Subbing direct to a publisher - what's the best way?
A visiting friend whom I've known half my life came to dinner and he asked about my novels. He said they sounded interesting - actually he said, "they sound like powerful stuff, Liz," - and offered to introduce me to a publisher he knows through his golf club.
On the basis that you'll never know if you don't try, I'm going to put a submission on a pen-drive for him to take back to the UK.
Should I -
1. Write an introductory letter like I do when subbing to an agent? or
2. Just put on the pen-drive a synopsis and three chapters?
3. Neither of the above?
ps: I have two novel in totally different genres ready to go - how do I choose?
All advice gratefully received.
