Yes, they are paying! 0.5 cents per word. emoticon

Well, it took me more than two years of submitting the story in order to place it. So, don't give up, guys. Get those stories written and sent out to magazines.

Just proves that with enough work and attempts anyone can get published, I guess getting the first few breaks is the hardest, at least, with Firlefanz it seems like that. emoticon
