RWA is already worth the 120 dollars I paid this morning. I cannot wait until I can use some of the information they provide.They give you a very thorough list of Agents who are accepting queries etc... and how to contact them. That's the info that's popping out the most to me. I'm not going to try sending in my manuscript to a publishing house without an agent... at least, not yet. Besides, most publishing houses don't accept unsolicited work- I know for a fact that the two publishing houses I'd like to publish with don't. So there's my reasoning. Plus, I'd much rather have an agent to represent me and do some of the tricky business stuff.
The July RWR edition was so interesting and I only glanced at it! It answered some of the remaining questions I had... including the whole website thing. Yay!
So tonight I believe I'm going to head into the city to buy Delilah Marvelle's second book Lord of Pleasure, and hopefully buy a few copies of her first book Mistress of Pleasure to send to her. Apparently Mistress is impossible to find anywhere in the USA.
Ah well, but I have a few hours yet before I go, so I'm going to keep writing.
