Christian Writer's Market Guide 2009 Oct 12, 2009
I get one every year. Only a fool would try to send out manuscripts without this information!

I would recommend Sally E. Stuart's book titled Christian Writers' Market Guide 2009: The Essential Reference Tool for the Christian Writer for anyone who is pursuing being published. I was fortunate enough to receive a copy in a special pre-release. [...]
Paul once instructed his young friend and disciple to "Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15). One of my growing passions is to be the best communicator that I can be (whether that be in preaching, teaching, or writing). I understand that the fulfillment of my personal mission of engaging seekers, enabling followers, entrusting ministers, and encouraging leaders will hinge greatly on my ability to communicate both doctrine and direction. Who knows if a part of my journey will one day include being published? I am not the first person with the desire to see his thoughts be put in print. I do know that I will stay devoted to the value of life-long learning. Even this week, thanks in large part to the local church in which I am the youth pastor, I was able to begin a masters program in ministerial leadership. My hope is to better articulate my dream to one day design and develop a way to transition a church from being programmatic to becoming intentional. From being attractional to becoming missional. From being complex to becoming simple - a body of believers committed to connecting people to the love of Christ, the life of the church, and the need of the world. Only time will tell where my studies will take me.

Christian Writers' Market Guide 2009I have found this book to be intelligently organized, though, it is somewhat different in this from the "Writer's Market." While I have yet to be published the Christian Writers' Market Guide (CW) is essential for me to attain my goal of having my own novel published. I am thankful for the author who has put together this marvelous resource.

The book is very helpful with a lot of information. I was surprised at all the typo errors in it though. You'd think that being a book about getting published that it would be a good example of published work. Suggestion for next year = hire and editor!
