    Question [Publicity / Display site] International Association of Writers

    For US$149, you can:

    1. participate in their members-only International Speakers' Bureau
    2. promote yourself in the members-only Database of Experts for the Media
    3. have your articles and columns syndicated in the - you guessed it - members-only Articles Directory
    4. receive a free listing in their freelance marketplace
    5. but most of all, you can list your queries and manuscripts for eager agents, editors, and publishers.
    I've searched through B&BC, but it seems the site's fairly new; according to the "join us" page, they launch in two weeks. I also checked on the director's name, Fern Reiss, and didn't come up with much.

    I'm hearing some tiny little bells going off with this one. Thoughts?
    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    Maybe it's just me, but when I see bullet points about "secrets" I "must know" and "reports" I'm left feeling cold.

    I'd certainly wait and see.

    Fern Reiss is a self-anointed publishing expert and author of The Publishing Game series (Publish a Book in 30 Days, etc.). She claims 10 books on her website, but Amazon shows six, most pubbed by her own PBJ Press.

    Some discussion of her in this thread.

    The bulk of the site gives server errors, and the most recent newsletter I can pull up is Dec '09.
