Currently there are 100,000 publishers in the U.S. alone, so it's good to have a guide when you're seeking the publisher who'll become yours.

If you have employed BookEval for 15 or more hours of editing services, I am as invested in your book as you are. For you, BookEval monitors, continually and at no charge, publishing-industry "calls for manuscripts," contests, and tipoffs from my network that might, with luck, bring your work closer to publication.

The fee for Publisher Search is .05 per word of your manuscript, if it's prose. If it's poetry or a children's book, the fee is $75 per hour.
