One thing I love about writing is that I'm always learning new information. Not just research about water recycling systems or how aquaponics works to feed the characters in my underground city.
Every day I learn something new about the publishing industry. And today I'm sharing what I've learned this week with other writers.
Manuscript Wish List is a website where agents and publishers list what they're looking for right now. This is like the best thing I've discovered for a while.
You can access it here http://mswishlist.com/
It's easy to use, select whether you're looking for genres or publishers or agents. There you'll find requests for manuscripts such as YA, MG, sci-fi, romance. It's a great resource to fast track the blanket query process.
