In every industry there is always a gold book.  While the publishing industry continues to change dramatically with the introduction of e-readers, online services and the disappearance of beloved book stores; writers still need a reliable source to introduce themselves.  This guide offers a free online subscription service for 1 year, tips on crafting an excellent query letter and other useful information, agencies are presented in alpha order with a helpful speciality index in the back of the book.  I made contact during the summer of 2010 with an agency in NY using this guide so I know this is a dependable source.  LA Carlson
