Although many people are desirous to know how to publish their books with them, they don’t know how to go about it. This post would enlighten you on how to do that.
1. Read Their Books: Not necessarily all. Try to read their works. If you can get your hands on the summaries of their books, do that also. It would give you a chance to know if your book can be published with them.
2. Your synopsis: Send Synopsis not blurb or Teaser: Synopsis is what the editors read after they have read some parts of your novel. The synopsis gives them details on the main theme, a major character, and the major conflict.
Whereas, a teaser is just to catch the readers’ attention. For example:
The Enchanted Swans by Christy Nicholas
Fionnuala must care for her three brothers while learning to live under an evil curse. Will she find a way to break the spell, or will they remain swans, tethered to three places for nine hundred years?
Meanwhile, Blurbs are quotes from other people about your book.
Parresia Publisher would only accept a synopsis, and ensure it is not more than a page ( Why will it be more than a page, are you writing another novel).
