I've lucked out at Beat to a Pulp with Elaine Ash coming onboard to edit stories. Elaine owned a publishing company in Toronto, Canada, and has worked with writers and directors in Hollywood for a decade, including names like Terry Gilliam, Mike Figgis, Lars Von Trier, Roland Joffe and more. If you have submitted a story to BTAP, you will probably be hearing from Elaine over the next few months.
I can personally attest to Elaine's editing skills as she is the one who gave me initial guidance on my story "Blubber" which won second place in the 10 Minute Read fiction contest in the current issue of Out of the Gutter.
In other news, our BTAP home and guidelines pages will go up this Friday. I made a slight mistake by not having a set of guidelines in place before our announcement of seeking submissions. The cart was put ahead of the horse so to speak. So, come back in two days for the link, and you'll be able to take a look at what we're looking for and, at the same time, get a sneak peek of the website.
