    Finding the right publisher for a satire.

    Discussion in 'Publisher Discussion' started by Turniphead, Jan 28, 2015.

    Hi there

    Finished a satire and memoir; it was easier to find a publisher for the non-fiction, but now I need to find a home for my satirical novel. This poses an interesting problem - ALL, or at least most agents rep novels; so I have an immense choice.

    What's a good way to narrow them down.

    TY

    Could you find books similar in style to yours and see which agents represented those works?

    Are you looking for a publisher (thread title) or an agent (OP)?

    For either, I agree with Steerpike's idea of looking for similar titles and finding their publishers/agents.

    For agents, you might want to check out querytracker.com. (It has a tab for publishers, too, but I've never used that so wouldn't be comfortable recommending it). You can search by genre - They have 69 agents listed who rep humour/satire.

    Thanks for your feedback - Finding similar books and finding their agent would be hard and it's an agent I need, not a publisher - messed up there with the site post title.
