Before babies, I always had a copy of Writer's Market on hand, the current year's edition. But that was almost a decade ago!

I published mostly poetry in literary magazines,and then some freelance articles here and there, and I still have a column in "Clay Times", a magazine for potters. Now I have an idea for a non-fiction, home-and-kids kind of how to-book. Where would I find a secular, granola-friendly publisher? Do any of you have recommendations or horror stories?

Do I go buy the Writer's Market again, or is it a whole new ballgame online?

You might need / want to have an agent for a non-fiction book length manuscript. Check out and :-)

I'll PM the link to a publisher I've worked with. Their site gives very specific guidelines for what they are looking for and how to submit.
