  1. Hey, Circlet,

    I tried to buy “The Softness of his Fur 1” this morning; Paypal says the transaction went through *twice*, but when I was redirected back to Circlet it gave me a “403: You Are Not Authorized To View That Page” and I was never given my book.


    1. I have had the same problem. As I use my Twitter account professionally I don’t want it linked with my purchasing preferences and you have no contact email address! I was labouring, deludedly it would seem, under the opinion that you were a professional company so why do you not allow people to contact you? The book I was trying to purchase was “The Electrofluidic Age” and, while I can appreciate that occasional website errors happen I strongly object to the fact that I cannot contact you privately. Book or refund please.

      1. I downloaded the book from the email you sent me. Thank you for that. My comments regarding an inability to contact you still stand!

        1. We’re working on that, Simon! I’ve unearthed the Contact Us page from the depths of inaccessability now.

  2. Dear Cecilia Tan:
    The purpose of this letter is to introduce myself as the principal of provocadv.com (marketing/adv) and as a freelance writer/photographer. I would like to offer my creative services in helping Circlet Press with photographing and designing book covers for any upcoming titles/releases? I’m sure your contributing writers supply you with images or you use stock images, but if you could send me your email address, I will forward you samples of my work for your review.

    “It’s very rare that I ask everyone around me to stop what they are doing and listen to a story. For this to happen, the story has to be very, very good – like yours. Loved it.”

    I appreciate your time and consideration on this matter, Cecilia, and would certainly be delighted to discuss this matter further with you at your earliest convenience. Many thanks.

    1. “Pro tip” to Clive and anyone else seeking jobs. If you want to prove your competence in the Internet Age, leaving your resume as a comment on random blogs is in fact the way to demonstrate the opposite.

  3. Is there anywhere one could contact you about questions about the stories written by myself? To see if they are good enough to be published by you?

    1. Liisa, we only accept stories as parts of anthologies when an anthology is being put together. At this time there are none being worked on, but we are open to Halloween-themed microfictions until October 15th. See the guidelines here: https://www.circlet.com/?p=4346
