I've started to compile a list that may be helpful to my fellow BookTown residents. This list will be able to help them with their publishing needs. I've split up the links by genre and the links that I'm looking for is, writing associations, publishers, and blogs.

If the publisher doesn't have a submissions criteria listed on their website, I don't list it. And if it's a self-publishing service I don't list it.
