Lol. So it's either free or $6 (USD or AUD?). Interesting. Anyway, if it's available electronically, and contributors can download a free copy, that seems pretty fair.

USD...

Yeah, that's the point... although having a print vesrion is kinda fun.

BDP doesn't earn any profit... it's the printing cost...

Well, it can be nice to see one's name in print. It's just not the same when you're e-published.

Good luck with this.

Yes, hopefully...

But I'll probably get up a link on Writer's Beat in this section for the free online copy when it's published.

hello SW are you still looking for a submission? I've got something that's quite off the wall.

Saw you on Duotrope, but not P&E. Weird. Am I just not looking under the correct title?

A few things:

- BDP is now happy to advertise writing-relating websites, etc. For instance, we have added Writer's Beat and the latest e-zine's link to our site
- We are willing to create a book trailer for you for free

For these, contact us at burntduck@gmail.com.

Limited time only.

Good to know.

Hey, what happened to the actual link to the BDP site, anyway?

Where, what?

What I mean is, I don't see a link to your BDP site in your signature, when it used to be there. All I see is the email, which would link to the actual site.

With poetry I think it's kind of nice to use both (tradtional and e-zine). But then poetry's different to fiction writing (you only have a few lines to worry about!).

Well, you can always type "burnt duck" on google and we come up... but yeah, I'll add it in.

Recently, I've been getting quite a lot of poetry... People keep submitting numerous works at one time, I have to reject some or ask them to submit to the next anthology...

Lol. It's good, though.

Important:
I am very sorry to say that we will have to undergo a change. Reviewing our situation, we have contemplated and considered our possible publishing solutions.

Rather than employing a printing press to bulk publish our book, we are sorry but we have to turn to this solution. Here are the changes.

BDP works almost like a “self publishing author”. Basically, we collect fiction/poetry. Then, in our anthology, we get it published by Lulu. However, the bigger difference is, we have a large market for our books, and we can advertise. Of course, we could do the same for you, under our name – meaning that we’ll advertise for you wherever we can, together with our anthologies which come out every several months. We’ll see whether we can do a book trailer.
We are a non-profit company. We do not earn. This means some of the privileges that come with traditional publishing will not be there, such as Royalties and IBSN.

BDP is releasing in ~ a week from now.

We will also, later on, be releasing - an anthology of poems by Anthony Davis.

Any LAST MINUTE submissions WILL be taken... we would not mind filling the last few pages... that does not mean, however, we will accept any old unpolished item.

We have had to reject quite a few submissions because of lack of proofreading.

Thank you.

There doesn't seem to be a link to the PDF, SW.

Thank you.

I'm quite disappointed, actually...

We had to turn to Lulu in the end, because of our decision... Thus the disclaimer.

By the way, what?

And I did notice quite a few paragraphs in the fiction pieces that weren't spaced.

Why are you disappointed that you had to turn to Lulu? Where else did you think of going to get this done?

Formatting was a bit of a problem.

Well, not that I do, but some people seem to think Lulu's an easy way out.

Thus, they may not submit because they fear they will not get enough publicity.

On the other hand, its been released for one day and we've got already 15 hits...
Hm.

Oh, that was a double post. Pardon.

Do you have to format everything before it goes to Lulu, or do you format things after you upload?

And I know a few people you publish with Lulu, so . . . Where else would you have published? I don't even know how the big or independent publishers do it.

Can't you get it put on Amazon?

...no... because I need an ISBN. And it costs, roughly, around $70.00.

There are some reasons why we can't support this: we are non profit, and because there is some deal with our credit cards not being applicable for use in these.

No, formatting has to be before... Basically, Lulu does nothing except print.

We were planning to get some mass publisher to do it. But, no, we couldn't. In the end.
