What kind of books do you write? ТyTalk. 19:56, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
--Open sketchbook (talk) 19:59, 24 May 2011 (UTC) : Novels, mostly unpublishable hard sci-fi, which I write for my own entertainment, and a fantasy trilogy I'm hunting for a publisher for. I also write manga-style graphic novel scripts I keep promising myself I'll get around to drawing someday.
I've been writing a terrible sci-fi epic for years now. Good luck with the trilogy! ТyTalk. 20:00, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
--Open sketchbook (talk) 20:03, 24 May 2011 (UTC) : Thanks. It is rather frustrating that hard sci-fi hasn't really got a market anymore; I've still kept it off the internet so I can keep the first publish rights just in case, but there really isn't a book market for sci-fi not based on existing properties anymore and that saddens me. The fantasy trilogy was sort of written as a concession to market forces.
Who knows, maybe it will be the next LOTR :) ТyTalk. 20:05, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Find an existing author(one who does similar stuff)'s agent and contact them with a sample chapter and a precis of the plot etc. They'll give you good advice if they think there's anything in it. --Scream!! (talk) 20:15, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
