For US$149, you can: (http://www.associationofwriters.com/]International Association of Writers[/url]


participate in their members-only International Speakers' Bureau
promote yourself in the members-only Database of Experts for the Media
have your articles and columns syndicated in the - you guessed it - members-only Articles Directory
receive a free listing in their freelance marketplace
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?

Fixing the URL (http://www.associationofwriters.com/index.php).

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 (http://www.publishinggame.com/index.htm) 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 (http://tinyurl.com/5pr7el) shows six, most pubbed by her own PBJ Press.

Some discussion of her in this thread (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20810).

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