Question
Hi!
Thanks in advance for your time and expertise!
I am finishing up (hopefully) my book...it is a book on single parenting........
Once I am done on all the proof reading, etc., what is my next step?
It is not a long book and would be more of a self help type of book.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Tricia

Answer
1. Identify publishers of this type of book at a bookstore or library.

2.  Prepare a prospectus -- usually two to three chapters, a chapter outline, and an estimate of sales potential.

3.  Duplicate the prospectus and circulate it to the publishers.
