Do Your Research

Your manuscript has been written and edited.

It is ready for publication but what is the next move?

It’s time to do your research!

Grab a copy of Writers’ Market~ subscribe to Publishers’ Weekly~  look up publishers’ guidelines ~cross check the listings with editors & predators.

Read agents’  profile on their literary agency websites~  Go the extra mile~before you reach out to connect by surfing the web for articles or blogs where they are interviewed.~Take the time to discern if their area of interest matches your manuscript.

Researching publishers and agents may seem time consuming but sending your manuscript out without it is courting rejection. Do your research~ increase your chance for publication.
