How do you get a publisher to look at your book?

Updated Jefferson City, Missouri

I would love to become a published author (think fiction novels), but I do not know what is the right way to get a company to look at my work without hiring an agent. Is the key in your cover letter? If so, how do you write one? Thanks!

To pitch a book you must write a query. It's a short synopsis to pitch your book and get their attention. I would recommend looking at samples online. Query letters typically have a hook, synopsis, title and length of book, book genre, and a short bio on yourself.

I've not done this, but will forward to someone I know who has published books.

Lucy recommends the following next steps:
