Genres I write in are fantasy, action (not gory) horror (not too intimate, but very slight), suspense, make-believe, fantasy. I would like to get published by a publisher. But I need some ideas and information on them. Do you need to pay to submit or send your manuscript to a publisher? And if they say it's good and want to publish it, do you need to pay to get the books published? What if you want to sell in stores? do you need to purchase copies and sell them to bookstores? Any good publishing companies that I could take a look into, no spam or tricks, but one that I could send my manuscript to (for free through mail or post-mail) for someone to look at and tell me what they think of it? Any ideas or suggestions?
