I'm new to the writing world and am currently on the search for a good publisher to publish my fiction novel. I've looked through hundreds of companies by now and am slightly stumped by it all. I came across the Penguin Group and have looked through several of the Penguin Publishing companies such as Firebird, Razorbill, Puffin, etc(all fiction publishers like I need). Does anyone know anything about these companies? Like their contracts, royalties, etc? The author surrenders their full rights to their books to the company when signing the contract with them right? Sorry I'm new and don't really know all that much about these matters. If anyone could provide me with any details to these publishers I would immensely appreciate it.
