A Must Read: Writer Beware Blogs!

Now in it’s 14th year, Writer Beware is an excellent professional/educational resource that every writer who submits work should read. Writer Beware is “a publishing industry watchdog group sponsored by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America with additional support from the Mystery Writers of America, shining a bright light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes, and pitfalls.”

Here’s a list of Writer Beware’s most notable posts and warnings from 2011:
