Just Another Manic Monday...

"Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun."
~Colleen C. Barrett

As it is the start of a brand new (crazy) work week, and as I am feeling in every muscle my gardening efforts of this past weekend, I’ll leave you today with nothing witty, nothing particularly exciting to report in my writing world, just 2 links that I think every aspiring writer should have bookmarked:

The Passionate Pen: Romance author Jess Michaels/Jenna Petersen has put together a tremendous amount of romance-genre resources regarding submissions, agents and publishing houses. I use her site, often, when I’m researching new places to send material (she updates regularly, too, which is great).

Piers Anthony: He's a fantasy author who also maintains a great log of Internet publishers. This is a helpful place to search if you’re sending out material or even thinking about it sometime in the future. Along with Preditors and Editors, I find this a very helpful place to discover tips and trends about the market, and to find out who should be avoided and who‘s up-and-coming in the e-publishing world (also updated regularly).

What about you? Any writing/publishing sites that you’d recommend because their content is honest, helpful and reliable?

Thanks for the link. I love Piers Anthony, but it's been a long time since I've read him. I've been obsessing over Anne Perry recently. You've been tagged, girlie ;-)

I like Karen Fox's market news at:

She also has writing tips.

Excellent. Thanks for the links! I've never read any Piers Anthony. Maybe its time to give him a try.

I like both of those sites too. Another one I like that is probably not so well known is Ian Irvine's site (http://www.ian-irvine.com/) He has a really great "The Truth About Publishing" section.

My favortie site is:

www.ralan.com

Ralan lists all active and inactive markets for genre fiction where an aspiring writer can sell or publish their work. The site is exhaustive and free!
