Key Takeaways on how to get a publisher without an agent

Your online presence is of uttermost importance. A lot of agents and publishers will actually look at your online platform and following before they take on your manuscript. Why? Because in the end, they are just part of a business that has to try and sell books. If you don’t sell books, your business will go belly up.
Another thing you have to keep in mind is that these people also have online social media profiles and that you can perfectly approach publishers and agents on Twitter. A lot of agents will even call for new manuscripts via these platforms. You do have to keep in mind that although social media is very personal and social, you have to keep your communications with agents and publishers VERY professional.
