4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but be careful!, February 14, 2007

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2007 Novel & Short Story Writer's Market (Paperback)
I purchased the 2006 edition of this book and have used it extensively. I have only sent out a dozen or so queries so far, but have been encouraged that most of the agents and publishers have responded, even if the response is not what I would like to hear yet. A couple of cautions however, first, verify addresses on the web whenever possible. I sent out a couple of packages to publishers who were no longer at the address listed and left no forwarding address. Second, even though this guide is considered beneficial, sometimes scammers get through the system. I had my book accepted by a publisher only to find out that they weren't what they claimed. The pubisher is PublishAmerica and is apparently in the business of making money off of authors and not the public. Fortunately, because there is so much dishonesty everywhere nowadays, I did a Google search about this publisher only to find they had many disgruntled author/clients who were stuck in long contracts they couldn't get out of. I highly suggest that if you recieve an acceptance letter from anyone in this book, you check the agent or publisher out on the web before signing anything. You will save yourself a lot of heartache!
