As my (probably not so final) final edit of my first novel comes to a close, I have been thinking more about the publishing options out there. I am totally open to self publishing and if I do intend to do that, I will be sure to hire a good editor, formatter, cover designer, etc. But I am not fully decided on what publishing method to go with YET.
I am still querying agents that I feel would be a good fit for my book. Might as well give the traditional route another go while I shop for editors.
But there was a third option I had not been considering.
The Small Publishing Press.
More open minded than the Big Six, they can appeal to more experimental or alternative markets. They give “risky” concepts a chance. And many of them will accept unsolicited manuscripts. *Cheers!*
So, it looks like we have yet another good option out there besides querying agents or self publishing.
If you are considering going with a small press, here is a pretty good list from Agent Query Connect.
