#AtoZChallenge - Agents and Publishers

Welcome to A-DAY of the Operation Awesome A-to-Z Blogging Challenge!  This month we're doing 26 posts on WRITING MOTIVATION

Are you burned out?  That's okay!  Taking a break from your WIP is sometimes what you need to recharge.  Or, are you letting your current WIP sit for the recommended 4+ weeks so you can go back to it with fresh eyes?

My part of our Writing Motivation theme is – Things to work on that still count as writing!

A – Agents and Publishers

Is your career goal to be traditionally published?  Take a breather from your WIP and do some research into agents to find the ones who you believe might be a good fit for your writing and your business style.  Remember, you're looking for a career, right?  You need a business partner who is excited about what you write AND who you can work with successfully.

Or do you want to research smaller publishers to work with directly, instead of through an agent?

Small press / big press pros and cons

Is a small press right for me?

Or is your goal to self-publish?

Whatever your goals, you can research your options and make a business decision that's right for you.
