I believe a person should know what they’re walking into before they go head long into battle and make no mistake about it--getting published is a fight. It takes knowledge and strategies; knowing when to retreat and when to push the boundaries. It is a never-ending learning process--just when you think you’ve got a grasp on the industry, it evolves into something new and ever-changing.
- Publisher’s Weekly which gives you daily reports of what is happening in the writing world.
- Subscribe to Writer’s Digest
- Read Agent’s blogs. Chip MacGeogor and Steve Laube offer tons of information on the publishing front.
- Also, look at what ABA publishing houses are aquiring--Christian Fiction is generally two year behind them in ‘fad’ books like Chick Lit, so keep and eye on the ABA market to see what’s coming down the pike.
