: I notice that every time someone asks for steps in publishing a book, including my self, the answer is evaded. Why is this? No matter who I ask, I get the same answer. We can't disclose this information, or we don't know. Or it's a tuff job to find a publisher, when that is not even the question that I asked. Or maybe you would be interested in tutoring or on-line writing classes. Im fed up with lame excuses. So I guess I will try the library where there is no feed back!!! I suggest everyone else who wants straight answers to do the same.
Dear D. Long,
I know from the practical experience of my clients that writing a book and trying to get it published, is horrendous.
You can go to the library and I think there is a book called Bowser that is a book of publishers. Get the names and then try.
Self publication may be easier. I understand that nowadays it is just about as hard to get an agent as it is to get published.
I wish you luck but as far as I know from my practical experience with client it is enormously hard to do.
There is even the risk that a publisher will turn you down and give the theme to a selected author to write a noninfringing book.
If you know a better way I'd like to know so I can tell my clients.
