Published SO Far (More About Baldy)

I have enjoyed some small success with publishing some of my poetry as you may be interested to hear (and one likes to occasionally blow one’s own trumpet). I always like to hear about other writers’ acomplishments and, for whatever reason you write, it is always nice to have some kind of audience. Below are what I have had published so far:

    I am very impressed Baldy… the only thing I’ve had published is a training manual I wrote when I worked at the Campbell’s Soup Distribution Center for Exel Logistics

    • thank you, I appreciate that, T.J. I had some teaching stuff published for the prisons and a weaning programme for a chain of childrens’ nurseries as well as an excerpt of a poem of mine published in a small collection for the samaritans regarding the prisons’ ‘listners’ service. I am proud of my accomplishments and rarely talk about them which is silly as I think we ALL should be pleased with our progress. I would love to hear about anyone’s good news, especially pertaining to writing. Have you tried submitting anything tocompetitions and/or agents/publishers? I know that publishing poetry is a shit to accomplish, hence my discovery of wordpress and research in to the industry. Still trying to publish my fantasy stuff (not confident about the publisher I submitted it too as haven’t heard anything in eleven weeks but will keep trying). I believe in you, sir, I am certain of your ability.

  2. I’m looking to self publish my 1st anthology – soon as I get a cover and find a formatter….

    • cool, I know nothing about self publishing but believe in you and back you all the way. Sahm King, Charles Yellowitz and King Midget are hot on that sort of thing and could probably be good with advice. Mine were all published in anthologies that I entered competitions for or magazines that I submitted to. Still waiting on the big break (like everyone else) and will find time to send more out soon (still waiting to hear from a publisher about my first fantasy novel, fingers crossed). Best of luck.

  3. so glad to know of your remarkable successes – I wish you many more -I don’t submit my work but I’m thinking of self publishing – just not sure I have the energy for such a project

  4. I’m sure it is in you somewhere, Paul! Prtobably lurking behind your tremendous talent. I believe in you.
