Elaine Ash, Editor at Large for BTAP

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.

That's awesome, David. If you ever get a Western submission from Joshua DeMajor, you'll know it's me!

Gasp: Chris isn't Chris!

David: I'm looking for a link to BTAP, and missing it. Maybe I need a little more coffee.

David Cranmer said...

Chris, Thanks and DeMajor has been mentally filed.

Junosmom, Tomorrow we will have a link to the site and the guidelines page. BTAP debuts in full on 12/15. So, your coffee is strong enough.

I've been in touch with Elaine regarding my forthcoming Jack Martin story in BTP. She picked up on a point that I think has strengthened the story and also helped keep my language in period. Well done David

Rachel Burton said...

Congratulations on your win with Blubber! I'm looking forward to checking out your ezine!

David Cranmer said...

Thanks Charles.

Patti, I'm terrible at these things but I'll give it a try.

Archavist, Thanks and many thanks to Elaine... A Man Called Masters is a great western. I think it could fit in easily with a Zane Grey collection.

Rachel, thanks. It's going up with a bang on the 15th. I hope you enjoy it.

This sounds really cool.

Looking forward to the challenge of reading something good online, which I'm sure this will be 100%.

Glad I found your blog.
