    Does anyone have any suggestions?  I have the 2010 Writer's Market, and I know about the Writer Beware website.  I was just wondering if anyone has any advice.

      Hey, Dave. As many publishing houses will not accept unsolicited manuscripts, you'd probably be the wiser to not submit any unsolicited manuscripts to a literary agents as they too get flooded.  My best advice to you is to do a combination of the following:

      Submit your work to contests.  Here's a very useful link, as there are many every month: … esthub.htm

      The next thing would be to subscribe to some of the literary journals, which are usually pretty affordable so you can actually see just what type of work they expect from those who are planning to submit manuscripts to them.

      I hope this helps.
