As we often hear--"All good things must come to an end." And so it is with my work with the Christian Writers' Market Guide. Today I'm announcing that the market guide has been sold to Jerry Jenkins and the Christian Writers Guild. I could not be happier with this transition. Their involvement with writers and commitment to training writers for the Kingdom makes them the perfect match to carry the work of the guide forward. However, it is with no little regret that I end my 26+ years involvement with the guide. The guild will pick up the work starting with the 2012 edition.
For me, this just marks semi-retirement. I will continue to speak at conferences, evaluate book contracts and book proposals, and sell the 2011 market guides and other resources from my Website. I have also given up my "Write Market" column in the Christian Communicator, but will continue the column in The Advanced Christian Writer. Michael Ehret of the Christian Writers Guild will pick up the "Write Market" column beginning with the June issue.
I will continue my blog for now and look forward to an ongoing relationshiop with writers--my favorite people. Thanks to all who have supported me so faithfully over all the years of doing the guide.
