Hello bookish friends! I'm back at it with another guest blogger in the wings (probably sometime next month), and a wild idea.

The last ten years has wrought great change upon the publishing model.  What will the next decade bring? As a twenty-year veteran of the ever-adapting hobby game and computer game market, as a game designer and storyteller with over a hundred titles to my credit, I’ve seen first-hand how...

Wander around in these fields for awhile and some avenue should open for authors wanting agents and publishers. It seems to offer something for everyone, though there is (of course) lots of repetition. [DE] * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  Literary Agents Share Manuscript Wish Lists By ...

I got turned onto Hope Clark's website quite a while ago and have been very pleased with it. She offers so many articles and tips for writers as well as lists of writing contests, residences and retreats, conferences and even publishers/agents who are looking for manuscripts. She offers two free...
