Default Getting Published

Do any of you have any tips on getting a book published?
Only when you know you do not know do you know.

Perhaps you should write what people like to read. I heard the little-old lady industry does really well with people like Nora Roberts and Daniel Steele. =)

you’re going to use
the transitive relation
and see why.

You should write whatever you want to write (within reason--rips-offs of Harry Potter will more likely land you in court than on a bookshelf ). As for publishing itself, it's a long and complicated process that I don't have time to fully explain! The bloomsbury website (I think it's www.bloomsbury.com ) is pretty useful, in the Writer's section. Have a look around in the internet, there's plenty about it. Good luck if you go for it! (And grow elephant-thick skin for those early rejections!)

Yes, rejections are tough, I got my first one a few months ago. It stung.
