This week we're focusing on the latest edition of Sally Stuart's Christian Writers' Market Guide. This was the first time I have sat down and flipped through a copy of the guide, and I have to tell you it is a goldmine. If you want to become a writer in the Christian market, then you need this book. Here's more.
For more than twenty years, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has offered indispensable help to Christian writers. This year, for the first time, this valuable resource comes with a CD-ROM of the full text, so you can search with ease for topics, publishers, and other specific names.
