I just thought I would let you know how things are going with my road to publication.
Right now I am researching publishers, then I will move on to agents. I am compiling a list of publishers that take unsolicited manuscripts. My sources? So far Amazon.com. I looked up the 100 top Fantasy books and looked at their publishers. I also looked at other fantasy books and their publishers.I am a little wary of The Writers Market because of some reviews I have read lately. Anyone a subscriber?
My goal was to have a list of 10 publishers to submit to. My list is at 10 now and I am still researching. That is encouraging. Once I have finished compiling my list I am going to research the books that each publishes to make sure Shadowed Stones would be a good fit.
Then it is on to preparing my submission packets. I plan to allow one re-submission (in case the first gets lost) for each. If nothing turns up at the end of that I will turn to looking for an agent.
P.S. Also in my search I found this good article: So You Want To Publish Your SF Fantasy. It listed a few publishers that I checked out.
