WMBTSD Giveaway: Thanks to our generous sponsors!

Please join me in saying thanks, this morning, to all of our generous sponsors, who jumped at the opportunity to participate in this giveaway at their own expense. Readers never see how hard authors (and editors) work, not just to create an informative and enjoyable book, but to usher that book out into the world so it can participate in opportunities like this one.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to have won these books. I’m at a point where I need all the encouragement I can get to jump back into submitting my work. What could be better than books on query letters and book proposals? Many thanks to the contributors of ALL of these excellent resources!
