Former BBC journalist and author Jo Furniss pursued a traditional publishing path for her bestselling, critically acclaimed debut novel All the Little Children. She was fortunate to land an experienced agent through her query process, who pitched her work to larger traditional publishers and small presses, along with Amazon's publishing imprint Lake Union Publishing. In addition to her first book's manuscript, Furniss also had a well-developed second book in the works, which appealed to Lake Union Publishing. They offered her a two-book deal and a solid distribution and marketing plan. Furniss found the editorial process with Lake Union to be quite rigorous with several rounds of edits, but was able to maintain control over the content throughout the process. This attention to quality and refinement allowed her to publish the best possible book.
Jo: I'm interested in the process of query letters and finding an agent. You said yours is in Chicago (I live south west of there about 2 hours).Could you advise on how you found this person and weather or not they would represent a fantasy/ adventure/ romance? How many query letters did you have to present and how long before they responded? A submission address would be great.
Sure. How can I help you? I have no prior experience.
Hello my name is Joe Baronich, if possible I would like to talk to you and get advice about how I should go about getting a scientific theory published safely
