The 2008 edition of Writer’s Market is out. Somehow, though, I think I might just stick with my 2007 edition another year. For the majority of the publications listed, there haven’t been absolutely huge changes. And for those markets with regular editorial turnover, changes in guidelines and other details in need of updating, well, I try to make a point of checking a website before I submit a query, anyhow.
Don’t get me wrong — I get a lot of use out of my copy of Writer’s Market. I just don’t need a new one every year. But I’ll tell you what I am considering for the 2008 work year: an online membership. The online database is very nice, and you get to see the most recent information available. All in all, a good deal, I think.
