As the author or creator, the right time to share your work is when you feel confident that it’ll speak for itself—without you having to be in the room. If you’re going to want to be over our shoulder saying, “Well, this part will be fixed…” or “I intend to make this part a little clearer…” you aren’t ready to share the work, which is completely fine. That’s where we come in. Many writers make the mistake of looking for a publisher too soon. A publisher’s primary job is to sell your work, so if you don’t have anything yet to sell, best to wait until you do. We consider the salability of your work, not its potential salability. You get one first impression. Make it count.
