Finding a Publisher

What the attendees will learn:
How a writer finds a publisher.

Overview:
This presentation answer a question I often get asked, i.e. how did I find a publisher?

The challenge for the first time author is finding an agent or a publisher willing to invest in you. So, unless you are well known public figure, i.e. athlete, businessman, Nobel prize winner, general or have publishing companies and agents knocking on your door or are a columnist for a major newspaper or magazine who has access to a publishing company, there’s a long and quirky road ahead.

One of the first choices one has to make is what publishing method do you want. Today, technology has given us options – self-publish, pay-to-publish, traditional publishing. Which one is best for you boils down to two key considerations – economics and the target audience.

Once you understand the economic components and who will most likely read your book, then the next is relatively straight forward – find a publisher. You’ve got choices and since publishers get hundreds of queries, Marc helps you figure out how to make yours stand out. In the presentation, he’ll take you the through steps from query process to the contract with the publisher.
