A Letter to the Editors

Dear Editors,

I am a writer and have been writing for some time on the Internet.  I have had a number of somewhat popular “blogs” over the last ten years or so, and am an avid participant in Internet Culture.

I recently completed a book and am interested in having some of it published on “paper”.  I’ve been writing on the net for free long enough to hone my talents, and now think that maybe getting paid for my writing might be possible (I’ve been selling the book to friends and have received a great deal of positive feedback, including the suggestion to write this email).

As mentioned, I wrote a book, but am stilling looking for a good editor (or editors) to help me refine it further before complete publication.

The first three Chapters of the book can be found on my website.

I realize many of you have policies against re-printing “published” material, but I’m not sure how self-publishing on the Net fits into that equation.  I was hoping one or more of you might be able to help out with that question.

Please let me know if any of you are interesting in purchasing a copy of my story (in chapter form) for publication, or have any advice for a young writer trying to make a living at twiddling his fingers over a keyboard.

Thanks you for your time, and I hope you have a Happy New Year!

-Roy M. Taylor
aka “wah on the Internets” and “Roy Taylor” on the facebook (I’ve got some headshots online if that might help you make a decision about my work).

I’ll let you know what they say….

UPDATE: None of those Vanity Fair addresses worked….oh well.  Their loss.  😉

  1. MESSAGE TO EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS:

    When counting the electoral votes, either Congress finds by 1/8/09 that Obama, not being an Article II “natural born citizen”, fails to qualify as President whereupon Biden becomes the full fledged President under 3 USC 19 (free to pick his own VP such as Hillary) or thereafter defers to the Supreme Court to enjoin Obama’s inauguration with Biden becoming only Acting President under the 20th Amendment until a new President is duly determined.

    The preferable choice, at least for the Democrats, should seem obvious.

  2. Personally, I am quite happy with the soon to be President. I actually donated money this time. Of course, nothing Obama does will ever shut the crazies up.
