[Linkage] P is for Publishers

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)

P is for Publishers:

Do you have a publisher? How did you find them?

P.S. #NALitChat is going to be a Google+ hangout tonight--kind of like a New Adult panel. You can find details here. :)

I can't remember what website listing led me to my publisher, although I do remember browsing through Preditors and Editors.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I found mine by a tip on query tracker. There was very little info about World Castle, so I asked a fellow querier who had published with Karen, the owner, he was a fan, so I gave it a shot!

C. Lee McKenzie said...

I hadn't heard of Researching Small Presses. That sounds excellent. Thanks, Carrie.

Stephen Tremp said...

I have a publisher. Me, myself, and I. That's about as good as it gets at the moment.

Robin said...

Preditors and Editors is a great site. And I'm so impressed with Sharon Bayliss. CHARGE!

Samantha May said...

I love Preditors and Editors! Great site. Thanks for the links :)

I missed yesterday's. Dang. Off to check it out next. As for my publisher, I was introduced by the distributor of my first novel. No, that doesn't happen often. I was very fortunate.

Great resources. Absolute Write does seem to have a thread for everything and they'll let know know their opinions, good and bad.

Nancy Thompson said...

I used them all!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Great.... that Preditors and Editors site looks like a terrific source.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Knowing publishers is important.

I used to hang at Absolute Write... lots of great folks over there. And as you say, something for everyone. :)

Melissa said...

Great links! My bookmark list is filling up...
;)

Julie Luek said...

I need to just bookmark your whole A-Z posts! Thanks again, Carrie.

Carrie Butler said...

Whatever site it was, it must've been a big help! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Asking around definitely helps! I talked to a couple of friends with SSP before I queried. :)

Carrie Butler said...

No problem, Lee! It's worth looking into. :)

Carrie Butler said...

It certainly makes research easier. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Yeah! Sharon is awesome. :D

Carrie Butler said...

I agree! :) You're welcome, Sam!

Cynthia said...

These are great resources. I've been on Absolute Write before- there's so much I can sift through on that web site.

Fairview said...

Great resources

Carrie Butler said...

Oo, what a blessing! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Absolutely. You have to sort through everything, keeping in mind that anyone can say anything--researched or not. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Me too. :D

Carrie Butler said...

It is! You'll have to check it out. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Absolutely. :)

Carrie Butler said...

I go through phases with AW. I'll hang out until I read someone's super ranty thread, and then I'll need a little distance from the negativity. (Lest I join in. LOL)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Melissa! :) Woohoo!

Carrie Butler said...

I'm glad you're enjoying them! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Cynthia! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Fairview! :)
