Although Random House is a big publisher, each imprint only publishes a small number of books each year. Our lists for the next few years are already very full. Any book we take on from a previously unpublished author has to be truly exceptional and so we strongly prefer to consider manuscripts that are sent to us by literary agents and would suggest that you try to get taken on by an agent first. They are in the best position to assess your work, send it to the most appropriate publishers, and negotiate on your behalf should your work be accepted for publication. Literary agencies are listed in The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook
, which is published annually in paperback by A & C Black and can be found in all good bookshops and libraries.
