I have queried and queried on my three books and no luck at all. I have read “The Pitch” and use it as an outline for sending a query. I am careful to follow instructions. This just seems to be a Sisyphean endeavor and my queries are in the dozens now.
I truly believe a literary agent is the best way to market your work, but someone said send queries directly to small publishers. Do such publishers consider works for publication and where do I find them?
Thanks for listening.

You need to search each publisher’s website for their submission guidelines to see if they accept submissions directly from authors, or if they only accept submissions from literary agents.
