Hey all,

I just recently started my first novel (quite odd but still based upon a true story, I'll have to post my little description sometime) and I am completely confused about where to go once I have it completed. Does anyone here know what one would do to get in contact with a publisher? A letter, send a copy of the story, whatever. Any help is greatly appreciated. :) Thanks.

A good place to start is by getting yourself a copy of THE WRITER'S MARKET for 2002. "8,000 Editors Who Buy What You Write"

There's also a novel and short story specific Writer's Market edition.

Good luck!
