How to approach an agent or publisher

So, you’ve written your first novel. (Well done!)  
You’ve typed “The end”.
You’ve given yourself a massive pat on the back and you might even have gone out for a night of dancing to celebrate (good girl!).
Now what?
Well, it’s time to send it off, of course!

“Off? Off to whom, exactly? And how do I go about that?”
Having been there, sent off the manuscript, faced rejection and finally secured an agent and a publisher, I'm happy to share my experience with you.

I'm over on The Writer's ABC Checklist chatting about what to do next! 

Please note, I made a few big mistakes, so hopefully you can learn from my mistakes and make the process a lot more pain-free!

Among the emails I receive from writers, the most asked question is "How do I go about approaching an agent/ publisher?" so now is the time to answer that question!

I include a few tips and hopefully some steps in the right direction.
