I'm very excited to be part of the second Taboo Tales event in New York City on Monday, October 10th. Taboo Tales is the long-running show from Los Angeles where people tell stories about their fucked-up lives. Come out and see us at The PIT on Monday and I guarantee you'll feel better about yourself.
Now, I'll let Taboo Tales tell you more...
We've learned New Yorkers are pretty fucked up so we're putting on our second show on October 10th. It's Columbus Day so tell all your friends to come out and discover this one of a kind storytelling show where we talk about topics no one wants to discuss in public.
Our BRAVE storytellers for this show will be:
Hosted by Vanessa Golenia and Kejal Macdonald
Happening at the PIT theater (24th and Lex)
7pm. Arrive by 6:30pm.
Save some money and get your tickets in advance!

We also need to send out big thanks to participants Alex DiFrancesco, Barbara Lynn Cantone, Jeremy Blutstein, Berry, and Aida Zilelian for their varied but uniformly excellent readings. And thanks to Q.E.D. for giving us the space and an opportunity to use it.
If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for Saturday, February 4, when we'll we back with our fourth issue, which will include fan-favorite reader Sarah Riccio. What's more, we'll be going monthly starting in February, so there will be more chances than ever to see and hear all the best writing in Queens in 2017!
latest proper manuscript format post
I want to submit a novel manuscript to a small press in the US and their guidelines say "indented, not tabbed."
What's the difference? Usually I just hit the tab key once. Should I be doing something else?
I have Word Starter 2010, and I can't see any distinction between "indent" and "tab."
How do I make sure I'm indenting and not tabbing? If I'm tabbing, how do I change it to indent?
This is an excellent question, and I'm sure the cause of much confusion among word-processing novices. There is in fact a distinction between tabbing and indentingor rather, it might be more accurate to say that tabbing is only one way to indent a paragraph. I will try to explain a method for indenting paragraphs that makes your document more portable* and easier for your publisher to use.

The trade paperback edition of Deus ex Machina was released late last year, but for the ebook release Sinister Regard has given it a spiffily updated cover. And the ebook is available pretty much everywhere! Smashwords, Kobo, Nook, iBooks and Kindle all have it for a measly $1.99, and it's also available for your reading pleasure on such subscription services as Oyster and Scribd. How do you like me now?
But wait! That's not all! Sinister Regard will be bringing out three more of my books in print and electronic editions over the course of the summer, including two that have never before seen the light of day! First, on June 16th, is Whether We Are Mended, my collection of three long sci-fi love stories, which is also getting a cover that's a vast improvement over its original hardback edition.
