Getting Fiction PublishedPublish Fiction
Increase the chances to publish your fiction story
The publication of your fiction is different from the publication of non-fiction. Fiction submissions (short stories or novels) must be a full script when you send them to a publishers. Generate a request form together with a plot synopse that you can send in with your work. It is much more difficult to dispose of a work of fiction because most large publishers are hesitant to take a chance - to invest a lot of unused and unearned amount of capital - on an intruder.
One look at the number of fiction publications per year in comparison to non-fiction is sufficient - about 50,000 new non-fiction publications in comparison to only about 10,000 new fiction publications. In the first place, your selling materials are your manuscripts that you have worked on. So if you are willing to mail your script to writers and/or operatives, create a short but convincing covering note that you can mail along with the first half of your novel.
Give just enough information in this note to arouse the reader's interest and encourage them to continue reading. This is a journey that leads two unlikely characters - a prisoner on the run and a female con... into a life you don't expect. "Or: "A father-son play that turns the Abraham/Isaac tale upside down.
For fiction sales, it is best to send in the whole script - but by invitation only. When you are ready to send a novel to a publishing house without being asked, contact a few journalists and use an inquiry to get in the front doors. You will not be represented by an operative until she has finished reading a full work.
It may, however, first ask for a resume and a model section to see if it is interested in the whole work. Her action is a short story-telling recap - no more than one or two pages - of your novel in the present. It is the aim of a synopse of plots to arouse the interest of an operative so that he can see the work.
Making it as simple and tempting as possible. Be sure it narrates the whole thing - for example, don't omit the end of the whole thing as a stick-in-the-mud to get the editors to ask for more. They want to convey the essence of the storyline, not the description or the precise dialog, so make it as clear and concise as possible.
Generate the syopsis as a whole, unitary part. In order to compile your abstract, begin with a few phrases that contain an action-packed abstract of the novel. Present the protagonist and the conflicts that are causing the development of the game. For example, here is an example of an approach - as it would be appropriate for submitting - from Anita Shreveýs bestseller "The Pilot's Wife":
Then, tell how the player intends to solve this dispute. Ages, profession, family situation, history (place) and times (past, present, future): Now you' re willing to tell your own tale and concentrate on what happens. Do not forget to concentrate on what happens in the novel, which includes the motivating characters and emotions that drive the plot and give the plot a personal note.
Just think of tell your tale to a group of your best friend. In this way you communicate the essence of the plot completely with excitement, speed and a sense of being. Complet your summary and yet a fast reading that will stand on its own. This is the most efficient summary that gives the impression of having studied the whole work.
It is of course not possible to tell from a particular section or even the first sections whether an unfamiliar author can stage the important fiction components - characters, story, dialogue, tempo, attitude and point of views. This is why writers find that fiction entries for a summary or example section are not sufficient to show that the author can deliver what he promises.
It is therefore important that you review and review your complete novel before you submit it for publishing.
