Hi Robert! I published my short story through createspace.com and so far it has been great. It, for me, was one way I found to at least get my story printed, published and able to market, so give them a look and see what you think. Let me know and best wishes!!

Hi Robert. There are so many different avenues for getting published and so many different markets. Networking and writing good queries have worked well for me. Persistence is the key.
