Help for Those Looking to Write and Publish

Are you a writer? Here are some helpful tips to help get you started on the path to becoming an author:
 
  • Some quality samples of query letters (a writers resume) can be found on literary agent Kristen Nelson's blog, Pub Rants. The letters can be found on the sidebar of the blog.
  • Writing a synopsis is no easy feat, there is a reason they call it the dreaded synopsis. Romance author Carolyn Jewel gives some great tips, links and samples on her website.
  • Because we writers like to look out for each other, the website Preditors and Editors is here to help you stay away from iffy agencies and publishing houses. Also check out AAR (Association of Authors Representatives) website. An agent who is a member of AAR is an agent you can trust, but to be fair, there are many agencies who are not part of AAR and are still legit.
  • To keep up on industry news you can become a member of Publishers Lunch for a nominal fee or you can subscribe to their newsletter (for free).
  • There is a plethora of helpful info on the Writer's Relief website, specifically, in this loaded post: Most Popular Writing and Publishing Articles: Learn How To Get Published.

    Wonderful blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really like to be a part of online community where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thank you!
