As Kathleen pointed out last week's tip on how to get a publishing deal only made it to the lift of the publisher's office. So this week I'm going to make sure you end up right where you need to be: The publisher's window to his office.
Remember just posting off blind loads of letters, a synopsis and your three chapters is just not going to cut any ice - unless you have the luck of a lottery winner - so listen this is what you do:
Research is vital. Not only do you need to find a publisher that is likely to be interested in your type of work, you also need to find out which window cleaning firm they use. Try google if you're not sure.
Then - you still with me? Then get a job with that window cleaning firm and conceal your manuscript inside your overalls and climb to the right window ( don't look down.) As you clean the window you'll find that the water enables your script to stick to the window. Make sure you leave your name and contact details and that you have a get away plan should things turn nasty.
Do let me know how you get on!
