While We're Waiting...

First of all, I want to thank EVERYONE who's helped make this a successful launch! Whether you were drawn here from the posting in "AFTER MIDNIGHT", or from one of the ads on various web sites, thank you for taking a few minutes to look things over. I hope you'll be back for repeat visits!
As the "Welcome" message at the top of the right-hand column says, I'm welcoming submissions on this site. As noted, please send them to the e-mail link in the message, and please put the word "Submissions" in your title line. You don't need to be an acknowledged expert, but I would hope you'd at least know what you're talking about. Hope to hear from you soon...
While we're waiting, here are a few links to sites that say they can help your writing skills:
