The time has come /lit/
For the past year I have allocated my soul to the craft of writing and am now sitting with three novels and six short stories that are collecting digital dust as they lay idle in the hard drive. I am satisfied with my progress and could not fathom a greater satisfaction than what I knownow, however I am not beyond acknowledging the benefit that I may gain from distributing my work so I come to you for advice.
I am aware of a website that compiles a list of literary journals to which one may submit short stories so it is primarily the novels that I have not decided how to try and distribute. I would appreciate any advice that is more helpful than to search online for agents; that I can and will do until I receive a better idea from you, my brothers.
If it at all helps, one of the works, the first I wrote although without the intention of advertising it as such, I will say falls under the genre of young adult fiction as I believe it will gain a marketable advantage if I do so. The second is a psychological thriller and the third, an epistolary piece that I do not yet know how to classify aside from literary fiction.
I have told myself that I will not begin working on the fourth, the idea of which has reached the stage of conception and which beckons to be manifested into writing, until I distribute these so that I can at least say, I tried.
