I have completed a fantasy adventure novel aimed at 9-14 year olds. How can I get it published without it costing me an arm and leg thorugh the "self publishing" or "vanity press" routes. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Print it out - whatever number of copies you want, take it to the book binders.

Or ... try something like this: https://www.createspace.com/

There are lots of resources to self publish. E Publishing, Vanity Press, but if you are going to self publish I would recommend you do only a few copies and try E Publishing so that you don't end up with 40 boxes of books cluttering up your garage.or crawlspace.

If you have put the time into writing this and you think it will appeal to an audience then write a query letter, a synopsis and send that out.

If you're unsure about what you need to do to get started check your inbox. I sent you my email and I'll offer what help I can.

Cheers
Mark

Here is another avenue you might want to look up go to

www.be-published-canada.com from there you can request a publishers guide.

In addition they can help you if you follow the information and it is easy to do so.
I am looking to getting some poetry published and a CD compilation copy written
myself. I am so busy somehow I never get to the finish line with this stuff but
good luck hope I have been a help to you.

Contact Goose Lane Editions (or goose lane press, I can't remember the name), they're a small publisher. At the very least, they should have some advice if your book doesn't fit their thing. Some publishers are better at certain genres (if you read the writers' magazines, you'll know that), so you need to make sure you approach the correct publisher.

But give Goose Lane a try, they're a smaller publisher with some good success.

Its called Brad and the Initial Jaunts, and is available on a number of websites and also Amazon. Couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again. X

Thanks to ALL of you for your help, advice and encouragement. Much appreciated. Move over JK Rowling (I wish lol).
