There is a plethora of information available out there, and more than one route to publication. You can research details online by Googling “getting published”, or look to one of many current “How to get published” books on the market.

If your manuscript is finished and polished to a high shine, there are several avenues for you to consider for publishing your work:

  • Send a query to an agent asking him or her to represent you and sell your book to a publisher.
  • Send a query to the editor of a publishing house.
  • Build your credentials by getting published in literary magazines.

If you are sending queries, always do your research and carefully follow the specific
agent’s or publisher’s submission guidelines.
