February’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

For Readers

Ahh February! The month where even the most Spartan among us buy roses for our significant others. Finding love can be tough, so EDF would like to set the mood for your adventures in passion with a string of romance stories from authors including Oonah V Joslin, Mike Whitney, and Walter Giersbach, author of our Valentine’s Day story: “Ghost of a Valentine”.

This month, in addition to our interview with January’s most-read author (to be announced) on the 15th, we are featuring a story by Ramon Rozas III, author of our most widely read story ever, “Security Question” (published on October 4, 2007, with over 10,000 reads and counting).

Finally, EDF’s server and site are being moved to a new, more powerful data center. The move will begin Friday, February 8th at 10PM PST and is expected to last up to 8 hours, until Saturday, February 9th, 6AM PST. We apologize for the inconvenience (especially to our readers across the Pond, who will be unable to access the site in their prime reading time) but we hope this will greatly enhance the loading speed and general experience of the site.

For Writers

We are now looking for St. Patrick’s Day stories. Please mark your Irish-themed pieces as “St. Patrick’s Day Submission” in the author bio section (in addition to your bio), and it will receive special consideration (so that we if have to reject it, you can still submit it elsewhere).

The Preditors & Editors poll has now closed and thanks to your efforts, Every Day Fiction finished in the top ten in both the “Best Fictionzine” category and the “Best Editors” category. Considering some of the competition we were up against, we’re both immensely flattered. This just goes to show you how special EDF has come to be to a lot of people.

We’d also like to congratulate some authors whose stories did particularly well in the poll:

Favourite Short Story – General

13) Sarah Hilary, “Lolita’s Lynch Mob
24) Steve Goble, “Tell’s Choice
27) Robert J Santa, “For Cabbages and Ale
28) Kathleen Mack, “Truth

  • Thanks for posting this – I’d forgotten to check the P&E Poll. Congrats to Jordan and Camille – well-deserved rankings! And to all the writers who got placed, esp. Gay for coming third in Romance – what a great result!

    🙂
