Best Places To Submit? So That Agents Take Me Seriously?

Postby Jason Parker » Wed Jul 06, 2016 9:45 am

MY GOAL: When I query agents about my manuscripts, I want to be taken seriously.

I have a few stories published in small literary magazines, but I don't know if they carry much weight credibility-wise.

I know if I win WOTF, then that'll carry serious weight.

I know if I get published in Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, then that'll carry some weight.

What are a couple other big kahunas?

When I query an agent about one of my manuscripts, I want to be taken seriously.

Where do I need to be published in order to be taken seriously?
