals or killing, but rape, torture, and incest are allowable.
A new book is a "featured product" for two weeks, the most recent being 1, the next most recent, 2, and so on.

|Short Story Ideas||To browse genres, for example, you must click library on a somewhat small taskbar at the top of the page and scroll down to find a list of unorganized genres in highlighted red text. Its not terrible, but in comparison to sites like Wattpad or Inkitt, it's not the best.|
