Christian Writers' Market Guide 2008 by Sally Stuart

Christian Writers' Market Guide 2008
WaterBrook Press (January 15, 2008)
by Sally Stuart

This is the fourth year I have used Sally's Christian Writers' Market Guide. This book is the best resource for all things related to Christian writing. In addition to detailed listings of Christian publishers and periodicals, Sally includes a tremendous list of resources for writers providing great books, tips, references, websites, tax information, legal concerns, and more.

In an on-line forum, Sally shared with members how she uses this book. She actually tears it apart and puts it into a three ring binder with tabs. I have to say that I was very hesitant to rip out pages -- it is a book, afterall, and we've been taught to treat them with reverence! But after I got past that fear, I was amazed at how much more useful this made the book for me. I can keep it open to a particular page without having to lay another book on top of it, and I can quickly find anything I need.

If you want to do any writing in the Christian world, this is a must have book!
