Finding Agents and Publishers

Great! You’ve finally got that novel completed! So now what? Time to decide whether to pursue a literary agent or a publisher. Keep in mind it’s not a good idea to submit to both at once, since agents work directly with publishers.  The best thing is to send queries to as many agents in your genre as possible, then if you don’t get responses, start submitting to your list of publishers.

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:
