So what now? The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, of course. I have trawled through the writers' bible looking for independent publishers who might possibly maybe take a sneaky look at an unsolicited manuscript. And, interestingly, the big publishers too: Macmillan have a New Writers section where you can send manuscripts to. By email, furthermore, thus saving the costs of printing, posting and including an SAE (about £2 per submission with printing costs and postage). They publish about one a month and receive thousands, but still. It's worth a go.
The other publishers will have to wait until my new toner has arrived so I can print out submissions. Oh, it's an expensive business, this.
