There are many good blogs out there that get overlooked, so occasionally I’m going to do a Shoutout highlighting one that I enjoy reading and believe will appeal to my readers. If there is a blog you think deserves a special mention, let me know and I will consider it for a future Shoutout.
To start this series of posts, I’m giving a well-deserved Shoutout to Lynn Price at Behler Publications. She is the editorial director there, and one of the nicest editors an aspiring writer could hope to work with. She maintains a blog that is full of helpful tips about writing, publishing, and promoting both nonfiction and fiction.
Though a small press, Behler Publications produces excellent books. I purchased one, a nonfiction book called Mommy, I’m Still in Here, and was pleased with the quality of the writing and editing. Their focus is on nonfiction, but they also consider fiction that is “socially relevant.” (You’re on your own figuring out what socially relevant means.) The blog has a complete list of the type of work Behler Publications considers, as well as advice on writing queries.
Even if you don’t have a project to submit, or yours isn’t in the category they publish, I think you’ll enjoy reading Lynn’s blog. She’s entertaining as well as helpful; just watch out for her beagle.
(A word of caution to my Inspirational Writer friends: the Behler blog does contain language some people may find offensive.)
