Diabolical Plots L.L.C. has been publishing nonfiction content continuously since 2008-reviews, interviews, Best Of lists, how-to articles on the subject of writing, and editorials. In 2013, Diabolical Plots launched the Submission Grinder, a free-to-use web tool that helps writers find new markets for their work, find per-market submission response data, and track their submissions. In 2014, Diabolical Plots added to the feed with a monthly posting of original fiction pulled from an anonymous slushpile.
