Websites Part Two

I promised you some more websites that I found in the latest issue of Writers Digest, so here they are.

Duotrope's Digest:   http://www.duotrope.com/
There are over 2,000 markets at this site for fiction writers and poets.

Absolute Write:  http://www.absolutewrite.com/
A forum for freelancers, novelists, bloggers and more.

Autonomy:  http://www.authonomy.com/
This site was developed by the book editors at Harper Collins, and it allows you to upload your manuscript for free and have others look at it.  HarperCollins editors read the most popular manuscripts and have even signed a few for publication. 

Backspace: http://www.bksp.org/
This site features articles, columns and news from indudtry insiders.  You have to pay a small annual fee for access to the forum, but it hosts literary agents, editors and authors, and it could be worth the money, as 47 of the original 110 have been publshed.

Author Tech Tips:  http://www.authortechtips.com/
This site breaks down everything in social networking, blogging, and podcasting into basic explanations and advice for everyone who is a non-techie. ( Like me.)

Mystery Writing Is Murder:  http://www.mysterywritingismurder.blogspot.com/
This mystery-writing mom talks about good guys, bad guys, plot twists and more.

WOW! Women on Writing:  http://www.wow-womenonwriting.com/
This is a great site about women writers supporting other women writers throughout the whole writing process.

Well, that's it for web sites.  There are a lot more in the May/June issue of Writers Digest, but you will have to buy the magazine or take a subscription to see them all.  It's worth it!

This will be my last post for awhile.  I'm having surgery tomorrow and will have my right shoulder/arm in a cast/sling for 4 weeks...if I'm lucky, only 4 weeks.  So I apologize for being gone for about a month, but typing with only one hand is definitely for the birds.

Be good and play nice.  See you later.
