Hey everyone, I'm an aspiring writer and I'm new to this forum. I've been recommended to sites such as this for the sake of my sanity, and would dearly like some help with understanding the current market. My (current) genres are science fiction and fantasy.
First, I'd definitely like to know how the market is on accepting new SF and Fantasy. I know there's blurb somewhere about them being among the most profitable genres, but I'd like some down-to-earth advice about how acceptable it is and what agencies are most receptive.
Second, I'd like some help on how the self-publishing market's going. The last time I tried it, my work was not as polished and the market seemed flooded. How's it going now, and how can I do my best to make sure I get noticed?
Many thanks to anyone who can help. If there is some way I can securely share some of my writing for others to see here, I'd be more than willing to do so.
