Alright is there a place other than the major magazines where I can publish my short stories and get paid for it on the internet?

Hi!
Interesting site you have here... Seems peaceful compared to some of the ones I'm on. Shall we say more civil. So I thought it might be worth a shot to ask my question.

I've heard there's a way to publish on the internet. Something like a pay as you view website. Needless to say I haven't found it or I'm using the wrong search parameters. Someone told me to set up my own but my computer skills don't extend quite that far. So I thought maybe one of ya' all might know. Anyway if anyone has any ideas I'm all ears.

Closest I know to what you are asking is selling your digital book on Amazon. I know of others that write books then post them for sale there.

I've looked at the Amazon website but am unsure/leery of how it operates.

Is there anyone here that has first hand knowledge about Amazon and their publishing?

As I'm told, online publishing is a nightmare, especially getting paid. You really have to trust whoever is posting your work. Then there are the legal issues. Other than "fair usage" clauses and Copyrights, I admit, much of it I know nothing about. So you really want to find someone that does. Knowing, is the difference between selling your work, and giving it away. Many of my friends ended up giving years of work away, just because they "didn't know".

I'm guessing you're not a writer by profession, based on the fact you're asking us for advice. But just in case, I'll offer up two of my friends for you to get info from.

Trey Wickwire

Trey is a writer by profession. He and I ran into each other through Syfy.com's message board (never met in person). Although currently working on television projects, he is also published in comics. In my discussions with him, he has a great deal of experience and knowledge in the field and is very approachable.

Wil Tibbetts

Wil is NOT a writer by profession. He and I have been friends for many years, and he also is published. What he did might be what you are looking for:

Emily Reynolds Saga: Book One: Survival

Either or both can give you much better advice than I can. Hope this helps.
