I live in India.
My story is based around a haunted hospital in America and takes place there. There is one Indian character, but I’m not sure if it’s enough to get Indian agents interested.
What if, when I query, some agent from, say, America picks it up and wants to publish it? What if I DO get a deal, but from an American branch of a publisher? Will it be practical for me? Will I have to visit that country for the publishing/editing process?
See, my dream is to publish with the big five: Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, Hachette, Bloomsbury, Simon and Schuster.
Can someone guide me and help me make my dream come true? I haven’t started querying yet; I’m doing the final editing right now.
