Over the weekend, I decided to take a look at some pointers on submitting short stories. I ran across two articles that put the focus on your email address.
The main point in the first article was your user name. I would think it would be common sense not to use firstname.lastname@example.org for submitting work to a publisher. The article made me think that maybe it's not common sense. You want your user name to be professional not personal.
The second article had not occurred to me. Its focus was on which email account you used. It suggested not using free email like Hotmail and Yahoo. If your own domain is not available, it suggested using Gmail. Now I wonder does it really matter.
Will an editor turn down your work because of your email address? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
