Format: Paperback
From Writer's Digest Books comes "Writer's Market Companion," which serves as a valuable supplement to their `writer's bible,' "Writer's Market."

In the volume's introduction, the authors explain their reasoning for a companion to the popular "Writer's Market" guide: "As the publishing industry changes, we have become more selective in choosing markets that appear in `Writer's Market.' As a result of these choices, we have to sacrifice essential content, the nuts and bolts of publishing...To fill this gap, we're providing you with this `Writer's Market Companion, 2nd ed.'"

In their "Writer's Market Companion," authors Joe Feiertag and Mary Carmen Cupito provide an overview of "the nuts and bolts of publishing": writing and selling different types of material, including poetry, short fiction, non-fiction articles and essays, book-length fiction and non-fiction, and even screenplays and scripts. They also discuss alternative markets for a freelancer's work, such as corporations, web sites, and eBook aficionados. Other topics covered include conducting research; executing interviews; promoting your work; pursuing grants, fellowships, and prizes; finding and evaluating writing groups and communities; treating your writing career seriously, like a "real" business; contractual and copyright issues; and pricing your work.

As compared to other manuals on writing, publishing, and promoting books and articles, "Writer's Market Companion" is easily one of the more superior ones I've read (and trust me, I've pored over quite a few!). The guide is well written (an essential when it's a book about writing!), informative without sounding dry or boring, and chock full of useful advice.
