Can anyone help?

I am (as anyone who has read my Blog will know) a self-published Author.

I have stumbled across a problem which I am hoping I cannot search any useful information to.

I have approached many Publishing Houses and Literary Agencies although some of them do not accept unsolicited work my work is not unsolicited as I am a published Author.

I am trying to encourage them to read my second and third sequels but they are refusing with the old adage; ‘we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts’.

I have tried to explain my situation and the fact I am already a ‘published Author’ but this does not seem to be having any positive effect.

If you have any comments or helpful advice, I would appreciate it.

I do not know how to cross the threshold of actually persuading them to read a section of the sequels if they won’t accept ‘unsolicited works’ and yet I am indeed a published Author!

Unsolicited works are unsolicited. Being a published author does not negate an unsolicited manuscript. If you are a published author with a legitimate publisher, get an agent OR lots of sales for your first book. Then you won't be considered unsolicited. Or, get a recognized author from that publisher to recommend your manuscript to them. Or get a good independent bookseller to recommend your work to the publisher.
