Booking It

Artistic Concerns

1. The book: A whole greater than the sum of its parts? Showcase of set pieces?

2. Frontloading: Why? Why not?

3. Arc and order: Narrative or thematic? Tension and resolution?

4. Length: Cut 'til you bleed? Shape it case by case?

5. Getting help: Recruit my friends? Pay a stranger?

6. How do you know when you're done?

Practical Concerns

1. Where do I send it?

	a. What do I look for in a press?

	b. Where do I find information about presses?

	c. How do I keep track of my submissions?

2. Money: How much is this going to cost me? How much am I going to make?

3. How do I read the rejections?

4. How long is this going to take? What do I do in the meantime?

5. Once a press says yes, what do I do?

6. What about the next book?
