Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

Evan Marshall wrote this excellent article with practical steps on how to create an ordered, organized submission campaign. A sloppy approach will get you nowhere and not impress publishers.

I always recommend a multitiered approach: querying literary agents, querying editors, meeting agents, and meeting editors. If you’ve ever submitted anything before, you know why I recommend this approach. Most agents and editors take a long time to reply to writers’ queries, not because they’re mean or don’t care, but because in the grand scheme of things, material from people you don’t already represent or publish is not as important as material from people you do. A wait of several months up to a year is not uncommon. If you queried one agent at a time, one editor at a time, you could be in your dotage by the time you got an answer. Agent know how slow editors can be. That’s why we often make simultaneous submissions.
