    I published a book on Amazon, and people keep asking me for physical copies. It’s non-fiction and has to do with the stigma of mental illness.

    Now I’m just searching for literary agents to make this happen.

    Thank you very much,

    Hello there,

    I saw that you were looking for people who write fantasy and sci-fi. I haven’t really contacted agents before, so you caught my eye and wanted to know if it was possible to communicate what my next steps would be to do with my novel.

    Appreciate it!
