STRUGGLING TO GET IT PUBLISHED: ABSOLUTE WRITE

Previously, I introduced you to the helpful site for writers, Preditors & Editors, where you can go to investigate the reputation of agents and publishers. This site provides the chance for writers to avoid making poor decisions while attempting to get their work published. This present post concerns another extremely helpful site with the same purpose, Absolute Write.

Absolute Write is a popular and important site to use when approaching the publishing industry. Many times, when you search the internet for a specific agent or publisher, a reference made on Absolute Write will be one of the first hits. This site deals exclusively with opinions of writers telling of their experience using agents and publisher. You can follow a thread of conversations about agents or publisher you may be interested in contacting and see how other writers felt about their interaction with these individuals or businesses. Anyone can read, but to make a comment you must join, which I highly recommend and which is free.

Here’s a link to the site:

STRUGGLING TO GET IT PUBLISHED: PREDITORS & EDITORS

You’ve spent endless hours giving birth to your baby; you’ve finished your novel. Now that effort is ready to enter the world of publishing. Be careful, do your homework. You may not believe it, but another major, perhaps greater, effort is about to begin.

Tell you a story. I once had my novel, The Beast Awaits, accepted by a small publisher. Excitement poured for every cell of my body, then I did my homework and you know what hit the fan. I went to Preditors & Editors and found they recommended staying away from this publisher. The reason, their contract took away a great deal of the author’s control. My novel remains unpublished, but at least I’m not in a situation that would be detrimental to my work. Once you are ready to publish, Preditors & Editors is one of the go-to sites before signing on the dotted line.

Getting your work published can be a little tricky to say the least. More posts will follow concerning where to look when choosing a publisher or an agent. Stay tuned.

Here’s a link to Preditor’s & Editors:

After some thought, I’ve decided to add, at the end of every post, links to sites where you can find my work. I hope my faithful readers, along with first-time visitors, will take a look.
