Find an agent for your novel, Part I - Continue with it!
You have written your book to the point of submission. One member of a group of OneRoom novelists asked me to tell a little about my (in)experience with book-publication. I' d be very interested (and I wager some of the group would also be) if you would divide how you go about the book's de facto book broadcasting mechanisms to the media for presentation.
What do you think of an agent? What is required to complete a book before it is sent to an agent: a tutorial, a sketch, the whole Echilada? So when I was writing a couple of e-mails to her and the group, I thought I would be sharing some of those news here.
That'?s the beginning of my search for an agent. When I had finished the design, until I could no longer design (I kept going back to make changes to things I had already changed), I sent the script to my last editor, a former instructor, who suggested that I should study the book (hold them to these offers).
As soon as I have received all the useful proposals, I will reread to make sure the book is available to anyone interested. Well I work on remaining open to any results (especially those I can't think of) and feel thankful that I almost have this book behind me and I'm willing for the next, and I've avoided ending my inquiry as it carries the worse of winters influenza niobi.
