Or at least spending like one.
When I went to my last conference, an agent suggested to our class that we subscribe to www.PublishersMarketplace.com at the HOLY COW rate of $20.00 per month. Okay, maybe it’s not that expensive to you, but for me, it seems a little high. So I did it.
You can cancel at any moment, and it really does provide GREAT info. Here’s a blurb from their website:
Welcome to biggest and best dedicated marketplace for publishing professionals to find critical information and unique databases, find each other, and to do business better electronically. A service of Publishers Lunch, the most widely read daily dossier in publishing and known as “publishing’s essential daily read,” Publishers Marketplace really works in part because it is driven by the attention of over 40,000 publishing professionals who read Lunch every day.
I like to see the deals that are made daily, as well as what agents are the top sellers, etc. If you’re serious about making writing your life, sign up for a month and see what you think. I’m betting you’ll be inspired!
