Well, here we go again. It's another year, another April, which means one thing:
another A to Z Challenge!
What is it you ask?
"The brainchild of Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, the A to Z Challenge is posting every day in April except Sundays (we get those off for good behavior.) And since there are 26 days, that matches the 26 letters of the alphabet. On April 1, blog about something that begins with the letter “A.” April 2 is “B,” April 3 is “C,” and so on. You can use a theme for the month or go random – just as long as it matches the letter of the alphabet for the day."
So for the entire month of April, I will be focusing on a specific topic of information to share with you ... about writing! (surprise, surprise, surprise!)
So … you want to be a writer? Where do you start? How do you get there? No worries. This month I’ll be sharing my A to Z list of writer’s resources: books, blogs, and beyond! Check back each day to find helpful resources for improving your writing and navigating your way through the publishing industry.
The letter A is for AGENTS
If you're pursuing the traditional path of publishing, you may be looking for an agent, but do you want just any agent? How do you know that he or she will be reliable, honest, and ethical?
Association of Authors’ Representatives http://www.aaronline.org/
The AAR is a professional organization of hundreds of agents that work with book authors and playwrights. They hold their members to the highest standards of ethics. The website offers a wealth of information and insight into the industry.
I'll see YOU back here tomorrow for the letter B.
In the meantime, are you participating in the A to Z Challenge? If so, do you have a theme for your posts this month?
