Looking for Authors

We are looking for good authors that have sailing stories they would like to see published. We would really like to see some good liveaboard stories or transition to liveaboard tales.

Any type of story will be considered. Please submit samples to this email address or contact me for more information.

Looking for Authors

Tell me more of what''s on your mind. As an author, I''m a little shy of giving up any rights to any of my writing. What are you going to do with these submissions? Is it your intention to make money? If so, what percentage would be mine should the project take off? Are you affiliated with Liveaboard Magazine? I need a little more information before I send anything. Besides, maybe my writing stinks or I really live in a dumpster in Denver.

I can be reached at editor@socalsailing.com, sorry for the problems I thought I selected the show email option.

As long as your dumpster floats and has a sail or two....

Regarding your call for manuscripts, may I receive details on length to give me an idea what might be appropriate?

Thanks very much,
Charlotte

Looking for Authors

I would think that someone soliciting articles for an unknown publication with a website (www.socalsailing.com) that cannot be found would at least offer some additional information.

Multiply your earning by two...

If you already are a good author, if you have published a very sucessful book.. Why not translate it in other foreign languages and open a much wider market??

For more info, please contact me on: seawolfrench@yahoo.com

see you soon..

Divide by 2

The reason most authors other than technical writers don't jump at translating is that the nuance of the writing is often lost in the translation. Between idioms and confusing words, most craftsmen (or craftswomen, please forgive) of the written word find their best skills in their native tongue. And the subsequent translation attempts seem to do no more than infuriate the editor, alienate the writer, and confound the reader. The old adage of write what you know not only applies to the subject but probably also the language.

Cheers,
Mark
