Looking for publishing advice

freshbananas freshbananas
I decided this year that if I didn't work towards publishng a book I would never fogive myself. I just hit my first mile stone 10,000 words!

I haven't decided if I wanted to go towards romance or romance erotica. I am hoping to punch out between 60-100,000 words for my book. It would be a hedrosexual couple, sci fi, furuteristic, big outer conflict (war of the galexy) with innder conflicts for the couple. I know I can turn it into either turn it into a tender mushy, PC book or I go for sweet but tough love D/s stuff.

Do you have advice for me?
This will be my first attempt to be published. Being my first are there themes I shouldn't touch? I've been studying publishers from the big to the small and their requirements. Are there things I should be aware of? Publishers I should aviod?
as a model for a number of years I learned there were people you just didn't work with, catch phases in contracts that were red flags and so forth
and I want to make sure there are not any of these I should be aware of. Also I type slightly better in my books, its not nearly as painful as reading this post!

I just finished my first book about six months ago and am now stuck trying to either find an agent or get my book published directly through a publisher. The only advise that I can offer is that no matter how many times your manuscript might get rejected by agents or publishers, never give up the fight. It might take a few years but eventually someone will see the potential and hard work that went into writing your novel. I hope everything works out well for you, I'm still trying lol.
