Does anyone have any ideas on how to get published if you write a book?

I know Ive heard that Stephanie Myer just sent hers into a couple companies and one picked up her twilight book but is it really that easy? Im thinking of writing a book I loved writing when I was younger but when I got older I drifted away from it because I found boys a little too interesting lol just curious thanks

I think you send it to an editor and if they like it they send it to publishing company. But I'm not exactly sure.

I did a report on this senior year in highschool because I wanted to be a writer. I forget a lot of what I researched honestly but the one thing I remember is that nooooooooo its not typically that easy. lol A lot of publishers don't want to read an entire book they are far to busy to deal with everyone who thinks they are a novelist...lol so they like you to send in the basis of the story and see if they are interested. Sometimes write a few chapters...send it in...and if they are interested they will ask you to continue on with the book.

It ain't easy. A lot of publishers...especially the big famous ones will not even look at your manuscript unless you have already been published or have an agent. I know this because I have written and Illustrated a children's cook and I am having trouble finding a publisher to even submit it to. I am also currently writing a novel...so we will see if that goes anywhere either...
