“Here’s a paradox: Editors expect writers to read the last six issues of their magazine before querying – but what magazine writer can afford back issues of every publication she’s targeting?”~~The Renegade Writer by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell

OK, so I cheated. This is actually on page 57. Page 56 only has one line. But the Renegade books by Formichelli and Burrell deserve to be read, re-read and shared. So give me a break since this snippet is located next to page 56.

“We’re curmudgeons –we always click No, it’s not okay.” ~~The Renegade Writer’s Query Letters that Rock by Linda Formichelli and Dianna Burrell

Query Letters that Rock changed my writing career. I used to follow a fomula and sure, I sold articles, but after reading this book, I joined the renegade club and my sales have increased. If you’re a serious writer, you must check out this writing bible. Not only does it offer great advice, but the humor keeps me rolling when I read it.
