Anyone Know a Good Publisher?

I went to bed at 12:30 last night.

At 12:45 I was tossing and turning, thoughts racing through my head.

By 1:00, my ass was parked in front of this computer, tapping away at the keys, feverishly firing out the first 1000 words of what I think will be an outstanding book.

No - not the one about me and my old man. Another one. A different one. One that is a little more - how shall I put this? - marketable.

And there is a market for it. I know. I checked.

Problem is, I have no idea who to contact about said idea and making it a reality.

I'm so confident in this idea that I want to shop it before it's even complete, that's how confident I am that someone else will recognize the idea as the original, exciting and potentially lucrative concept I think it is.

I've started flipping through the Interwebs looking for publishers and have stumbled across a couple, but none of them appeal to me. Maybe I'm thinking too big, but some small town press in Nowhere, Ontario isn't who I see putting this bad boy out.

This concept is worthy of the big boys, only I'm not sure who the big boys are and how I would get in touch with them.

If you've got more insight into this than me, fill me in would ya?

In the meantime, I've got some more writing to do...

Spence, you should take a peek in some of your favorite books. They should have the name and address of the publisher. If their book is your type of book then chances are good that your book is their type of book.

Good luck with the search.
