Okay, so I’m still doing the first revision (where I’ll fix all the obvious stuff that I missed the first time around). I’ve also started looking at where I could go shopping what I’ve done. I might look at the big five, but I’m not that sure about it. I’ve heard horror stories which makes me a bit leery with them.
Right now those big five book publishers are:
- Hachette Book Group
- MacMillian Publishers
- Penguin Random House (used to be separate before they merged)
- Simon and Schuster
Not to mention the genre publishing houses such as Tor (for science fiction) Holman Publishers (Christian literature along with Bibles), and Taylor (publishes school yearbooks).
Then there’s all the small publishers that are more open to taking a first book from a writer, which is what I’ve been thinking about. Self publishing is good, but I’m also of the mind to see if I can go it the traditional route. If it ends up being a small press, then why am I to complain?
