Hi: I'm at the stage now where I want to learn more about the publishing options for a Canadian author. My plan is to review the publishers to identify some good fits, with the intention of fine tuning my ABI and eventually either pitching directly to them (if they accept it) or identifying associated agents and querying them instead. Here's the problem I've encountered so far... I have only tripped over publishers by chance (eg: when they do a talk or sponsor a conference) and the few I've been exposed to just aren't interested in my chosen genre and subject matter. Nothing wrong with them, just not a good fit. And I'm out of ideas, and no longer want to rely on random chance. I am willing to invest time doing research, but no idea how to be comprehensive.
