When your manuscript is ready to go to market, or even somewhat earlier, browse bookstores or surf the Internet to identify publishers who release similar kinds of books. Write for each publisher's submission guidelines and current catalog, or study the publishers' listing in the annual directories like Writer's Market to determine if your work fits a specific house.
