It seems the go-ahead is on the side of the operatives, and I concur. If you are not accidentally acquainted with someone from the publisher's community, you can only select the publishers' name from a list when looking for a home for your novel.
One frahling will have contact, many of them, and you will know which of these contact will be the best if you are looking for a publisher for your particular novel. Moreover, the assigned publisher's editors, for whom the agents choose, will take the entry much more seriously than an unasked entry by an intruder.
Though finding an agency is not much simpler (if any) than finding a publisher directly, agencies are good guys to have on your side when it comes to the commercial side of publication of a novel. They know what they are doing, and they will make a much bigger deal with the publisher than you could handle yourself - possibly more than enough to cover the 15-20% of the revenue they will bill you.
It' s their task to select the subtle detail in these agreements, and they will fight long after the agreement is signed to make sure the publisher doesn't overlook you. Publishers are refusing to consider unasked for entries anyway. The slush piles of unasked novel scripts that used to raid their office.
Frahlingen's submissions, which had already undergone a strict competition, were a much more powerful resource for new novelists. It was therefore only natural to discourage unwanted scripts. I' m not saying that it's a complete flop to go directly to the publishers, only that the best way to find a publisher for your novel is to find a frahling first.
What if all the operatives turn down your novel? What number should you talk to before you give up? Prepare to send your novel to a dozen frahlings if necessary. When your novel is turned down, don't take it to your heels. It' s just one person's view, and there are innumerable tales of today's famed novel that have been turned down twenty, thirty, forty time.
Occasionally, when your novel is turned back, you will be given a default refusal certificate. On other occasions, the spy will put in a few words to explain why he was turned down. Retention of these, but do not be enticed to revise your work. Let's look at the dark side and suppose your novel has been denied by every spy on your roster.
They are hardworking individuals and may have only had a minutes or two to determine if your novel was promising - which means they may have overlooked you. Maybe your novel has fallen outside the boundaries of the kind of phantasy they are into. The next stage is to find a publisher directly.
And if they take unasked scripts, well - get close to them with your novel, just as you did with the frahlings. But if not, go near them anyway. For the time being, you could write a provisional note in which you describe your novel and ask if they are willing to take a look at it. Nor on the bulletin side, we suppose all the editors on your mailing lists have turned down your novel.
So you don't have a choice when it comes to finding a publisher? There' s always the way of self-publication. You' probably haven't seen your novel in month. Do you recall all the denial forms on which the editor or editor annotated your novel? This is how you find a frahling or publisher.
It is only left to speak about which Frahlinguren and publishers you should contact and what you should actually do. This is the topic of the next paper, submission of a script.
