How To Win A Publishing Deal

by Henry Venmore-Rowland

Henry Venmore-Rowland landed his first book deal at the age of 21. A writer of historical fiction, in this article he describes how the deal came about and discusses the advantages of both traditional publishing and self-publishing. He writes: "First of all I ought to say that I have been very, very lucky. Given my tender years I am hardly in a position to tell others how best to win a publishing deal, but at a friend's behest I will give what advice I can to the next Rowlings, Cornwells and Dan Browns out there."
