Doing your research is one of the most important parts of the publishing process. Not only is it (almost) completely within your control, but there is a direct link between research and success.

Here are our favorite resources:

Preditors & Editors–see what others have to say about whether an agent, or press, is legit

The Absolute Write Water Cooler–a forum site with a supportive community of writers

The Guide to Literary Agents–interviews with agents on a blog run by Writer’s Digest

Publishers Marketplace–look for the deals by each potential match
