This is a list of all the literary/book people lists I've found on Google+ so far. I'll keep it updated, so feel free to bookmark. If you know of any others, please do post the URLs below. Don't forget, you can also enter search terms like "writer" in the Find People box at the top of G+ windows as well as services like http://www.findpeopleonplus.com/.
For my lists (incl. non-lit) lists, please see my About Profile. Please DON'T ask me to add you to a list -- all the lists mentioned below are "add yourself" directories. Just click through to the list you're interested in & follow the instructions. To see my other Google+ Directories, please see my About Profile.
Here are the lists organized by category:

+Dan Dollar That's a great idea! I'm a screenwriter and updating this writers lists, yet that is one list we're missing. * blushes * It is hard to search for these lists on Google+, that's why Debbie is doing a great job with this directory. If you start a screenwriters list, can you send me a link? I'll add it to my writers lists. And if you're not, please let me know, then I'll start one myself.
+Dan Dollar Share a new post, asking screenwriters to introduce themselves. Their comments is basically the screenwriters list. Make sure you add the permalink of your thread into your post, so when people share your post to others, they know where to find your list. Debbie's Kidlit/YA list is a great example: https://plus.google.com/115121110877145330939/posts/QQkAdWb8iz1 If you have more questions, send me a DM. I'm happy to help you with your list.
Great list of lists, Debbie. Thanks for compiling it. The permalink is a must for these kinds of lists. I find it frustrating that once a post has been reshared, there doesn't seem to be any kind of link back to the original post, which would be helpful when you want to +1 or comment on the original post, not the reshare. I hope that Google+ will add a link back at some point, but for now, the permalink is really helpful for finding the original post.
I've been busy working on a website inspired by the list collecting going on here. It's a total work in progress that I will be changing very frequently I'm sure but if anyone is interested in helping me work out the bugs please let me know. I'd like to get 4 or 5 people that are seriously interested in creating a place that will help everyone find all the creative google+ers.
I am so amazed by the awesomeness of this place. The collaboration, the support and the community are just wicked.
I will be posting a thread so as to not spam up this one.
+Shannon Brearley If you need any of my help, let me know. What kind of website? Only for writers? I'm also creating a list for filmmakers, because they ask me for one but beside the screenwriters list I can't find any other on G+.
Funny, I don't see very many of the 150+ authors I have in my Author circle in many of these lists. And many of them were first adopters and have the words "writer" or "author" in their taglines. Selective?
I'm having real difficulty with the extended posts like this one. But, I thought I'd throw this out there. I created this site to help organize and catalog. I'd love for people to submit links here. I will be trying to add to it over the next few weeks but I'm up against a work deadline that keeps getting sidetracked by this.
Use that link to submit the link, it goes live immediately and you can add categories if you can't find one that fits. I've got a few up there already including this one. I'm doing my best to credit all original posts and link to them so please let me know if you find an error. It doesn't matter who submits links btw, as long as you use the original link poster url.
Also, if you are a creative and want to be listed in the category sections then please feel free to use the SUBMIT PROFILE link.
I probably will miss posts here so please tag me directly if needed.
thanks, Debbie! Although I'm not a fiction writer, I'm non-fiction writer and an education & book blogger so these are helpful lists to me. But I really need to figure out what I'm doing on GooglePlus now.
