View Full Version : First time nonfiction questions

03-17-2010, 07:44 PM
Hi all,

I am in the process of writing my 1st book, a health and fitness book, that is based on my 20+ years of personal experience in working out, weight management, healthy eating, etc. It will be targeted to a segment of people that I share a passion with (hobby) but who are not typically thought of as healthy people. I am about 25% through the 1st draft and my plan is to be finished with the draft by May.

I have thought about going the self-publishing route since I have a bit of a network within the group/hobby but am wondering if I might do better with "traditional" publishing. My question is, when and how do I start the search for an agent/publisher. Is there a good resource for locating agents or publishers that might be interested in my type of book?

Thanks in advance for the help!
