Hi!
My DD(she's 11 and is a very gifted poet) has decided to start raising money for uni. She is thinking of publishing some of her work as a book and I've been searching around on the Internet for publishers. I've come across a few and (since I'm new to all this) I was wondering what was a god percentage of the profits to be given back.

Any help much appreciated!

smile Good luck. My OH is in publishing, and they get dozens of unsolicited manuscripts a week, most of which get glanced at and returned if the sender includes a SAE.
How about vanity publishing and selling to friends and relatives?
OH has also written books and translations, and the total royalties are less than a Saturday job would bring in.
