Sunday Places--Cautionary and a Contest

Two great sites to check for scams, bad contests (only looking for the fee money) and really bad agents (remember anyone can say, "I'm an agent")  are Preditors and Editors and Absolute Write. Both contain a wealth of info about legitimate agents, contests and markets as well.

And here's a blog contest with oodles of great prizes that's easy to enter (but hurry, ends Monday): Author Michelle McLean. In general, Michelle's blogs are chockablock full of info too!

You're welcome, Aubrie!

Wise advice from a woman of wisdom and wit.
I hadn't realized I could research contests as wells as agents and publishers. Will do from now on.

I'm with Kathy. I didn't know P&E included contests. Thanks for the links

Thanks for the heads up, I've been busy at work and neglecting blogging for a bit. Good that the weekend finally arrives.

Thanks for the research. It's always good to be warned about potential ripoffs!

Happy trails
