Publish Books

Even professional writers can pass without an agency representing them. Publishers are willing to deal directly with an author are few. 95% Prefer to work with the agent that represents it and be glad to do and assume that you have completed a detective novel and know ten publishing houses that also published the genus. However, only an agent knows to what will interest them the approach that you have given to his novel. And that, in the case of a genus relatively easy to classify. Imagine that his novel tells the story of a teenager who suddenly left orphaned by losing their parents in an accident and must go to live with other family members to a remote site, where he began to realize that there is some kind of family secret that everyone try to skip over with a subject so difficult to accommodate such as gender (and unfortunately, publishers work encasing to books and authors), if you do not have an agent you will be virtually impossible to give with the appropriate editor not only so that you publish the book, but even to read it, because almost never publishers read the materials submitted by an author.
