Thank you so much for the wonderful comment on my wall! It totally made my day! I work long hours at my day job, so when I come home to notes like that, it makes the long hours of writing at night worth it! And yes, I would love to answer your questions for your project! Why don't you email them to me? My email address it tonyaroyston5@gmail.com (or you can send me a note from the contact page on my website). However, I'm not familiar with the Steampunk genre. But I'll answer any other questions I can! Hope to hear from you soon!

Teagan,

I looked for open submission calls that related to the genre I was writing, and went from there. Sometimes you can't get the exact theme you want (I have a haunted house story that I wanted to have published, but all submissions related to that were closed or non-existent *sad face*), but that also gives you the chance to challenge yourself. The best advice I can give, as I'm still kind of green at this myself, is to just keep writing. I leave that at the end of all my reviews because it's true– the more words you write, the more you edit, the harder you try, the better you'll do. In all honesty, I don't submit to professional publishers much anymore, submission calls aside. I've had a ton of rejections and would rather be perfecting the work I'm truly passionate about behind the scenes, so if an agent or publisher ever does come knocking, I know I'll have something capable of blowing their minds. I've noticed that you like steampunk, so here are a couple links you can consider: http://mochamemoirspress.com/about/submission-guidelines/ ---> This publisher accepted my first short story, CALL FROM THE GRAVE, so I already submitted for the steampunk anthology. https://coffintreehill.wordpress.com/ ---> I haven't been accepted for anything via this site, but it's a great one to look at just to see what's open. A bit of a long rant, but hopefully this helps! ;)
