  • The best way is to find an agent. You will probably get many rejections, as we all do at first. The agent will want to read the first three chapters. If they want to see more, they'll ask. Sending your work to random publishers without representation rarely works out. It's called sending a book "over the transom," and most of them are thrown away. Find an agent. That's the first place to start. :) Good luck!

  • My mom recently had a college work book published for business speach classes, her and coworker had been working on it for months and finally finished it. I can ask her who she used and get back to you. Add me as a friend if you want to use this idea. If not I wish you good luck.
