You should ask Cata; I know she's looked into publishing options extensively before.

I have about 560kb of info about publishing houses in Word docs. Guidelines for submission, rules, even contact info for a couple of them. Also I have contact info for a literary agent that worked with my uncle for years.

That's true, but most publishing houses request an estimated wordcount for each manuscript.

ow, ya. I also want to know there Word Count Formula for any realy oober advised people you would consider willing to give a newbie a fair shot. I know some have there own formula of so many charectors equals a word. As alos no one I have found will publish a newbie writer book over 100,000 words.

Courier New, Size 12 double spaced if I recall correctly is a majority but not all preferd Publishing Houses required for drafts intended for review.

Self Publishing is not feasible for a poor writer as I am also looking at the Google mess where they are hooking up the subscribers to there idea of a search engine to include the entire inventory of a handfull of Major Univeristy and more Libraries. Not good as google profits by giving access to all sorts of books there entire collection and Authors get ( Bleep )

I'll forgive Shin because he must be thinking of the guys who publish Play Boy and Hustler not books with words. :lol:

I meant theasable as in reasonable as I don’t have the complete English Dictionary feasible will best fit. still does not explain where you got sable from as if you did not take letters away and start playing scrabble you would realize that. Where you get Sable. That is it. Your fired as my Chief Editor. Don't you know your suposed to be a 1,000 times more smarter than me. Able to read my mind and keep me from screwing up. Man your slacking on your job. lmao 👅

P.S. I need a more complete dictionary I can caryy around as it irks me not to find a word I am looking for. lol

:x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

I read an Article the other day that is irking me to the point of wanting to burn all Krispy Kremes to the very foundation. Still not paid my due wage, sverence pay of any compensation for my 5 Minute notice we dont have jobs from 2006. I read that they Gave there CEO's a sweet Bonus for loosing less moeny than expected. lmao

:x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

My Universal Goal is now to get a book and movie deal writing a Sci-Fi story where as I blow up a Krispy Kreme in every Chapter if not at least every other Chapter as a bonus. Further more I press the trigger to blow the Corperate office up.

You originally wrote 'thesable.' Since it's not a word, the closest correct thing for it to be would be two words smushed together: the sable... thesable... it's easy to see that way.

Theasable isn't a word either. Neither is thesible or any variation of that pronunciation. It's the lisp of English speakers who incorrectly pronounce feasible.

You work at a Krispy Kreme? I love Krispy Kreme.
