So …. Believe it or not, I have a few friends. Not many, but a few. One of them is named Diana Lyles, who runs a publishing company by the name of Scribblers and Ink Spillers. I remember when Diana started this up; she took a some chances to get it going and is extremely hard-working and has poured all of her heart and soul into the business.
S&IS has a couple of publications. Their main publication is called "Emerald Tales," which is a themed bimonthly journal of short stories and poetry. S&IS also has "Crystal Codices." The stories in Codices are of any fantasy subject that catches their eye, up to novella length. These publications are available as PDFs online or as bound manuals. Emerald Tales is listed on Ralan’s as a paying market.
Also, S&IS have material available on their website. "Crimson Wire" are short stories that supplement Emerald Tales and have other catchy odds and ends of stories and poems. Those stories are free to read. Last but not least, a young lady by the name of Mette Pesonen has an entire array of stories up known as "The Annals of Hypnosia." It is a light-hearted fantasy following the adventures of Serafyr Halfdrake. Most of these are very tongue-in-cheek and a lot of fun to read. The Annals are also available on the website.
Finally, Diana blogs at The Scribbling Sea Sprite. She does all this by herself. How, I ‘ll never know. I ‘m gonna guess caffeine.

And best of continued luck, Diana.
