Some of you will know this term from a previous blog.
To those who are unsure; it means a magazine editor looks for his favourite writers first, so an Indie writer who is not known has little chance of getting on.
Today, for an exercise I am going to check one of the magazines I subscribe to, to see just how bad it affects the choice. Even without checking my free downloads for joining. I noticed one name jump out at me, for the last two issues.
The free downloads were random copies I chose, mainly for the cover art. As I had no idea what was in them.
