Publishing Your Writing

Books

Most writer's guidelines recommend getting an agent if you want to publish a book-length work. There are exceptions to this rule: if you are submitting to a small press, if you have a book with a very specialized audience, or, possibly, if your book is likely to sell well; even under these circumstances an agent is recommended. Approach an agent the same way you would a publisher, with respect for his or her limited time and attention. There are lots of excellent resources on how to go about getting an agent; a good place to start is www.writersdigest.com.
