But writers have also come to rely on the in-depth articles. From Walter Mosley to Alice Sebold, authors share their expertise on subjects like getting on the bestseller list and connecting through words. Experts also share their insight on graphic novels, strengthening your manuscript and even the daily discipline of sitting in your chair to write.
Special sections in addition to the marketing listings include:
* Personal Views
* Craft & Technique
* Getting Published
* For Mystery Writers
* For Romance Writers
* For Science Fiction/Fantasy & Horror Writers
When you've finished reading the articles, find a market for your writing whether you're looking for online publications, literary magazines, consumer magazines or book publishers. You'll also find extensive listings of writing contests and conferences for the year.
Novel & Short Story Writer's Market is the best investment you can make in your writing career. If you're a fiction writer who wants to see your work in print, you need a copy of the current year's guide in your personal library.
You will have to buy a new edition every year since markets change constantly. Fortunately, the editors add new articles and interviews to make the purchase less painful. This time you'll find a much-needed article on scams (aspiring writers are prime targets) and how to identify them. Other new features include "Breaking into Graphic Novels" and a short course on "Craft and Technique." The interviews are always informative, if a little short, and provide ample inspiration to those struggling to get published. As always, you'll find a run-down on manuscript mechanics and how to submit your work.
In recent editions, the editors have realized that novelists can't rely solely on listings since many publishers only consider manuscripts from agents, so they have a solid section with information on agents. Short story writers will page through this book more than most, since they must submit their work themselves.
This market guide is an excellent place for the new writer to start. Once you have an agent, or stop writing short stories, this guide will be less vital to your career.
one tip though, this 2004 is the newest addition, and I would not recommend buying it until you are ready to publish.... The time it takes to finish your novel and be ready to publish may be until the next volume comes out!
