Thanks Kay, I did wonder about that. Will do so now.

These were written for my wife. She is learning italian and needed a short story, and as she had no inspiration, I wrote these for her, which she then translated into italian. In the mean time, her teacher has said we should get them published, but I doubt that will happen!

Interesting. You might consider publishing an e-book. Joe Sharp (see Ruggie board) has done this. I don't think that I would see this as a revenue stream but more as a way of getting published without it costing too much. I have friends here in Delhi who are book publishers too if that would help.

As I understand it, to get a publisher to pay you and to put up the costs for publication, you probably have to go through the process of getting enough rejection slips to wallpaper a room before you get anywhere.

That said, you might be able to sell short stories to some magazines. The Writers and Artists Yearbook might give you some ideas.

How many stories have you got? :D
