Just wanted to say thanks to all the St. Louis Writers Guild members at the meeting today. My compatriot Tricia Sanders and I spoke there this morning. They laughed at all my jokes - even the bad ones.
Here are links to some great networking websites we mentioned (and a few more for good measure):
Preditors and Editors - Reviews of publishers and writing-related businesses
Absolutewrite.com - Writers' online community
Therenegadewriter.com - freelance writing advice from much published writers
The Renegade Writer Wiki - the inside info on magazines provided by freelance writers
Shrinking Violet Promotions - book marketing for introverts
The Writer Mama - Christina Katz blog for writing mothers
Critique Circle - Critique group online
Pubrants - Lit agent Kristin Nelson
Bookends, LLC - Literary agency

Fangs, Fur, and Fey - blog for published urban fantasy/paranormal authors

Hope to see you all at the Missouri Writers Guild Conference. Stalk those agents and editors online, people!
