A Recommendation for Writers

You know that website called Publishers Marketplace? You can get a lot of info at no charge there, including a free newsletter about the publishing industry, what book just sold by what agent to what editor for what price level.

I've generally ignored the $20 a month membership option for additional info there, thinking that one way or another I could find what I want for free. That may be true, but it takes a long time.

I just ponied up the $20 for a month and, goodness gracious, it was worth it. Want to know who's representing who and what the email is? I don't know of a faster way to get it. I was amazed. And membership is month by month, so you don't have to keep paying once your need is past.

Peggy, I've been using the paid version for years (off and on, as you said, since it's monthly) - I can't imagine querying without that resource.

I did it once before, but had forgotten had good it is. Also, I think they've added some features--or maybe the database is just larger. It feels like the Duke libraries do to me--oceanic.
