  1. Great list. I've used many of these. There was another agent blog I frequented while querying, but it's been a while and I can't remember her name. I know she got married so her name changed, too. If I think of it, I'll let you know.

  2. Good list! Poets and Writers (http://www.pw.org/grants) is a great resource for contests. I've recently found Authorsdb (http://authorsdb.com) and Author EMS (http://www.authorems.com) as well. So many sites, so little time!
