Traditional publishing: Writing queries and where to send them to

I compiled this data as part of a recent AMA on Publishing Paths at reddit but thought it might be helpful to the community at large so I broke it out.

Resources for Writing Query Letters

Resources for Book Publishers for Direct Sumbission

Resources for Finding Agents

Annual Directories of Agents and Publishers
  • 201x Writer's Market Deluxe Edition
  • 201x Guide to Literary Agents
  • Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, and Literary Agents 201x
This is great information! Thank you so much for posting. I certainly will look into these. I want to traditionally publish, and haven't the foggiest of how to go about doing it.

Thanks for compiling all this in one place. I see that the Query Shark is still taking and answering questions. Do you think the information in the older articles about query letters still apply today?
