Reviews - What do our customers think?
Getting gyped by a Christian? Why am I not suprised.  Mar 13, 2008
I am a Christian, and am trying to get published, and bought this simultaneous with the secular 2007 Writer's Market (back in Fall of 2007) which is outstanding. One has to expect new small publishers to go out of business, but I believe I discovered too many way-out-of-date references in the "Christian Writers' Market", publishers that had been out of business longer than 9 months. Does Sally E. Stuart work for a living or does she just keep redistribuing the same tired old volume with a new date on it?
The Essential Guide  Feb 11, 2008
A book that survives and thrives through 22 editions is a successful and valuable product. This is certainly true of Sally Stuart's "Christian Writers' Market Guide 2007."

As her sub-title suggests, this work is the reference tool for the Christian writer. Such a claim is not the stuff of info-mercials; it is reality. As The Midwest Book Review extols: "An essential reference for anyone seeking to be published in the Christian community."

The 2007 Edition is completely updated and revised, now with even more markets for Christian writers, periodicals, publishers, e-book publishers, agents, and so much more. Stuart's tireless and meticulous research saves the aspiring and experienced Christian writer thousands of hours of personal research (time better spent writing and marketing).

If you want to keep abreast of trends and stay informed on contacts in the Christian publishing arena, then the "Christian Writers' Market Guide 2007" remains the best in the business. I purchase a new copy each year.

Reviewer: Dr. Bob Kellemen is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spirtual Direction," "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction" and "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
Great Resource  Jun 7, 2007
This is a very thorough resource and I would recommend it to any aspiring writer. Get to know the terms, abbreviations, and layout to make the most of this guide.
...a just-the-facts-ma'am reference book every writer needs to add to his or her bookshelf.  May 8, 2007
If it wasn't sacrilegious, the Christian Writers' Market Guide could be called the Bible of Christian publishing. Instead, it's self-tagged "The Essential Reference Tool for the Christian Writer". Listing 354 book publishers and 740 periodicals (not to mention 120 literary agents), that's an apt description. Each listing provides everything you need to know including website addresses, word count preferences, how to request guidelines, tips on submitting, average first printing (for book publishers), circulation (for magazines), and much more.

The Guide's format hasn't changed a whole lot over the years (I keep waiting for an update to the old fashioned typeface). But as the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. And the Christian Writer's Market Guide is certainly not broke. It's a no-nonsense, just-the-facts-ma'am reference book every writer needs to add to his or her bookshelf.

Always informative is Sally Stuart's "state of the industry" introduction. This year she talks about how twenty years ago, when she first started the guide, each publisher had an address and phone number. Few had faxes, and of course none had e-mail. Now, a growing number of publishers don't even provide their mailing address since all correspondence is done electronically.

Several noteworthy additions to this year's Guide: The addition of an "Art---Freelance" category in the book topics section. Over 280 new entries in the 70 page "Resources for Writers" section. Entries in the book section now indicate what formats a publisher publishes (i.e. hardcover, trade paper, etc.) And a bonus CD-ROM with .pdf and Word files of the entire guide.

At first I questioned why the publishers would include a CD-ROM without putting the information into a spreadsheet format. But then two words came to mind: search ability. Even in a text document the wonderful "Ctrl F" function comes to the aid of writers every day. So in the Guide's case, if I'm searching for say, Christianity Today, a quick "find" brings me to the listing. And writers can also cut and paste individual listings into separate documents to print out later, eliminating the need to hand write all those potential publishers for your novel.

The only drawback to a guide like this is something completely out of the author's control. Editors change so fast in publishing that by the time the Guide comes out, countless entries are no longer accurate. As Sally says in her intro, "Even if you get this book each year, you need to keep up with any additions or changes that will affect the way you use it." In other words, verify everything before you submit--something a professional writer should do anyway. And while symbols are used at the beginning of each entry in the periodical section to indicate whether the market is new, unconfirmed, updated from a website, or a paying listing, I would love to see a symbol added indicating whether a publication accepts fiction (since so many do not).

The 2007 Christian Writer's Market Guide is a must-have resource for Christian writers. Even if an editor's name changes, most publishers and magazines are still around come release day, and reading about their needs and guidelines is an education from which all writers can benefit. Kudos to Sally Stuart for this excellent book.

Good Resource for Western Christian Writers  May 8, 2007
This is a great resource for protestant/evangelical writers, but was quite lacking in Eastern Orthodox publications and advice for Orthodox writers. Other than that, it's certainly a valuable resource for helping getting your books, articles, etc. published.
