The more time I spend in the writing world, the more I find the Writer’s Digest site and subsequent books to be of phenomenal help. They give information on everything from how to write to how to find an agent to how to publicize yourself so your writing sells. Every question a writer could have can be answered in one convenient place: http://www.writersdigest.com.
Whenever I need information, this is the first place I go. Most of the time the information I need can be found specifically from Chuck Sambuchino, the editor of “Guide to Literary Agents.” If you’re looking for new agents in particular for your manuscript, I’d suggest going to his blog. He has a section that features new agents and veteran agents who are looking to increase their client list. He also features guest posts from new and existing authors who have a new book coming out. Comment on their post and you could win a chance at a free copy of their new book! That’s how I got my own copy of “Sebastian Falls” by Celeste Holloway. It took a couple months for Mr. Sambuchino to notify me that I had won a free copy, but Ms. Holloway wasted no time in sending me a signed copy of her book. Needless to say, I was super excited when I checked my mail and saw I had a package. It was like Christmas in September!
Ms. Holloway has her own blog at http://www.celholloway.blogspot.com. I’d give it a look if I was you.
As always, have fun writing and, when all hope seems lost, don’t give up! Keep on putting one foot in front of the other and you’ll come out all right in the end.
