I came across the Cryptid Zoo last week http://www.newanimal.org/ and thought it would be a good fit for Weirdness Wednesdays.
Entities that may be considered cryptids by cryptozoologists include Bigfoot, the chupacabra, or Mokele-mbembe. Related pseudosciences include Young Earth creationism, ghost hunting, and ufology. Some dictionaries and encyclopedias define the term “cryptid” as an animal whose existence is unsubstantiated.

My suggestion to any author is to forgo the traditional publishing route. The odds of being picked up by a good literary agent (the key step in determining if you will be picked up by a major traditional publishing company are very low. Most good agents are booked solid except when one of their clients dies, retires, or stops writing. Plus, a good agent is going to cut into your thin profit margin from your book sales.
Also, traditional publishers have a bad habit of keeping most of the money from your hard work, dictating how much you can charge for the print books and ebooks, what your cover looks like, book length, and a whole slew of other stuff where you have to give up control.
