  • There is a book called Writers Market that has lists and lists of publishing houses and descriptions of what kinds of submissions they accept. A lot of them wont' take unsolicited, unpublished people. It's hard to get started. If you are really serious, you may need to get an agent. I got the book at Barnes & Noble.

  • The only thing I did was in 8th grade I submitted a poem in a contest and it was chosen and published but I don't know if that counts. Good Luck on the book. I've always wanted to write one too but never did.
