Featured article: How to get a book published.

If you are interested in getting published you really need a cast-iron determination. Even the best writers have had to deal with frequent rejections from literary agents and publishers, often over many years. It's a pipe-dream to think you can be published without being rejected. It's part of the course. So grit your teeth and set your eyes firmly on your goal.

If your work looks amauterish, literary agents and publishers will never give it serious consideration. The basic rules of thumb are to make sure you use size 12 Times New Roman font and double-space your manuscript. But there's more to it than that. If you really want to impress a literary agent or a publisher, and you really want to get published, take submissions seriously. At Addison & Cole we can provide a specialist consultant to look over your submission in advance and point out its strengths and weaknesses. This can be extremely valuable.
