How do I find a publisher?

Post  eddie on Fri Sep 09, 2011 1:54 am

I'm writing a slim volume of poetry and prose about my "Season in Hell" on the London Underground, in the belly of the beast: sex, death, murder, sickness, madness etc etc. Much of it is very funny (it's the way I tell 'em).

Counting the illustrations, I've got 50 pages finished (all beautifully typed and filed). Estimated final length: maybe 100 pages, but possibly more if I hit another deep creative seam.

I think a lot of it is very good, and I want to find a publisher for the finished product.

Ideas, please.

My husband, Tom, is a book editor with connections in Britain. I can send you his email address if you're interested. I know you may not be because he's in the US. Either way, we'd love to read it!

I'm tempted to pretend I know a publisher so you send it my way, but I guess I'll just have to wait. bounce

Thanks, LaRue- but it's killing me!

In a previous life, I wrote stage plays- with a certain limited London Fringe success. But that was back in the day when I was a footloose bohemian and I wasn't holding down a demanding full-time job.

Urggh!

I've reached the 100 page mark (that's including the illustrations), and I've revised the estimated final length upwards to about 140 pages, judging from my notes on what remains to be done.
