Christian Writers Market Guide 2008 Dec 11, 2009
This is a reference book full of useful valuable information. It is not a book you will read and give away. Rather it will be kept and referred to continually especially for the first time writter.
Would not buy again. Jan 5, 2009
Though I think that this is probably the only reference of publishers in the Christian industry I would not recommend it for those who actually want to make a living at publishing. Instead I'd suggest the Writers Market. 2009 Writer's MarketThis Christian writers market has very few listings that pay money for articles or submissions. This is sad. Just because you are writing for a Christian publication does not mean that you should not be paid for your work. I suppose if you want to get your foot in the door, or write for free it is a good resource. However, I'd rather take my chance writing inspirational items for other markets that pay. I must also add that I have been disappointed with some of the online markets that this book sends me to. They don't seem professional at all, and in my experience have not been long lasting. It is a resource to have on my shelf, but I am not sure I would buy it again.
Very Helpful*I use it a lot Nov 4, 2008
The Christmas Edition Being an author, I am always looking for new markets and want to be kept up on narrowing markets. This book really helps me. Its easy to use...I take notes in the margins. Its a great reference book.The Valentine Edition
excellent not perfect Jul 11, 2008
. This is the guidebook to have, if you are interested in the Christian publication market. . The main categories of interest are publishers, agents, and periodicals. Trying to pull these out of a general guide like WM or WH would take a lot more work. The agents list is buried under "Helps" and should be given a separate entry at the main indexing level. . The resources are excellent. The other guidebooks should copy this approach. On the other hand, there is no "how to" or introductory writing information. That is good. It is available elsewhere and should not be duplicated especially in a useless watered down format as other guides do. . Vanity press publishers are separated from traditional publishers. . There is a very useful market analysis that tells the sub-genre/topic of books that are most published. Also the publishers are listed by size wrt the number of books they publish. . There are entries for greeting cards and specialty markets such as software and games. . There is a helps section that lists conferences, clubs, services and contests. . The usual glossary and index are at the back. . As with any similar guide, there are some E&Os. With the constant changes in the publishing industry always check the information and the current editors name before submitting a mss. . With the CDRom, this book is worth buying if your writing is aimed at this marketplace. I would refer to WM or WH at the library. The online adjuncts to other guides have not proven useful in the past. but this CDRom makes the book worth owning. ...
The book for all who want ALL the details Jul 4, 2008
I read some of the other reviews, and I think that you need to understand that Sally Stuart left out nothing!! Yes, she even listed the vanity publishers. You should never use a vanity publisher, but if you read each description, you can easily see that they are what they are. I am very happy that Sally list ALL the publishers, editors, etc. I would rather have them all in one book than finding out about one that isn't in the book that rips me off. Thank you Sally for not forgetting one reference!!!
This book is a must read for all Christian writers.
