Back in 2004 I ordered this book and was sent the 1998 edition. The response to my complaint was basically too bad so sad. I have decided never to order any books from amazon again.
The writer's bible dated 2004 A.D. has arrived! Most writers won't wonder what book I'm speaking of since it's THE BOOK.
The first 100 pages or so contain articles and advice while the rest is markets, markets, markets. These articles include agents, pricing, interviews, building a career, and queries. Writers have been complaining about one critical item that's missing from the 2003 edition. It's back. Yes, the "How much I should charge?" article is here to rescue writers (me included) who struggle with pricing. The article has seven pages worth of gold with going market rates sorted by categories. Scan these 100 pages as soon as the book arrives in your hands to put the advice to immediate use.
Copyright issues make me crazy. "The Business of Writing" defines terms relating to rights and provides a brief overview of selling subsidiary rights and contracts and agreements. It's a painless five to ten minutes read. Online markets have pounded writers with more confusion over rights and rates. "Strategies for Negotiating Electronic Rights and Rates," untangles the web.
If you own an older version of the book, this one is still worth the purchase. It has 1,100 new listings and contacts change often with people moving around within the industry and to new locations.
For those who have never seen or heard of this book, read the first article in the book, which takes you on a tour of what's in it and how to use it. The markets cover 300+ agents, book publishers, magazines, journals, scriptwriting, contests and awards, and resources making this a valuable paperweight or doorstopper. Inside of the front and back covers is a key to the symbols and abbreviation to help you make heads and tails of each entry.
Each listing comes with contact information, pay rates, statistics, tips on how to deal with the resource, and details on the publisher's needs. The agents sections provides terms, recent sales, representation type (subjects, fiction, etc.), and member agents.
We get too busy to read books. This is not a book you need to make time to read. When you come up with a brilliant article or manuscript, search the book for possible publishers to pursue. It's a heck of a lot faster than researching online or at the library.
This baby with over 1,000 pages pays for itself with one cheap article. Even if you find just one or two markets from the book, it's worth the investment.
doesnt Do You
Are you looking for someone to publish your book, article, poetry, or someone to consider your play or movie script? Are you looking for an agent? If so, you need this valuable tool. The cover pretty well sums it up: 8,000 book and magazine editors to buy what you write. The book includes contacts for over 300 agents, plus 700 contests and awards. Most entries list what the publisher is looking for, how much they will pay for your work, and what rights they want to purchase. It goes into detail about when the publisher was established in the business, and either their mailing address, email address, or phone numbers. This book gives you access to the "Big Boys" such as Reader's Digest, Cosmopolitan, MS, The Atlantic Monthly, and Parade. Categories for magazines include: General Interest, Gay & Lesbian, Women's, Sports, Juvenille, Child Care, Regional, Literary, Home & Garden, Animal, Automotive, Comic Books, Health & Fitness, Hobby & Craft, Nature, Teen, Religious, Trade Magazines, Travel, Science and Sex. Book categories include: Adventure, Comic Books, Confession, Ethnic, Erotica, Fantasy, Religion, Gothic, Horror, Literary, Juvenille, Plays, and Biography. There are many more categories in both magazines and books, but too many to list. The Writer's Market also contains priceless tips on how to get published, how to estimate word count, manuscript format, mailing submissions, query letters, and much more. I have purchased the book myself since 1993, and I have been published ... and PAID FOR IT!!!!!!!! Please let me stress this, If you want to write, but don't feel you have what it takes, heck, try it and see. You never know until you try. I studied writing under a published author, and she told the class that any given article etc. gets an average of 70 rejections, so if this is your first try and you get a rejection, don't give up! I would also recommend the Literary Marketplace. It too is a superb manual for writer's. The 2004 Writer's Market has over 1100 pages, plus gives you info on finding other writing books of key interest. If you have written, are writing, or want to write a book, article, poem, play, tv or movie script, this book can be a tremendous help. Order yours today!!!
