Georgia publishers

I’ll be serving as one of the manuscript evaluators at the Harriette Austin Writers Conference in Athens, Georgia, on Saturday, July 23, 2011. I live in Athens, Ohio, so it’ll be interesting to visit a Southern city also called Athens.

It seemed like a good idea to take along a list of publishers in Georgia, so I might discuss them with conference attendees. Then, I realized that posting the list online was smarter. I don’t categorize publishers by their locations, so looking at this group gives me a fresh perspective of my weekend destination.

    Wolfmont LLC is the parent company. Wolfmont Press is one of its imprints. The company also offers creative and marketing services tailored to its clients’ needs, under the name Wolf Mountain Creative. The Wolfmont LLC link will take you directly to the information about all of the company’s businesses, but unfortunately there was no direct link to the custom publishing arm. Maybe it’s a new endeavor that was launched after your stories were published. Many publishers, large and small, have been branching out into custom publishing, which can be a profitable sideline.

    Wolfmont–yes, Tony is a great guy! Does good work and seems to be reliable. I’ve had some dealings with him over the years and he’s the real deal.

    Oh, and by the way, Robin, I’ve got a new blog address I’m leaving for you–since the old one is now inactive.

    Have fun in Georgia. I’m jealous–my daughter and family live near there.

    Hey. My name is Alissa Woodring. I am sixteen years old and I have been writing my own books for about three years. I started writing after I read the Twilight series, way after the first movie came out. I was obsessed with Vampires and ended up writing a vampire, which later I read and asked myself why I hadn’t thrown it away. The more I read the more supernatural books I wrote. I have just finished the a five book series and I want nothing more to publish it after I revise it. I have been looking everywhere for publisher and editors and I would like some advice/help on where I should start my career as an author.

    As a mother, I’m biased regarding career advice for a sixteen-year-old, so bear that in mind.

    First, get your high school diploma. Second, go to college. While you’re completing your education, you’ll learn research skills and have plenty of opportunities to conduct research into a career as a novelist. You’ll also meet authors who can tell you of their experiences getting published, all of which will be unique.

    After you’ve finished writing the first book in your series, you’ll want to find a reliable, frank critique partner or critique group. Until you’ve obtained critical feedback on your writing and then revised your manuscript several more times, it won’t be ready to show to a literary agent or a traditional publisher.

    Meanwhile, as a jumping-off point in your process of learning all you can about book publishing, take a look at Jane Friedman’s infographic showing the 4 Key Book Publishing Paths. You’ll find a lot of excellent information on Jane’s blog. You also can read the resources listed on my website. Your local library will have some excellent books on the topic, and the librarians will be happy to help you find and borrow them to conduct your research.

    Good luck!
