Discussions about Magazines and Markets

My two cents: the sky is not falling. Pick any point in the previous five years, and markets are always rising and falling, with the tide. In this case, you simply have two closing markets. It's much ado about nothing, and I think it points to something that I feel strongly about: authors, if you're targeting just one niche market for your material, well . . . don't. You're asking for trouble.

Diversify is today's special word.
