Hello, I'm Jochannon; I've been publishing online for about two years, strictly small-time, but I do have dreams.

WHAT I'M DOING

Every week I publish original stories, poetry, fan fiction, one Edgefolk story, and email them to my subscribers.

I also publish comics, manga, cartoons and visual stories of all sorts: jochannon.deviantart.com/journ…

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

I will take literature from any genre.

No limit on the length of poetry or stories, but I have time constraints, so longer pieces are harder to read, so are less likely to be accepted.

RIGHTS

Once I have published a piece of art, all rights to it revert to the creator.

GUIDELINES

Sex: it's normal, it's natural, having sex in work will not disqualify it, but I will not publish pornography or erotica.

Considering the previous paragraph, artwork touching on rape or pedophilia must handle the subject with delicacy

I reserve the right to not publish any artwork that I find personally offensive.

I will not edit your stories, but publish them exactly the way you submit them. By the same token I will not fix typos.

Re-publishing: If a piece is already published, on DA or Fanfiction.com or elsewhere, that's fine; as long as you own it, you can submit it.


FORMATTING AND SUBMITTING YOUR ARTWORK

Submit your artwork by email to fanaticalweekly@gmail.com with the subject line: [Title] by [Creator's Name]

In the body of the email you may add a cover letter with whatever message you wish to convey, such as a writer's bio and story synopsis: I will add it to the publishing email if I take your story. If you do, then you are absolutely free to add links to your work elsewhere, which is great for you self-publishers: free publicity.

Include in the email a statement that you have read this document and agree to it.

Format your work as you will, but all literature pieces I publish are as PDFs; if you submit a piece not as a PDF I will turn it into a PDF and it may lose some formatting.


SUGGESTIONS TO WRITERS

I suggest that you join the website Helium.com and/or Lulu.com; at the first you may post articles poems and stories, and receive one cent US every time someone views them; at the other you may self-publish your works. Then you can link to and advertise your works when you publish any work with me.

IF you are below the age of eighteen, have a parent or guardian read this with you.


SCHEDULE

At present I am publishing once per week on Sunday: sometimes it's late and sometimes early.

QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS

I'd love to hear your questions and comments: comment here, or e-mail me at fanaticalweekly@gmail.com.


FAQs:

Q: How do I know you're a real publisher?

A: Good question, and one I hear a lot; what with internet anonymity, all one can go on is reputation: Epantiras jd896 and RyanTaylorGirl have all worked with me before, and have graciously agreed to serve as references; if you want to know more about me, ask them.

Q: Can I do anything to help?

A: Tell people about this, that would be a great help.

Q: What do I get out of it?

A: Free stories and poetry in your mailbox every week. Subscribers can also submit their stories to be published.

Q: What do you get out of it?

A: Fun, ego boost and I'm a writer myself, so I use this to get free publicity just like any other self-publisher.

Q: What do you publish?

A: Original fiction, fan fiction, and poems from all genres, hopefully art books and comics coming soon.

Q: So what are you looking for? People to submit art, or people to join your mailing list?

A: Both, really. I am trying to get people to subscribe to my mailing list, all subscribers can submit art of theirs to be published.

Q: What about other kinds of art?

A: I am willing to publish other kinds of art; if you want to publish another kind of art, then write to me saying so, and we'll work something out.

Q: I don't write English well; can I publish a story in my mother language?

A: For the moment at least, I work in English. Once I've become more established, I hope to branch out.

Q: How can I be sure my art won't be stolen?

A: I'm afraid one can never be entirely sure; not very long ago, a friend of mine had her art stolen here on dA. But everything I publish is protected by the Jochannon Art No-Theft Guarantee: jochannon.deviantart.com/journ…


[ATTENTION PLEASE!

There are several groups who were kind enough to help me, telling their watchers about this, and I want to give them proper credit. Unfortunately, I have both a bad memory, and am a bad record-keeper; if you were directed here by some groups, please tell which group so I can do them justice. Thank you.]

No. It's for free: that's the whole point of it.
