You can listen to this episode here.


Have you ever been frustrated while looking for an agent or editor? In today’s episode, I talk about where to find good editors and agents using the Christian Writers Market Guide. 

Why are agents and editors so hard to find for many authors? It’s because many authors:

  • don’t know where to start.
  • don’t know who to call.
  • don’t know who to trust. 

The cool thing about the market guide is that it not only gives you the contact info for agents and editors, it also gives you tips on how to successfully pitch them. These tips are often written by the agents themselves. 

I don’t want to bury the lead here, the online version of the market guide is now only $9.99 a year. It used to be $5.99 a month.

  • Over $500 worth of coupons for author training. 
  • New listings of educational resources including podcasts.
