Sending your crime novel off...

Oooh, it's exciting. It's scary. It has also changed utterly. Getting your book published (and more importantly, read) is both much easier and much tougher.

In the olden days, (i.e. a few years ago) there was a set way to attempt this. You got addresses from The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook. You hit on one with a name you liked or whatever random or reasonable reason and packed up your manuscript and posted it. Then, you settled down for a long wait.

You won't need me to tell you that it doesn't work like this any more. Now, there are a lot of options. Self-publishing is a serious option. Some traditionally published writers even choose self-publishing for later books.

We will look at some of the reasons you might choose one publishing method rather than the other in the next post.
