Every Christian writer….

It’s Sally Stuart’s Christian Writers’ Market Guide for 2009.

Talk about a hard workin’ lady- “for 24 years running, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has remained the most comprehensive, complete, essential, and highly-recommended resource for beginning and veteran Christian writers, agents, editors, publishers, publicists, and those teaching writing classes.”

It includes-

* more than 1,200 markets for the written word
* 416 book publishers (32 new)
* 654 periodicals (52 new)
* 96 literary agents
* 100 new listings in Resources for Writers
* 226 poetry markets
* 316 photography markets
* 25 African-American markets
* and 166 contests (29 new)

So.  Being that I am, you know, trying to get published, and you know, trying to make a living at being a writer, the 2009 edition has already come in ridiculously handy.

You can purchase your own copy HERE.  And for realz, y’all.  I just looked at the price and that is WAY CHEAPER than I paid in 2006, 2007, and 2008.  Yes, I own them all.  Back off.

I get a lot of emails from y’all wanting to:

a) be a better writer
b) know how to get started being a writer
c) hear how Nashville is treatin’ me

And this book will TOTALLY help you with A and B.

As for C, I’m socially exhausted.  Dear musicians and crew, I love you.  I really do.  But please.  Do me a favor and go back out on the road.  You are SLAP WEARING ME OUT. [And I’m having a blast.]

So, my future writer friends, go buy the Market Guide- it is a GREAT first step to furthering your career, as well as a great tool for folks already in the industry.

Tomorrow I am moving to a house where there will be GASP no internet until Wednesday!!!  So I’ll try to blog and keep you updated (I mean, I gotta keep Frothy in biz-nass)- maybe a video and a few pics.  We’ll see.  🙂
