I only just discovered this reference book existed so haven’t had a chance to thoroughly explore the resources it lists. Despite the short time I’ve had to look through the book, I have found in skimming it that not only does it have a huge listing of various resources categorized by purpose for writers, there are even a few resources listed for freelancers and proofreaders/editors (as in editing a piece of writing). There are likely other areas related to publishing and writing that could find useful materials in this guide as well that I have yet to discover. I look forward to digging into these materials deeper as the year progresses.
