Our latest special publication, The Writer's Guide to Getting Published, has just been mailed to everyone who purchased it in advance. Newsstand copies should start appearing in bookstores in the next couple of weeks.
Getting Published offers 92 pages of expert advice on taking your idea or finished work to the next step: publication. We've brought together some of the best voices in writing and publishing from the pages of The Writer, who guide you through everything from crafting magazine queries and book proposals to working with editors and finishing the right agent. They show you how to "read" a potential market and help you target an editor who's a good match for your work. In addition, we list 365 agents, publications and publishers that are looking for submissions.
The Writer's Guide to Getting Published costs just $8.95, and if you order now you'll receive free shipping. Or, look for copies at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores later this month.
Publishers Weekly, the magazine on publishing and bookselling, has announced a new promotion to drive customers to the nation's bookstores. The first annual National Bookstore Day will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, to celebrate "bookselling and the vibrant culture of bookstores." Participating stores, which number about 40 at this point, will hold special events that day. Authors are invited to participate as well by, for example, conducting readings or workshops, or by donating copies of their books for raffles and giveaways.
For more information, go to Publishers Weekly or e-mail PWEvents@reedbusiness.com.
