If I had to describe my book, Because of Mindy Wiley, I’d classify it as a Southern Gothic horror with a little magical realism thrown in, or, more specifically, “where V.C. Andrews meets Mormonism” (see: https://sarahleastories.com/because-of-mindy-wiley/). I am reworking several chapters from it to submit to “The Midnight Diner,” which describes themselves as a “hardboiled genre anthology with a Christian slant.” The journal seems to combine two of my favorite things: noir and religion. Many of my stories (in my opinion) have always been too religious for the mainstream market and not religious enough for the Christian/LDS market.
Though I still write what I want, I am writing for specific markets/tailoring my existing work (without compromising my craft) for certain publications, as well. The best site I have found for writing jobs is writingcareer.com.
