Want to get published but don’t know where to start?

Maybe you have a finished manuscript or just an idea stuck in your head. Email me today at Deb [at] DebraLButterfield [dot] com, and let's discuss how I can help you reach your dream of publication.


  1. Hi Debra, this is great info. I have yet to feel led to seek out an agent but I know it is the dream of many to have one. I’d encourage everyone to meet a prospective agent in person before signing any contracts. A contract is a legally binding matter and no one wants to be “married” to the wrong agent.

    • Elaine, thanks for that great advice about meeting an agent in person. The place to do that is at writers’ conferences. Lacking that, the next best thing would be a phone conversation. Like finding the right fit in a shoe, it’s important to get the right agent or your writing life can be painful.
