Recently, I've stumbled onto a delightful blog, one that offers insights into the life of a literary agent.

Miss Snark

Her blog is fun to read and yet offers much to learn.

Here's another blog, which is a very good tool for writers:

Writer Beware Blogs!

This blog is run by two ladies who have already saved lots and lots of writers from falling prey to dishonest agents and vanity publishers.

Check out their links and resouces, and you'll be much better prepared when looking for places to submit your work to.

Here's a third blog that I enjoy reading. It represents that part of publishing that most of us are still looking at with some trepidation: Print on Demand (aka Lulu etc.)

POD-dy Mouth

(Unfortunately, she doesn't read fantasy. emoticon )

POD-dy Mouth has been closed down. The site still exists, but the author has decided to give up on it, due to burn-out.

I can understand her, but it's still a big loss to the POD market.

And now Miss Snark is also closing down. She'll keep the blog online with comments disabled, and a search function, so you can still look up things there.

Even so, I'll miss her blog. I learned a lot from that site.
