Useful Publishing Blogs

Published by at 1:30 am under Research and Resources

  • Query Shark: Condensing a 300 page novel into an intriguing page is difficult, but this site provides excellent advice about how to write queries effectively.
  • Pub Rants.  The author of this site is friendly and patient.  That’s a refreshing change of pace for the publishing industry.
  • Evil Editor.  This is maybe a bit more humorous than helpful, but it’s quite entertaining.  Written by the author of Why You Don’t Get Published.

    “Evil Editor” does sound amusing.

    I am a big fan of Evil Editor. In fact, I submitted my query for “Don’t Forget the Deathray” because I get the feeling that he knows the nonfiction market better than I do. (In any case, two sets of eyes are better than one).

    I’m sort of dreading a response like “dear God, you don’t have a chance of publishing this how-to guide without industry experience,” but even that would be worthwhile.

    I’ll back you up! *cough* not that I have any authority/knowledge about … anything … in the publishing industry.
