One of the projects I wanted to develop when I bought this domain was to produce a quarterly magazine for Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy shorts, especially those with a twist to the tale. I will mainly be concentrating on Flash Fiction but will sometimes delve into Novelettes as well.
This project was going to be a long term project, gradually developing as I developed my own writing and knowledge. It was not to be a place for my own writing but a place to publish others writing.
Recently I’ve felt that this project could be pushed forward quite quickly and to that end the main site – www.wickedwords.co.uk will become the base for this Quarterly Magazine and thesearemywickedwords.wordpress.com will be where my own writing will be based.
Work will be remunerated at a semi-pro level so I won’t be asking anyone to give something for nothing and initially this will all be from my own pocket but hopefully I will be able to get it self-funding soon enough.
The Wicked Words main site will also be where my Web Presence business will be based from now on.
I’m working in the background right now to update the main site to reflect these changes in direction so look forward to seeing these very soon (Mid to Late March), but until then I will still be writing as much as I can.
