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? Literary Fiction? Post it here.

October’s Table of Contents
