How do I find an agent and / or publisher on the web?
I am writing a book and I am about 1/2 way through writing but would like to start looking for an agent or publisher. What is the best way to do this, or is there a website or someplace to get started? The book is a vampire novel if this helps. I am not in school and just writing this on my own. I don't want to publish the book on the web, but would like to find a list of agents or publishers that are legitimate on the web.

Is a world of connections in that area, you can start on a web but not with a book , maybe short storries, but probability is low for somebody to notice you, best way...on make them listen to you...chose a highschool and write a book at the end as your final study. ..or became your own agent...

When searching for agents, go to the bookstore or library and get your hands on the latest copy of the Guide to Literary Agents or the LMP (Literary Marketplace) guide. Get a feel for agents who represent the genre of work you're producing and how they prefer to be approached. You'll want to compare your list of agents... More
