Thank you very much! That was our impression but wanted to make sure. We will just do it the old fashioned way. A bookstore here has recommender a distributer and said they wanted to buy some books.

If you want to self-published, look into kindle, smashwords, etc. If you want to go the traditional route, use querytracker.com to help you find an agent. Use predators and editors and absolute water cooler to make sure agent is legit. Use google religiously to research everything.

Submitted a few pages of manuscript to Seymour Agency this afternoon. Now they want the full manuscript. The research i have done shows it to be reputable. Am I correct?

Thanks so much for the quick response! This literary world is new to us and we are trying to do things wisely. Submitting everything now to the agency. Just excited to get a toe in the front door with my first query letter!

The Seymour Agency is legit and very well-known. They are listed on querytracker and have many bestselling clients. They always represent at PitchFest in NYC every year.

How about cross books? Vanity publisher or real?
