  1. Sounds very daunting indeed. I have a contributors contract with DC Thompson (This England magazine) had some poems published.
    Will eventually submit my book to them in manuscript form.
    I have phoned a few publishers however, they want a contribution to costs. To me that’s a vanity press so no go!
    I’m not pleased that so many publisher’s want budding authors to go through an agent.
    Can’t they take the time to read through a submitted manuscript?
    I’m exasperated.

    1. Yes, it can be daunting, and such a long process! I wouldn’t go with a vanity press either! It might be worth trying some small presses or independent publishers that don’t require an agent – they are out there. I chatted with an author recently who had a great experience doing that.
