Can’t Get Enough Valentines? Write a Romance Novel!

If the reality of Valentine’s Day left you feeling unfulfilled, why not write it the way you wish it’d happened? And if you’re going to do write a romance novel, you might as well learn from the pros.

Without further ado, here’s the link to Harlequin’s Writing Guidlines

Really, this website makes it so easy for aspiring writers that the Writer’s Market should be contemplating it’s relevancy. eHarlequin even offers a manuscript critique service for those writers who have more money than talent (not that that’s a bad thing).

Come to think of it, maybe I’d be better served to abadon my literary novel and write a few juicy bodice-rippers. Something tell’s me it’d be more profitable.


Writer’s Market Online Update

I just got this mass email from Writer’s Market. Seems they are aware of the problemo and trying to fix it.

As you’re aware if you’ve visited the site recently, there are some glitches with the search and submission tracker. However, our programmers feel most of these issues may be fixed as early as today. In the meantime, I encourage you to use the community area of the site, check out the Market Watch updates, and perform more general searches.
Until next we meet, keep writing and marketing what you write.

The Trials and Tribulations of Writer’s Market Online

Everybody’s been telling me to ditch the paper and glue Writer’s Market and sign up for the oh-so-superior online version. So I got the one month trial version, which is incidentally the same price as my Netflix subscription.

One of these two brings me great joy.

The other … heartache.

Can you guess which one?

It’s the Writer’s Market. If you know what I’m doing wrong, please please please tell me. Everytime I do a search, I either get an error message or or a “sorry not found” message. According to them, there are no publications that deal with “food.” Food! Clearly, there is a bug in the system. Is it an end user problem? Or is it them? Also, their site is super super slow. That can’t be my fault, right?

This is a cry for help. If any of you know how to make Writer’s Market online work, please let me know.
