    My magazine subscription was a gift. I was told it would be a years subscription. I only received Octobers issue. Is this because I never registered until just now?

    How do i write a story sorry im new to this.

      Check out my blog for information on epublishing. http://goinpostalnj.blogspot.com/

      If you are asking how to write a short story, as opposed to getting published, then I can post an article specifically about that.

      Elements of a Short Story:
      Setting: Where, When– be as descriptive as you can be
      Theme: What is the purpose of the story? Is it a moral issue?
      Conflict: This is the plot of the story
      Rising Action, Climax, and Falling Action, then a resolution.

      How does all this translate?

      Take my ebook, Honor Never Fades, for example. It is about a 17yr old who enlists in the army during vietnam.

      The conflict in this is trying to get his family to accept his decision to join the army.
      The rising action includes the time he spent with his family before his training & deployment.
      The climax comes when he gets killed in vietnam.
      The falling action occurs when his parents are notified.
      The resolution, his father cannot handle the guilt of pushing his son into believing how great the military is– the father commits suicide.

      Be sure to visit my blog or contact me, and I will help you the best I can. :)

      If you look under ‘resources’ on the menu bar at the top of the site, you’ll find a button for eBooks. I think this might be what you’re looking for.
