http://www.lightspeedmagazine.com/ is also a SF&F magazine,and I should read that too.
DID I GET INSPIRED OR ANYTHING?
My current game plan:
Spend at least a week sleeping on this before I do anything about it;
Self-pub the novel on Amazon. It's broken into long chapters, four per novel. I can do those separately, with the first one being free.
I will need thumbnail-friendly cover art. My skills fail at big elaborate cover paintings of the type I fantasize about, but I could probably make a thumbnail.
And I will also need to learn to typeset for e-book. That shouldn't take too long.
Produce more publicity, so that I have cards to hand out at conventions.
Give this thing one more good strong read-through, and toss it out there.
If it's good enough, publishers and editors will happen for subsequent books.
Finish the short stories too.
Always be writing.
