How to Find and Work with Small Publishers
Cuyahoga County Public Library, South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch
1876 S Green Rd
South Euclid, OH 44121

You’ve heard of Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and the rest of the Big Five publishers, but there’s a whole world of small, independent publishers who will publish your book traditionally. Like traditional publishers, they are selective and pay royalties to authors. How do you find reputable small publishers and what do they expect from their authors?

Get answers to these and other questions about the writing, querying and editing processes from yours truly and these talented authors:
Melinda Carver, Get Positive Live Positive: Clearing the Negativity from Your Life (Self-help, New Age)
Mary Frances Fisher, Paradox Forged in Blood (Historical Mystery)
Amanda Uhl, Mind Waves (Paranormal Romance)

 

Check back for new appearances throughout the year.
