Market News and Writing Guides

Market News

Only four days left to submit a completed speculative fiction novel to Harper Voyager. You can find more information on the Harper Voyager website.

Maybe you can’t submit to Harper Voyager. Maybe you don’t have a completed manuscript, or write in another genre, or have some short stories or nonfiction articles you’re dying to get out there. Have I got a resource for you? You bet!

Cindi Myers uses her WordPress blog to generously provide writers with market news. Although she is primarily a romance writer, she posts opportunities for all kinds of genres. Whether you write fiction, nonfiction, horror, Christian, poetry, literary, etc., you’ll probably find something relevant to your style of writing.

You can find her blog here: Cindi Myers Market News’s Blog  If you’re on WordPress, you’ll want to hit the “follow” button.

If you’re working on a novel or working up to a novel, and need a little help and inspiration, I found a couple of freebie writing guides that look promising. As always, you don’t need a Kindle to download these babies. The Kindle app is available for computers, tablets and smart phones.

  Screenwriting Tricks For Authors by Alexandra Sokoloff
Are you finally committed to writing that novel but have no idea how to get started? Or are you a published author – but know you need some plotting help to move your books and career up to that next level? Screenwriting is a compressed and dynamic storytelling form and the techniques of screenwriting are easily adaptable to novel writing. You can jump-start your plot and bring your characters and scenes vibrantly alive on the page – by watching your favorite movies and learning from the storytelling tricks of great filmmakers.

  Writing Your Way: The Great American Novel Track by Julie Smith
WRITING YOUR WAY is all about finding your own best writing method, not a writing teacher’s idea of what’s right for you. It’s for the pre-published novelist who’s way past finding her inner writer and just wants some nuts-and-bolts advice that’ll help her through the plot knots and POV power struggles.
