P is for Publishers:
Preditors & Editors - A good resource to check out before you query.2018 UPDATE: Preditors & Editors is no more, but Reedsy has a great page on Author Scams and Publishing Companies to avoid!
- Absolute Write Water Cooler - There's a discussion for just about every pub out there. Take all opinions with a grain of salt.
- Sharon Bayliss' "Researching Small Presses" - A reminder to do your homework. ;)
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.
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!
I hadn't heard of Researching Small Presses. That sounds excellent. Thanks, Carrie.
I have a publisher. Me, myself, and I. That's about as good as it gets at the moment.
Preditors and Editors is a great site. And I'm so impressed with Sharon Bayliss. CHARGE!
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.
I used them all!
Great.... that Preditors and Editors site looks like a terrific source.
Knowing publishers is important.
I used to hang at Absolute Write... lots of great folks over there. And as you say, something for everyone. :)
Great links! My bookmark list is filling up...
I need to just bookmark your whole A-Z posts! Thanks again, Carrie.
Whatever site it was, it must've been a big help! :)
Asking around definitely helps! I talked to a couple of friends with SSP before I queried. :)
No problem, Lee! It's worth looking into. :)
It certainly makes research easier. ;)
Yeah! Sharon is awesome. :D
I agree! :) You're welcome, Sam!
These are great resources. I've been on Absolute Write before- there's so much I can sift through on that web site.
Oo, what a blessing! :)
Absolutely. You have to sort through everything, keeping in mind that anyone can say anything--researched or not. :)
Me too. :D
It is! You'll have to check it out. :)
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)
Thanks, Melissa! :) Woohoo!
I'm glad you're enjoying them! :D
Thank you, Cynthia! :)
Thanks, Fairview! :)
You've got some great resources! I will have to come back after A to Z when I can spend more time here. Thanks for all the good info.
