October’s Table of Contents

A Look Back

Well, we’ve nearly reached the end of Every Day Fiction’s first month in operation, and on behalf of the team here at EDF, we’d like to thank you for your support, both in terms of the number of submissions we’ve received and the number of readers who faithfully comment on every story. You guys help are helping to develop EDF into a vibrant community of fiction lovers. And you’ve helped us grow! In our first month, we’ve attracted nearly 700 daily subscribers and over 20,000 unique visitors who’ve commented nearly 600 times!

Every Day Fiction is constantly developing. This month, we introduced the EDF Forums, which we hope will become a meeting place where lovers of fiction can come together to discuss their favorite topics and stories. For writers, we have “Brag” sections, as well as an area where you can promote your work. We have also created an area where you can post feedback to the editors. Want more fantasy in EDF?

October’s Table of Contents

  • Hey … can I get a link to stevegoble.com in that ToC? I thought I asked for one, but I probably forgot.

    Looks like a good lineup … with some intriguing titles. “The Ravages of Tim” is a good one.

    — Steve

    • Your website field in our database was blank, but I have updated it--and the TOC above also. We're pretty pleased with our lineup for October too!
    • Steve, Sorry about that. I saw that you didn't enter a website on your submission, which I thought was odd. I should have just added it myself cause I read your blog, but I erred on the side of caution. I'm glad you spoke up though!
  • Thanks!

  • Eek! My link is broken (there’s an extra http// in there). I must’ve mistyped it when I submitted — can anything be done about it at this late date?

    • Sarah, Probably my fault! I thought I'd tested them all before posting. In any case, it's fixed now!
  • Lyn

    Maybe this month’s contents could be a link in the sidebar (special heading) so we can see which ones we’ve read and have yet to read. Just my 2 cents.

    • Great suggestion! Our long suffering WebMaster is setting up a "calendar" format on the sidebar that will allow much easier navigation from story to story.
