Just finished my book and want to find a reputable publisher. I keep being told I have to find a literary Agent to intervene for me with the good publishing houses. How do you find one, and/or any suggestions are much appreciated.
Buy Writers Market (newest version). They have lists of agents, publishing houses, addresses, tips on how to get noticed, etc. Its a lot of work though, so don't get discouraged right off the bat. Keep plugging away at it.
Go to agentquery.com to find a very long list of reputable agents. You can search for an appropriate agent by genre of your book.
Querying takes a long time and lots of work. Keep at it, you may have to send out a hundred queries to get noticed.
There are lots of sites online to teach you to query. Try queryshark.com to see examples of good and bad queries.
self-publishing is also an option if you do not want to find an agent...amazon self-publishes along with tons of other places. Good luck!
If there's a writer's group in your town you might want to ask them for any tips about finding a reputable literary agent.
Just curious! When you say you "just finished" your book, do you mean you finished the first draft, or, have you already revised it a few times?
It's also well worth taking a look at the Writers Beware site, which lists disreputable agencies and publishers.
Other sources of useful information are current writers magazines and The Artists' & Writers' Yearbook.
Self-publishing is very rarely taken seriously by the professional industry.

If I post my unpublished manuscripts to hubpages, will my stories be discovered or stolen?Publishers won't read them unless I hire an agent, and they're expensive if you find legit representation.
