Angelique Fawns has submitted, been accepted and rejected by many horror, sci-fi and fantasy editors over the years. 500 rejections. But 30 of her pieces have found homes. She puts that knowledge to our use in her book. Not only does she share places that she has submitted to but she also shared possible venues for the writer that she hasn’t. The venues she has submitted to she shared her experiences with them. But with all the entries she gives a complete and concise listing of what the editor and publication are looking for as well as what the writer can expect in return. That isn’t just monetary return either. This included response time as well as if the editor gives helpful suggests versus sending a form letter rejection.

The entries are complete and concise. The digital copy includes a direct link to the site being discussed so if you feel that your piece is a fit for that magazine you don’t have to do a cute and paste into your search engine. Fawns has done an excellent job of pooling her resources to share.

In the preface she lays out what the reader/writer can expect from her book. From there on it is up to the reader/writer to pick and chose what to read. She has listed the top paying markets (as of the writing) as well as suggestions about the best way to go about submitted your work to each venue.

My only complaint is purely aesthetic. I have my copy on my Kindle and since I read mostly in bed with it my Kindle is set up in dark mode (black background with white type). In that mode the links and table of contents are barely readable as they show up in a red font. However if I change back to traditional background (white with black type) everything shows up perfectly. All in all it is a well written and researched book. I highly recommend it!
