A FREE-use, updated version of Gary Kessler and Carol Kluz’s Finding Go! Matching Questions and Resources in Getting Published (Winterwolf, 2004), providing discussion and resource links for some 175 basic questions about writing for publication and getting published. In addition, separate articles by the authors on writing and publishing can be found at "Articles."
Finding Go! is a practical, no-nonsense resource that provides basic explanations, definitions, print resources, and Internet links to updated information for writers seeking publication of their works. The information on this Web site stems directly from some 175 actual basic, frequently asked questions on writers’ Web site discussion boards about:
- how to write and format manuscripts for submission for publication
- where and how to submit manuscripts to agents and publishers
- when and how to self-publish
- what should be in a fair agenting or publishing contract
- what to expect in the publication process, and
- how to network with others in publishing.
Included are a concise overview of the process (the "Short Course" button), an extensive, annotated list of book genres and categories ("Genres"), and a detailed glossary of common publishing-world terms ("Glossary"). This is a gateway resource that will shortcut and accelerate your journey to a working knowledge of the ins and outs of getting published.
"There are a million questions every writer has when he or she is starting out. This book has harvested some of the most important and offers up clear, realistic and objective answers. If more writers starting out read this book, there would be a lot less confusion and disappointment for them." - M. J. Rose, Author and book-marketing guru
"Finding Go! not only points writers in the right direction, it includes essential knowledge as well." - David L. Kuzminski, Author and Preditors & Editors editor
