|Today I received an email from an aspiring writer and I thought I would share it with you, and share my reply.|
I have just completed my first manuscript and I am looking for some advice. I write in the same genres as your novels and I was wondering what I should do. As a Canadian writer, should I seek representation for my
work, or go directly to publishing houses? Should I go with a smaller publisher, just to get my foot in the door? Any advice you can give me would be helpful. Thanks.
Congratulations on completing your first ms!! You should be proud of yourself. Many people start a ms, but never finish.
There are a number of things you should do or consider.
