Great! You’ve finally got that novel completed! So now what? Time to decide whether to pursue a literary agent or a publisher.

Publishers Marketplace online is a great resource for obtaining a list of agents or publishers for your novel. There is an option for a paid membership of $20 per month for their premium services, but you can do a query of agents or publishers that specialize in a particular genre.
Here are a few other great Websites for finding agents and publishers:
