Ralan Conley’s Interview from Ralan.com on Flames Rising

Previously, I had mentioned that one of the best freelancer resources on the web is through Ralan.com. If you haven’t checked out this site, I highly recommend that you do so in short order. Ralan offers a wealth of information on genre (and even some non-genre) places that request submissions. Even if you aren’t in a position to sell right now, it serves as an up-to-date, accurate guidebook to assessing what rates are for different publications.

I am pleased to announce that not only did Ralan agree to an interview, he was kind enough to be patient with us as we launched the redesign of Flames Rising.

Please give Ralan the attention he deserves; the information he offers on his site is “free” and he survives on the support of others but he is, what I would consider, the true spirit of a writing community.

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
