I really like this podcast.
This is an episode with a number of guests about the Craft Industry Alliance. It's interesting that they included issues of copyright/notice and take down in their intro (that its good to have lawyers as part of the craft industry alliance). http://craftindustryalliance.org/
Now, they are talking to a literary agent for crafters, Kate McKean, a Craft Industry Alliance member. Really interesting. She has sold over 40 craft books in her career. She accepts book proposals. What is your market? One element that is key to a book proposal. She also has an MFA in fiction writing.
The Craft Industry Alliance journal looks really interesting: http://craftindustryalliance.org/journal/.
They have Q and A sessions with lawyers too.
